DayTrip: Provincetown, MA

DayTrip gives you a quick taste of a town you don’t know. 

ProvHarbor

At the very end of Cape Cod—peek closely to see Long Point Lighthouse across the harbor.

EATsomething classic (a freshly fried malassada?) at Provincetown Portuguese Bakery [299 Commercial St.] and pay homage to this town’s roots. Or try something new in Karoo Kafe [338 Commercial St.], where the South African fare transports you as far as you can get from Cape Cod. Of course, there’s always Lorraine’s [133 Commercial St.], delicious Mexican eatery in the West End that’s reliably open year-round— even New Year’s Eve.

SLEEPsomewhere cozy like Snug Cottage [178 Bradford St.] — quiet, cute, and off the main drag, but only a short walk to the hub of town. Or take advantage of an incredible view at Lands End Inn [22 Commercial St.], but you may not want to leave your perch to see the rest of town.

GOstock up on some beach reads at Tim’s Used Books [242 Commercial St.], a little cottage off the main street stacked to the ceilings with well-loved paperbacks. Switch up your gallery crawl with a stop at Provincetown Art Association and Museum [460 Commercial St.], housed in a strikingly modern building that gives you a break from the quaint. And if the wind is calm, you can walk off your malassadas with a hike to Long Point Lighthouse [1 Commercial St.] which sits all alone at the very tip of the Cape.
