DayTrip: Provincetown, MA

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


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.
