Tune into our episode of “Eat Play Stay” on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, for an outdoor getaway just 70 minutes from Boston.

Good Vibes, Bad Martha 

Bad Martha’s Farmers Brewery is located on Falmouth and produces and cans their own beer onsite. “Get bad, do good” is one of their slogans that translates to doing good for others. This watering hole has a tap room, outside dining, live music and games, a fun place for families (and pets!) to hang out. Enjoy one of the many creative beers and hear the legend of the mermaid Bad Martha.

Leader of the Dunes

For visitors searching for a beautiful picture spot in Cape Cod they need to head on over to the “The Anthill” sand dunes of Province Lands. Art’s Dune Tours was established in 1946 and continues to entertain tourists with the history and beauty of Provincetown dunes and seashore. Tours are available for day and nighttime excursions and with over 4,000 acres of sand dunes, beaches and forest land you are sure to find the perfect picture that you are looking for!

ScottCakes

Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth? Head on over to ScottCakes! These pretty pink cupcakes have been a staple in Cape Cod since owner Scott Cunningham moved from New York to open his shop. These iconic cupcakes are enjoyed by many people along the Atlantic Coast.  

Lobster Pot 

Back in Provincetown (which is as far up the Cape one can go) this staple is located on Commercial Street. Lobster Pot is where you can find the classic lobster dish that you are seeking. Opened in 1979 this restaurant is seafood-oriented with lobster being the most popular dish. 

Bay Spirit Tours 

It’s a missed opportunity to visit Cape Cod and don’t get on the water. Bay Spirit Tours provides an hourlong tour that teaches you about haunted lighthouses, the Kennedy Compound and more, or you can opt to wind down with a gorgeous sunset cruise. Either way, this tour company is the way to go.

Taylor-Bray Farm

To find out about the history of Cape Cop head on over to Taylor-Bray Farm which dates back to the 1640s when settlers Richard and Ruth Taylor first built the home and sold it to the Bray brothers in 1896. The farm is open daily from dusk to dawn and you can enjoy a hike on the trail, visit the 1860s farmhouse or pet the farm animals. 

Captain Farris House

Captain Farris House is an estate built in 1845 that now serves as a bed and breakfast. A perfect place to go to exhale. The main building holds 10 bedrooms and the carriage house has two suites, along with a wraparound porch and a beautiful outdoor space with a gazebo. This is the place to be for a relaxing, peaceful day.
