Located on the outer end of Cape Cod, the Wellfleet offers an abundance of quaint rural seaside character and charm. Bounded on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by Cape Cod Bay, 61% of the land area of Wellfleet is in the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. During the summer, the population swells to an estimated 17,000 persons who enjoy the town's miles of ocean and bay-side beaches; numerous beautiful, clear, spring-fed ponds; many fine art galleries, shops and restaurants; and the magnificent Wellfleet Harbor, which offers a constantly changing panorama of sail boats, motor yachts, sport fishing boats and trawlers.

Wellfleet is a diverse community with a 300 year-old nautical history. Its friendly town center provides pedestrians with an array of browsing, dining, picture-taking and sight-seeing opportunities within a relatively short walk. The town is home of the 1,000 acre Massachusetts Audubon Society Wildlife Sanctuary.

Some of Cape Cod's finest ocean surf-casting, fresh water pond, and Cape Cod Bay boat fishing are found in Wellfleet. The town is well-known for its plentiful supply of shellfish, including the famous "Wellfleet Oyster".

Wellfleet is now famous for the contemporary architecture of the homes built in recent decades. Many dwellings feature naturalized landscapes and weathered wood exteriors for minimizing upkeep. There is well water throughout the town, and not all roads are paved.
