New England Road Trip; Chapter 9 – Cape Cod (Chatham and Provincetown)

(written by Bill)

This is a series of blogs covering a 21 day road-trip my wife and I made through eight New England States during the month of September – Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts (Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Boston).

We’ve covered Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island to date.

Chapter 9 – Hated to leave Rhode Island, it is so beautiful, but we’re looking forward to Cape Cod.  Since we knew we would be in Cape Cod for 4 days (the most of any location on our trip), we selected the town of Chatham to put down anchor (so to speak). Chatham is located pretty close to the center of the Cape, and is home to the area’s main tuna fleet and also a yachtsman’s harbor . After securing accommodations, we jumped in the car and headed to Provincetown which is at the tip of the cape.

We spent the day visiting the Pilgrim Monument Provincetown Museum then rented bikes and toured some of the area in a relaxing and peaceful fashion. It’s a great town and one that you really need to spend some time wandering around to see it’s true charm and real character.

Our next blog will be covering gorgeous Nantucket.

Hope you enjoy…

    Hi. Great pictures, as always. So crisp, it’s like looking out of a car window. Where did you stay at Chatham? Would you recommend the place?

      I apologize for neglecting to mention where we stayed, which I typically like to include. We stayed at the Chatham Wayside Inn (, which we absolutely loved. The accommodations were excellent, food was superb, staff was great, and the location couldn’t have been better. Since it was located right in town, we were able to take walks in the early evening and visit the many shops along the main street. As I mentioned in the blog, it is near the middle of the Cape which made traveling to the other locations in the area extremely simple. Yes we would, without question, recommend the Chatham Wayside Inn. Thanks very much for your wonderful comments (and great question). bill
