On a very hot and sunny day in August, I dropped my wife and kids there. There is not much shadow there so I would have been burned alive. They came back with stories about a fantastic beach with good facilities and friendly people. It...More
Our annual Oct. trip to the cape includes a picnic lunch here to enjoy the sun, walk on the beach and meet people from all over. The parking area on the north side is undergoing reconstruction, so it is limited at this time.
This time of year the beach is very low key, but a bit more crowded because of the holiday weekend. The parking lot has taken a big hit from the March 2018 storms. Lots of sea, sun and sand, nothing fancy. Gorgeous for quiet each...More

The best way to see the whales up close is to go to Provincetown and take a whale watching trip from MacMillan Wharf. Nantucket is an island about 30 miles out of Hyannis. The Cape and Island Steamship Authority has ships leaving for Nantucket about every hour. The high-speed ferry cost about $50.00. It only takes 1-1/2 to two hours for the Hyannis/Nantucket trip. Cape Cod has the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority. Buses run from Wood's Hole in Falmouth to P-Town. A bus trip on any "fixed Route" is $2.00 or $1.00 for seniors. Hyannis has a trolley that makes a loop every 1/2 hour. The trolley cost $1.00 I hope this helps you.
Four girlfriends plan to go to Provincetown from Wellfleet on 5/10. We know we want to do whale watching, any preferable companies?, and it looks like we certainly need to see the Pilgrim Monument and Herring Cove Beach. What restaurants do we want to be sure we don't miss? Since this is our first time there, we're not sure what is worth stopping for between Wellfleet and Ptown. Any suggestions will be appreciated -- wouldn't plan a trip without. Thanks.

Herring Cove is a nice bay side beach, Race Point Beach is a spectacular Ocean side beach. Between Wellfleet and P-town there's not much ... but be sure to visit one of the National Seashore Visitors' Center. You can do this in Eastham .... it's just after the Orleans Rotary and a good stopping point if you need to stretch your legs and use the facilities. If you choose to bypass that one, the other one is in the duens Provincetown. Consider following one or two of the walking trails. I...More
Animals on the Outer Cape (19 Replies)
I have been visiting this area for years. I have never "bumped into" such a variety of animals as I have the past week or so. I posted about the "turtle crossing" last week. On Saturday night we went stargazing at Racepoint Beach and we saw coyotes in the dunes right near the entrance to Herring Cove Beach. In fact we stopped at the exit from HC and watched one sniffing the road in front of our car. The was a second one but it stayed in the brush, only peaking out occasionally. We...More

Love it! a few years ago we were there Christmas week staying in Brewster. Traveling to Harwich for dinner one night, we caught a large canine in the headlights - I swore it was a wolf, but it probably was a coyote.
Braemar resort (9 Replies)
We just spent five nights here and thought I would post this, as there seems to be precious little information on Tripadvisor about this resort. There are perhaps forty mainly studio condos in this complex. I understand they are individually owned with a number of them rented out by the property managers on behalf of owners. Our condo was clean, well equipped, very private (great private deck) and just perfect for two. It was very good value for money in shoulder season. A small public...More

I've driven by there more times than I can count and always thought it looked well-cared for (even before it went condo). Thanks for the inside-scoop!
