Low tide on Great Island.

Photo Ops:

Whether you want a quick walk or a long hike, Great Island can’t be beat for natural beauty with a lot of variety. The trail brings you from forest to dune, with views so pretty you’ll have a hard time putting your camera down. Check the tides before you set out.

Atlantic White Cedar Swamp

Favorite Spots:

The Cape Cod National Seashore’s Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail goes beyond natural beauty, with an almost magical atmosphere that brings immediate peace. Stand still on the boardwalk and listen. In the center of town, Wellfleet Preservation Hall is a great place for all kinds of activities, from concerts to classes.

Mom & Pops:

Nestled in with the local post office and chamber of commerce and close to the bike trail, the South Wellfleet General Store has everything you need. For amazing artisanal bread and scrumptious pastries, visit nearby P.B. Boulangerie.

Don’t Miss!

Held in October, Wellfleet OysterFest is not only great fun; it also promotes the tradition of shellfishing. With entertainment, culinary events and games, OysterFest is probably best known for the highly competitive Shuck-Off.
