Whether you are planning a honeymoon or a romantic getaway, Chatham is one of the most romantic destinations on the East Coast. The charming beach town is situated between Provincetown and the Cape Cod Bridges. Located on the southeastern most tip of Cape Cod, Chatham has all the New England charm and beachside landscape you’re looking for in a romantic Northeast vacation.
You can spend your days taking a stroll down the area’s pristine beaches, touring the historic Chatham lighthouse, or walking through the beach town’s quaint downtown area. There is no shortage of ways to celebrate your love and rekindle the flame in Chatham. Here are some romantic things to do in cape cod this weekend that are guaranteed to give you and your partner memories to last a lifetime.
Take a Walk Down the Beach
Chatham’s Lighthouse Beach is the ideal beach for an early morning stroll or a sunset walk. The waters off the shore of the beach are rough and the beach is not monitored by lifeguards, so it is often empty.
The beach is also the location of the Chatham Lighthouse. This lighthouse is in active use by the Coast Guard. Coast Guardsmen work at the lighthouse all hours of the day, making sure fishing boats can safely navigate the Chatham waters. The beach is also a popular location for seals and you will often see them gathering on the bar off the coast. Going to the beach is definitely one of the best romantic activities to do in Cape Cod!
Parking passes are required for the beach and cost $20 per day. You can purchase passes at kiosks in town.
Tour a Winery
Another one of the many romantic things to do in cape cod this weekend is to visit the Winery. There are several wineries on Cape Cod that you can visit, all just a few minutes’ drive from downtown Chatham. Crush Winery is a local winery just west of Chatham. The winery uses grapes from Northern California to create their unique blends. You can visit their winemaking facility Wednesday – Saturday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tastings cost $10 for six pours, and when time permits, they can give you a tour of the winery.
Be sure to ask for their specialty: a sample of their chocolate sauce made with their wines. You can also get their wines at many restaurants and stores in Chatham.
