Things to do

Discover Wellfleet through the centuries

The Wellfleet Historical Museum is the headquarters of the dynamic Historical Society. This fascinating collection encompasses artifacts and memorabilia from over 350 years, tracing a link from the town’s simple origins as a whaling community, through the fishing and shipping industries that transformed its fortunes during the 18th century, to the early days of tourism and its rapid growth throughout the 20th century. The museum is open from June to mid-October, Tuesday through Saturday, and admission is free—hours of operation vary, so check before you set out. It’s an easy stroll from downtown Wellfleet vacation rentals.

Activities

Wellfleet—a cultural showcase

Thanks to its unique location sandwiched between the ocean and the bay, Wellfleet is bursting with tempting beaches. But there’s a lot more to discover in this lively community. The Wellfleet Historical Society organizes walking tours, talks, and special family events throughout the year, designed to introduce visitors young and old to its rich heritage.

Plays and live opera transmissions are on offer at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, while the program of Wellfleet Preservation Hall includes movie screenings, concerts, and contemporary dance.

Weather

Turning up the heat in Wellfleet

The temperate climate of Cape Cod is one of the reasons for the enduring popularity of its summer resorts. City-dwellers look forward to escaping the humidity and breathing in the fresh air, while long, sunny days and cool evenings are perfectly suited to chilled-out weekend breaks. Demand for Wellfleet vacation rentals on the beach remains constant through early fall, as the cape’s famous Indian summers extend the bathing season well into October.
