You know those vacations that are so perfect and so relaxing that even weeks afterward — when you’re sitting at your desk at work — all you dream about is, “When will I return?” Well, I’m recently back from Provincetown and I’m already planning my next trip. Provincetown — P-town for short — is at the very tip of Cape Cod. Originally a fishing town, it’s since become a charming haven filled with quaint shingled cottages, beautiful beaches and lovely little shops.

The mode of transportation is bikes — I especially loved the ride to Race Point Beach, while Herring Cove Beach is a bit closer. And the food? New England’s finest seafood is everywhere you turn! Victor’s shrimp and oysters, the Cod Bánh Mì at Canteen and the Lobster Roll at Mac’s were among my favorites.

Then, because you can’t exist on seafood alone, there’s every kind of baked good at Relish. I love strolling down Commercial Street — sometimes the people-watching is just as good as all the shops and ice cream stores. And what I noticed right away about P-town — people say ‘Hi’ on the street. I’m definitely looking forward to my next P-town ‘hello.’
