I am planning to surprise my wife with a trip to Cape Cod in mid-July to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. We have never been to the Cape before and I was wondering what the best town(s) would be to stay in. We are a younger couple who would enjoy a cozy downtown feel with shopping and restaurants, with a short distance to the beach. A place with crazy nightlife in not necessary, maybe just a nice area with biking or walking trails, or a place to grab a drink or ice cream cone after dinner.
I was considering Chatham, Brewster, Wellfleet, or Orleans based on information I was able to get online. Please help steer me in the right direction if somewhere else would be better. Thank you for your help!!!!!
