New England-bound!

This weekend, S and I will be starting our trek north to CT, Cape Cod, and Martha's Vineyard. Since CT is my home state and most of my family still lives there, we also have two weddings to attend during our trip and lots of people to see.

Since most people we know will be working during the week, S and I decided to take a few days to explore Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard. Cape Cod and the Islands is one of my all-time favorite places and S has never been, so I am super excited to show him around!

Our Cape Cod itinerary looks a little something like this:

Monday:

Depart my parents' house to get an early start up to our first stop, Hyannis.

We can't check into the Inn that we're staying at until about 3pm so I figured that would give us plenty of time to walk around Main St. and the marina and have lunch. 

I'd love to take S to the British Beer Company, I think he'd love it!
Or Baxter's Fish N Chips is always an option, right on the marina.


 Hyannis also has some beautiful beaches and the cutest, most quaint little New England-esque neighborhoods. I also wouldn't mind to pay a little visit to the Kennedy Compound.

Once we check into Inn, I would love to explore a little more and show S around Chatham. There's a quaint little downtown area, a beautiful lighthouse, and I'm sure we could find a great place to have a delicious dinner.

South Beach, Chatham (I'd LOVE to walk that beach!)

On Tuesday, we will be heading up to Provincetown aka P-town. I just love how Cape Cod is the epitome of New England. Weathered wood siding, crushed clam shells, lighthouses, sailboats and of course the Atlantic.




Maybe if we're lucky, we'll see a few drag queens.. Actually I don't doubt one single bit that we'll see drag queens haha.



Before we head back from P-town, I'm hoping we'll get to do a tour of the dunes as well. Another must-see when you are on the Cape.



Y'all just don't understand how excited I am for this trip. It's going to be amazing!

I feel so blessed to be able to share this with Shaun, especially since there is a pretty good prospect that we will be making a big move in the Spring ;)

Stay tuned for my post about Martha's Vineyard tomorrow!

I was born in Hyannis, but I haven't been there since I was old enough to remember. Love this post because now I know a few places I need to check out when I finally do visit again. Have a great trip!
