I was given a review copy of this beautiful ebook, Wellfleet: An Insider’s Guide to Cape Cod’s Trendiest Town by the author, Alexandra Grabbe and I wanted to share it with my readers.

I’ve driven through Wellfleet and must admit I didn’t understand the treasures to be found there. Now that I have Grabbe’s guide, I will definitely go back and this time I will stop. Grabbe is an innkeeper in this beautiful Cape Cod town and her personal experience creates the perfect guidebook. I loved the thoughtfully written history of the town and a resident’s view of the festivals and events, as well as the month-by-month guide of what to expect. Where the book really shines though is in the detailed descriptions of the beaches, ponds, restaurants and shops. There are all sorts of fun places to go, including a flea market, yoga classes, seal watching, paragliding and mushroom-picking – things I don’t remember reading about in the guides I used when I visted the Cape. Wellfleet looks and sounds like such a fun place to visit that I really am planning to return.

Here are the insider’s secrets that will make your stay the best it can be. I really appreciated the lists of things to do at the beach, with or without kids. The restaurant reviews are extremely personal and share details of the meals Grabbe enjoyed at each location. The photographs are stunning and after years of relying on Frommer’s and Fodor’s guides, I am shocked by what a difference they make. Instead of having that moment where you drive up to a restaurant and realize it might not be the place for you, you can see photos ahead of time which, coupled with the detailed descriptions of the destinations, really help you make an educated decision about where you want to spend your time and your money.

If you are planning a trip to the Cape, this is exactly the guide you want.
