Moby Dick’s Restaurant
3225 Rte. 6, Wellfleet
Just-caught seafood is Cape Cod’s claim to fame and if you’re only here for a few days, having a turkey sandwich for lunch just doesn’t feel right. Moby Dick’s, which has been family-operated since the 80’s, has the quaintness of a clam shack and the menu of a full-on restaurant, meaning that you can order an oyster platter, steamed lobster, and grilled fish in addition to the basics like chowder and fried clams. It’s also one of the few spots around with a respectable gluten-free offering.
Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre Flea Market
51 State Hwy., Rte. 6, Wellfleet
During the summer season, the Wellfleet Drive-In Theater grounds become a sort of meeting spot for the entire community. At night, it functions as an old school drive-in theater and during the day plays host to an adorable kids playground and miniature golf course. On the weekends, the space morphs into a sprawling flea market with dozens of stalls devoted to everything from kitschy Cape Cod memorabilia to one-of-a-kind antiques.
