Both of my parents are from the Cape, so I am quite familiar with the charm that the peninsula brings. They both prefer the mid-Cape and don’t really venture past Barnstable. Given this preference, I only visited Provincetown once in my early teens, and from that moment on I have always wanted to go back. Upon first arrival to the Cape, Paul was in love, more than I. Therefore, I thought I would book a weekend away in P-town to show Paul a place that I think fits us both perfectly. Despite the threats of Cape traffic, we made the trek up the arm!
I used Airbnb (which I love) to find a nice spot close to downtown and right by the water! Paul’s happiness is directly correlated to his proximity to water; therefore, I wasn’t going to let him down!
While in Town:
The Canteen is the perfect spot for late lunch and drinks! P-town was filled with adorable food markets that had everything you needed from Vermints to Brie to Malbec. Some of our favorites were Angel Food, East End Market and 141 Bradford Natural Market. 141 Market was definitely my favorite of the three because it had everything and it was Vegan-friendly! Lastly, in terms of dinner spots, Central House for a sit down and Spiritus for take out! Central House was lovely because they have this huge open-air side (covered, thank you) patio with ocean view. Spiritus was the perfect takeout after a long day of walking, we got green pepper, mushroom and ricotta pizza and it was awesome! Also, I grew up in CT and therefore, have a pretty high standard for pizza.
Harbor Lounge and Aqua bar are good spots if you are looking for waterfront patio drinks. If you are looking for more of an upscale and relaxed vibe, I would recommend Sage! They have a very nice outdoor seating area with cozy seats and a fire pit which is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner wine flight!
Adorbs little shop – unfortunately not open…
Awesome market – everything from fresh produce to wine to breakfast sandwiches!
And come on, how cape cod is this beaut?!?
