Rainy day? Kids need an activity? Arcade, Mini Golf, Pizza. I worked there one summer. Ice cream silo failure - no depth perception - the soft serve kept falling over. Landed in Mini-golf handing out golf clubs. Highlight: Terry Bradshaw came up to the booth with his son and asked, "Do you know who I am?" Yup. I heard it first.

Sightseeing
Eastham is classic Old Cape Cod. You can navigate the backroads and be oblivious to the crowds on Rte 6. It's quiet and peaceful on the Bayside beaches but if you like a crowd and people watching, make sure you go over to the Oceanside. The Visitor's Center on Rte 6 will give you a history of this magical peninsula. Walking trails will introduce you to many of the local flora and fauna. The bike trail, with an entrance right in the neighborhood - almost at the end of Ireland Way (on the left), is perfect for capturing this part of the cape. Slow down or hop off your bike to swim in Depot Pond (watch for the tiny trail right off the path). Bike into Orleans and visit The Chocolate Sparrow for the best handmade candies, chocolates, coffee, and chai lattes anywhere. Head towards Wellfleet and end your trek at the Boulangerie where you'll taste mouth-watering French pastries. Or use the bike path as your walking/running trail. Dogs are welcome, on-leash. If you head right, you'll come out behind the house and see if across the marsh. This way leads to Orleans. Go left and head to Arnold's for fried clams, chowda, lobsters and Wellfleet. Arnold's had been there since I was a kid and it's a local favorite.
Shops and food. Local color, adventure, sand dunes for climbing, whale watching, fishing charters.

1 mile walk from the house. This beach is so quiet, you'll wonder how you ever managed anything else. Low tide-perfect for walking, tidal pool play. High tide - fun currents. Launch kayaks here and paddle through the Black Fish Creek (see map). Make sure there's enough water in the creek (don't go at low tide) and that it's not so high that you can't get under the bridge on Bridge Rd. Time your trips around tides accordingly. There's a strange phenomenon that happens when the tide is shifting and it's on the way in. Pay attention to other beachgoers and you'll probably see someone else taking advantage. There is a strong current in the inner waterway. If you jump into the water on the left, it will quickly carry you down along the beach to the right while you float on your back. It's pretty fun. Hard to describe but check it out about an hour before high tide.

Coffee hound? Chocolate freak? This is your store. They make candy in-house - a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory experience. If you've never tried Penuche fudge, now's your chance to sample this Boston phenom. Think browned butter in a solid form. Grab a napkin, you'll be drooling. Try all of their flavors. Fudge, turtles, bark, chocolate covered cranberries and homemade marshmallows, etc ... All handmade. All to die for. They also offer yummy soups, sandwiches, ice cream and free WiFi. Local favorite.

I'll admit I have a sweet tooth and that I have to get a donut from Hole in One every time I'm up at the cape. If you like donuts, you're going to be happy you found this place. The line is out the door every morning... for a reason. And it's the locals in line.

Want to meet some of the locals? Go hang at the baaah. You'll catch an earful of those Baaastin accents while you knock a few back. Look for my brother's license plate hanging amongst their collection which covers the ceiling and walls. Surfs Up. I happen to love the Portugues Soup - Kale, potatoes, beans and Chorizo. I mean... All the food is good but that's my go to.

I grew up next to the owner. Her grandmother taught me to crochet. Tell Janet Donna says "hi!". They'll cook up a lobster feast to go. Fresh, local, delicious. Bring it home, to the beach or eat out on the picnic tables. (I recommend the beach.)

Flash back to the 50's when people clamored into cars and went to a big lot to watch a movie together. This is a real drive in! There is also an indoor cinema and on the weekends, a flea market.
