I am traveling with my sister and another girlfriend (we are all in our late 50's but fit) to the Cape July 11th and I'm in a quandry about where to stay (near or in which of the towns). As we will be driving from western NYS I'm thinking midway on the Cape might be a good choice and allow flexibility.
We plan to do a lot of walking through shops - lots of shops, walk along the ocean, perhaps rent bikes and explore and spend some time at the beach (under cover). We want to travel to Provincetown and the National Seashore.
We will stay at either a weekly rental (cottage) or condo complex (we want a kitchen available). We want to be near the ocean/decent beach (walking distance). I'm not sure which of the two concepts above would work out best for us. In one way I'm thinking that the condo complex on the ocean or very near the ocean might serve us better....????
The town we stay in needs to be large enough for shopping quaint shops and have breakfast/dinner options.
We are thinking about Dennisport, Chatham, or Harwich Port. Now I'm wondering if I should also include Orleans or Wellfleet in the mix. Anyone have thoughts on any of these mentioned spots or other thoughts that we might consider?
I'd be interested in anyone's thoughts before I decide on a location.
Thanks in advance for your help.
