easter in provincetown

We are arriving in Provincetown on Good Friday without any reservations. We would like to stay either in North Truro or Provincetown. Would like to view the beach. What is opened? Is Crows Nest open yet? Also for Easter, will many restaurants be open? How about the Lobster Pot? Any help from anyone be helpful. We are a party of 2.

A few suggestions for ya

Hotel: www.crownepointe.com

Dining: www.clemandursies.com



Lobster Pot opens first week of April so that's out. I'm not sure whether the Crows Nest is open. My parents stayed at Crowne Point and loved it.

I hope this helps you out, enjoy

Most restaurants aren't open yet... Don't think you'll have a problem with accommodations, though. More than a few guest houses to pick from. For dining: the Mews (excellent, upscale, expensive) or Fanizzi's (more mid-priced). Both are on the water with great views and friendly ambiance.

Provincetown is still pretty sleepy at this time of year. Not much open...even on weekends. Your best bet is to call around ahead of time as many innkeepers are on a reduced schedule and may not be available when you arrive. If you should decide to stay closer to Orleans, the "year-round" town on the outer cape, get back to me and I can give you lots of suggestions for fine dining, lodging and things to do.

How far is Orleans from Provincetown? Looking for a place to dine for Easter, seafood is our choice? Is Orleans on the water? Suggestions for motels/hotels?

Hi, Orleans is about 25-30 miles from P-Town, easy for a day trip, back and forth. We were in Provincetown over Christmas week, and even tho much was closed down, there were still restaurants, shops and galleries open.

For a list of open restaurants you may want to check out www.celebrateprovincetown.com.

MEWS is always excellent, my niece was in town and loved Fanizzi's. Bistro at Crowne Pointe is wonderful, but a little on the expensive side.

Bookseller, the thing about the cape is that every town is on the water! So yes, Orleans is on the water....but most of the lodging is not on the water. Let's see, Orleans Inn is on town cove, but it is also on the busy section of Rt. 6A+28 near the rotary but it does have a full service restaurant downstairs. Call them to see if they have availability.

The only other lodging near Orleans with ocean views that I know of, and can highly recommend, is the Fort Hill Bed and Breakfast about a mile from the rotary in Eastham overlooking Nauset Marsh and the Atlantic. I'm not sure if they have availability for this weekend. You should check out their web site for a telephone # and give them a call. You won't find any other lodging on the ocean side of the outer cape because the National Seashore has protected the land from development. Fort Hill is the only lodging in the Park that I know of.

As for dining, here are a few places to check out...I'm not sure which ones are open over the weekend but they are all year-round places so I assume they are all open.

Captain Linnell House-Orleans

Brewster Fish House-Brewster

Joe's at the Barley Neck Inn- E. Orleans

Mahoney's Atlantic Grill- Orleans

Beacon- Orleans

Wicked Oyster-Wellfleet

Land 'Ho- Orleans

Nauset Beach Club- Orleans

Abba- Orleans


Sir Crickets-Orleans (great fish and chips for take-out)

Finely JPs- Wellfleet

bookseller: Where'd you end up? Gorgeous, sunny, windy Easter weekend up here!

For the future: A nice option with water views: The Cove Motel and Resort in Orleans.
