Wellfleet, Cape Cod
Wellfleet, Massachusetts is an old whaling port, a contemporary fishing village and a cultural haven as well. Its walkable streets are lined with art galleries representing artists and crafters of both local and national acclaim; bookstores and boutiques dwell within its historic residences.
The Wellfleet Harbor Actor’s Theatre shares harbor space with the town’s shellfishermen, and the town’s clock still strikes ship’s time. The town has long been recognized for its plentiful supply of shellfish, including the famous “Wellfleet Oyster.”
Nature-lovers and families will enjoy hiking the trails of the 1,000-acre Wellfleet Bay Sanctuary and visiting the dune-top site where Marconi dispatched the first transatlantic wireless message in 1903.
