Get Out of Town! Six Fabulous Provincetown Hot Spots During Shoulder Season!
Our President’s Day Weekend was turning out to be a real bummer.
Lucy had school vacation, we had no plans and I was perilously close to spending three days on the couch watching reruns of “Girls” on HBO Max. (Worth a rewatch, by the way. SO good and Lena Dunham is a genius.)
Anyway, fate intervened!
My friend, Brian Patton, an extraordinary person AND piano player, paid an impromptu visit Friday night and mentioned he was going to be playing at Tin Pan Alley in Provincetown the next night and we should come down.
The forecast was grey and cold and we already blew our budget on a new couch, but I was already SICK of sitting on that new couch and, well, life is short.
So as soon as Brian left, I booked the French Country Suite at Land’s End Inn, this amazing hotel at the end of Commercial Street in Provincetown.
It’s quiet, has breathtaking views and is adults only, which is great for us. Lucy is 19 and she’s about as fond of screaming children in a hotel lobby as I am.
Plus, they serve breakfast AND happy hour AND there was a twin pullout couch so we all could be comfortable.

So here are my recommendations:
