Wellfleet

Wellfleet ©
Wellfleet is a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, United States, and is located halfway between the "tip" and "elbow" of Cape Cod. On the 31st (Sun), get your bearings at Salt Pond Visitor Center, then learn about winemaking at Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod, and then kick back and relax at Cape Cod National Seashore. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Coast Guard Beach, then contemplate the long history of Captain Penniman House, and then kick back and relax at Nauset Beach.

Plan my Wellfleet trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Athens to Wellfleet is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of shuttle, flight, and bus. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. While traveling from Athens, expect much colder days and a bit cooler nights in Wellfleet, ranging from highs of 41°F to lows of 30°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can drive to Falmouth.
