Cape Cod

Chatham, MA, United States
3 Kudos
I traveled to Cape Cod for the first time and saw most of the Cape over a long weekend including Chatham (where we stayed), Hyannis, Harwich, Dennisport, and Provincetown. We had great food, amazing weather, and had the opportunity to attend the most beautiful beach wedding for my boyfriend's brother and his now wife. The Cape was different than what I expected. It did not feel like I was at the beach as I had expected it to feel. It was beautiful, though, with lots of trees and scenic views of the ocean. I would like to go again to explore the Cape by boat.
Story Details


Park/Ride Lot - Rte 6 & 132
I took the Plymouth & Brockton bus to and from Logan Airport and the Cape. It was pretty easy, just made a lot of stops. It was also relatively inexpensive at $27 each way.

Bars and nightlife

Mad Minnow Bar & Kitchen
The bride and groom hosted a happy hour at the Mad Minnow. They had a tent set up outside and had decorated nicely. Storms rolled in, so we had to move the party inside. It's very cute!
Ocean House Beach Bar
Ocean House Beach Bar
We visited this beach bar twice during our visit to the Cape, and it was such a beautiful place! They had live music both days we came for drinks.
Chatham Squire
The after party for the wedding was held here. It was a cute bar, very crowded. The AC was broken, so it was very hot, but we had a great time.

Culture and experiences

We drove to Provincetown to walk around for a couple of hours during Carnival. Provincetown is a very cute area with beauitful beaches.

Points of interest

Harding Beach
This beach has easy access, but it costs $20 per car. It wasn't the best or most beautiful beach I have been to, but we enjoyed ourselves. It got very crowded mid-day.


We stopped in Carmine's for coffee as we strolled Main Street in downtown Chatham. The coffee was great!
Mayflower Cafe
We asked our parking lot attendant for a restaurant recommendation, and she recommended the Mayflower Cafe. It was delicious!
Chatham Pier Fish Market
Chatham Pier Fish Market
This is hole in the wall fish market with the best fish and chips I have probably ever had. They are a take out only place, but there are some beautiful views and seals tend to hang out by the pier.
Mom & Pops Burgers
We got take out from this burger place and took it to the beach with us. It was very yummy! Highly recommend!
Swan River
The rehearsal dinner was hosted at Swan River. The food was great, the view was beautiful, and we had a great time here.
