Escape on the Cape: Seashore and Sunsets
Provincetown epitomizes Cape Cod’s allure, with its picturesque downtown, world-class restaurants, captivating ocean views, and natural beauty in all directions. Whether it’s a honeymoon or a quiet weekend on the Cape for two, Provincetown is the perfect place for your romantic getaway.
The outer Cape, where Provincetown sits, is defined by the Cape Cod National Seashore. Encompassing 68 square miles and running from midway up the Cape right up to the edge of Provincetown, you’ll find rolling dunes, beaches that seem to stretch on forever, and trails that guide you throughout the park. Start at Race Point Beach, just a few miles from downtown Provincetown. During the slower months on the Cape between November and April, you’ll likely have the beach to yourselves, making it extra special. Take a long stroll along the sand, plan a picnic near one of the iconic lighthouses, and catch a spectacular sunset as it paints the sky over the Atlantic’s crashing waves.
Dinner Along the Water, Live Music, and a Stroll Through Downtown
After spending the day exploring the nearby beaches, begin your memorable evening together at one of the several award-winning restaurants within walking distance of the Provincetown Hotel. Make your way down to Commercial St, which traces the water’s edge through town, and choose among places like Mews, a local stalwart that has been in business for over five decades. They have specialty cocktails and fine dining to match the pedigree of their oceanfront views. Another longtime local favorite, Ross’ Grill, has a European bistro feel and over 65 varietals on their extensive wine list. Provincetown is famous for its freshly-caught seafood, so split a plate of oysters or a lobster, savoring every bite and indulging all of your senses.
After dinner, stroll a few blocks over to the Club, where you can catch free live music seven nights a week. From soulful duets to jazz combos, enjoy the music together as you wind down the evening, all with a backdrop of gorgeous bay views. Before heading back to the Provincetown Hotel, walk along the moonlit harbor, hand-in-hand, as romantic of a setting as you’ll ever find.
