My boyfriend and I would like to take a trip to Provincetown, Massachusetts, in mid-May as a long weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of Boston. I'd like to spend between $500 and $700 for the trip, and this will be our first trip to the Cape.
Here's the tentative plan: Take the ferry out on a Friday morning, check into a hotel or B&B, and then explore the town until Monday afternoon, when we'd take the ferry back.
My questions for the hivemind:
- Should we shell out for fancy accommodations? Right now, I'm looking at the Watership Inn (as recommended on AskMe) and the Carpe Diem Guesthouse and Spa (because I can get gift certificates for 20 percent off).
- What should we do in P-town? The boyfriend is an avid naturalist, so birdwatching and bug-hunting would be right up his alley. I like books and taking photos, so send me to the cute bookstores and vistas. Any can't-miss restaurants? Spots for the New Englandest of souvenirs?
- Should we rent a car? We'd prefer not to have to worry about driving and parking, but maybe the area calls for it.
Thanks so much for your suggestions!
