With secluded beaches, romantic inns, and top-quality restaurants there is nothing better than a romantic getaway in Provincetown. This Valentine’s Day we will explore all the things two lovers can do during a romantic getaway in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
Take a Romantic Stroll on the Beach
What’s more romantic than a stroll along a secluded beach? Provincetown is home to a portion of the nearly 45,000 acres of the protected Cape Cod National Seashore. Taking a long stroll along one of the many beaches in Provincetown is sure to make sparks fly.
Race Point Beach
With miles upon miles of luxurious, soft sand Race Point Beach is one of Provincetown’s premier beaches. Take a stroll at sunset to experience one of the most breathtaking views you’ll ever see. If you are visiting in the spring you may even catch a few whales breaching in the distance.
About two miles off the beach lies the romantic Race Point Light. Built-in 1816, this gorgeous lighthouse just adds to the beauty of the beach. If you’re lucky and visiting from May to November, you can even book a night in the lighthouse.
Herring Cove Beach,
If you aren’t able to find parking at Herring Cove Beach, head over to Herring Cove Beach which offers the most parking of any beach located in Provincetown. The beach is equally as beautiful as Race Point Beach and offers some amenities if you are looking to spend a whole day there instead of just taking a stroll.
