Wellfleet Drive-In - Top 10 "Retro" Escapes

Wellfleet Drive InTravel+Leisure Magazine just posted their America's Top 10 Retro Escapes for 2009. The Wellfleet Drive-In theater made the 'cut' as one of the most fun escapes. The drive-in opened in 1957 (over 50 years ago!) and has pretty well remained as it was since then. Be sure to check out the slideshow and see all 10 of the retro escapes.

I remember taking my family to the drive-in movies in the mid-1980's when we first came to the Cape on vacation. We had a pop-up camper and stayed at Maurice's Campground, practically across Route 6 from the drive-in. The fact that our pop-up leaked when it rained ultimately forced us to rent homes when we came out. We rented homes for about 10 years. Who knew that those rentals would lead us to buy and then move to Eastham?
