We've been vacationing on the Cape for about 4 years and have a weeklong rental in mid-July on the bayside in Eastham (can walk to Kingsbury beach). We have two small children (2 year old and 5 year old).
I see from all the posts that there is a wealth of knowledge on this board. Hoping for some recommendations (in the Provincetown through Orleans area) for new things to try since we seem to always fall back on our typical 'haunts'.
Below is a list of what we have done (and enjoyed) in past years to give you a sense of what new things we may enjoy this year.
*Moby Dick's - We have always had great food and great service here and it is very child-friendly.
*Arnold's - Ok, but we skipped it last year due to long lines and underwhelming/average food.
*Friendly Fisherman - Good food. Thinking of trying more cooking this year and picking up fresh fish/seafood from the market.
*Hole in One Donut Shop
*First Encounter - Nice beach, good for little ones.
*Kingsbury Beach - Short walk from our rental, warm, good for kids.
*Marconi Beach - Fun for a day or two to experience the surf and visit The National Seashore.
*Race Point - Picturesque but a tough walk down those dunes with little ones (and requisite gear) in tow.
*Dolphin Tours Whale Watch - This was fun but had a few bouts of seasickness given 12 foot seas that day.
*Hike around Fort Hill - For the beautiful views.
*Shopping in Chatham and Provincetown
Thanks in advance!
