Expensive but amazing. Plan to dress up but the food and atmosphere is great. Try the tequila mockingbird to start. It’s a little spicy 🌶. Follow with the Rhode Island steamers appetizer, the filet mignon entrée melts in your mouth, and the lemon curd dessert is so good.

Right on the water in Dennisport. It’s a dress up place but something worth the trip. They offer valet and seating on the ocean. Ask for a crab cake to start and you won’t regret it.

Located in Provincetown which is a hike from the condo (about an hour). Well worth a day trip to see National seashore ( also in description) and a whale watch. Food here will be something you won’t forget. The lobster newberg is my favorite 😍

This beach has beautiful soft sand that stretches out really far at low tide. It’s excellent sand castle making sand. There’s also food and bathrooms during summer months. NOTE: The water on this side of the Cape is typically colder.

This beach is about a half hour away but has beautiful soft white sand and sometimes there’s seals visible while there. Although I don’t recommend going to close they are very mean and could attack as well as the sharks. Swim safe.

This beach is very lively in the summer. The water tends to be a bit warmer. There’s nearby food with seafood and burgers. Kind of pricey would recommend going to Main Street Hyannis and get subs from The little Sandwich spot also noted in my food section

Beautiful beach sand and clear waters. Water is much colder than other side of the Cape. One of my favorite places at low tide. Lots of sand to walk out on and and build sand castles or sit in beach chairs and relax all day. They have bathrooms and a snack bar. Parking lot fills up quickly in the summer. If you want to make a day of it don’t be later than 7/8 in the morning to guarantee parking. Parking prices continue to rise unfortunately they are almost 40 a day to park. Check out some nice ponds while your here for a free parking day with no sharks or biting sea life.

Sightseeing

Located an hour away but worth the trip. The main road you want to be on is Commercial Street. There’s whale watching, beaches, tons of shops, and restaurants. Local artists, and many street performers playing musical instruments throughout the summer. At night there’s lots of music and bars everywhere people walk around in the main road. They do a firework show every year on or around the Fourth of July. Very busy area and you’ll probably have to pay to park. On your way up to Provincetown you’ll be surrounded by dunes for some excellent photo memories. I recommend making a whole day trip out of this and end with some mini golf or a double feature outdoor movie at the Welfleet Drive-in Theater. (Also a great spot)

Nantucket is a small island that’s a quick boat trip out Hyannis (under an hour.) It’s a beautiful place to see for the day. The speed limit doesn’t go over 45mph. There’s a great bus tour there too that explains a lot of the history of the island. Definitely worth a trip.

This is one of the prettiest beaches on the Cape. There’s a strong possibility of seeing a seal or shark. They are often out there, but don’t get to close. None of them are nice.

This island is very similar to Cape Cod. There are ferries out in Hyannis that will get you there. It would take a week to see all this island. Lots of nice beaches there.

Things to do

The drive-in theater in Wellfleet is about 40 min from the lemon squeeze condo and 50 minutes from The Orange Twist. It offers 2 movies for the cost of 1. They usually show a kid movie first and then a somewhat adult one after. Not always the case, but they do have a website and you can check the local playing times for each week. They have a nice snack bar in the middle of the drive in that has the best curly fries and a playground for the kids during intermission time. Bring bug spray and throw blankets if you plan to sit outside the nights can get cold. There’s mini golf and ice cream right at the front entrance of the drive-in as well.

This cool pirate themed mini golf has 2 different courses that you can play. There’s neat caves and holes that jump over running water. In one hole you actually hit the ball in the water for the better shot at the hole in one. It’s really fun for all ages and the kids get little pirate flags and rings at the end of the game. Located in south Yarmouth on route 28. Only 8 minutes from lemon squeeze and 5 minutes from the Orange Twist. They are expensive, but it’s an awesome experience. If you want a cheaper mini golf event keep driving down 28 towards Hyannis and you’ll see a few other options. Those other places are just as nice as well.
