In 1620, the Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower and made their first landing in the New World in Provincetown Harbor. The Pilgrims stayed in Provincetown for five weeks, where they created and signed the Mayflower Compact. They then continued on to their ultimate destination of Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Almost three-quarters of Provincetown …
... parking fine.
Movie Drive In - with authentic MONO speakers and popcorn with liquid butter. Ruth and James did camping.
Long dreary drive to Falmouth and then great cycle ride and home for a lovely sunset.
Off to Nantucket ...
What a fantastic day. Set off early - some borderline misery from the junior members- to drive to Provincetown on the northern most tip of Cape Cod. A trendy arty rainbows type of place. Our main aim to go whale watching on the Dolphin Fleet.
Got on the 1000 and did our customary Titanic shot and set off. The whole thing was done so well. The boat was not too crowded, the marine biologist on board did a brilliant show and tell about whales circulating a tooth with baleen ...
... for $7 but to get out to the lighthouse, the furtherest point from where the ferry comes in, it would take numerous bus stops and multiple changes of bus. I decided to take the narrated bus trip out to the Gay Heads Cliffs and Lighthouse. Steve was not keen to do this so he stayed in the main town of Oak Bluffs. The bus took me through each of the six villages on the island. The most historic of these is Edgartown. The buildings in Main Street in Edgartown all have to ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center
Jan and Charlie are warm, engaging and gracious hosts. You feel like you are staying with friends that you have not seen in a while. Whether it was Jan's delicious daily breakfasts, fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, a complimentary glass of wine near dinner or a special nightcap later in the evening, I always felt like a valued visitor.
The Inn is very clean and well maintained. We especially took advantage of lounging in the living room to peruse the local restaurant menus and attraction pamphlets they have thoughtfully made available. Upon our arrival, Charlie gave us a brief history of the Inn and the Sandwich area and provided us a map of the area with his recommendations on sites to see and things to do. Jan shared her love of the area and their personal history that brought them to the point of owning and operating this lovely B&B where they also reside.
My only caution would be that the back staircase leading to our room and others is steep and narrow and could be a bit challenging for some. If this is a concern, I recommend you ask about the other fine rooms that are more easily accessed.
