Take a Walk on the Beach
Situated along the shore of the Nantucket Sound, Harwich has more than a dozen beaches. Bank Street Beach is one of the more popular beaches. The warm, calm waters of the Sound are perfect for swimming; you can sit in the sand and watch boats pass by. You can also walk along the beach and enjoy nature and the sand dunes. During the off-season, dogs are allowed on the beach. Permits are required for parking and you can get parking permits at Town Hall; they cost $20 a day.
Visit a Lavender Farm
Cape Cod Lavender Farm is located just outside of downtown Harwich. The family-owned farm is located on 12 acres with more than 7,000 plants. Lavender season is during the summer and the flower is usually harvested in June and July, but the farm is open to visitors year-round. Their farm store sells everything from candles to bags of dried lavender, lotions, oils and lavender-infused foods and drinks. The farm is surrounded by more than 75 acres of woodland trails, so you can go for a hike after visiting. The Lavander Farm is definitely one of the best things to do in Cape Cod weekend!
Plan a Romantic Dinner
Harwich is known for its fresh fish and there are several restaurants in the area where you can order locally-caught seafood. Cape Sea Grille is one of these restaurants. The restaurant serves American cuisine using sustainable meats, fresh seafood and local ingredients. Experiencing a romantic dinner in Harwich should be on your list of romantic activities to do in in Cape Cod.
Reservations are required, as the restaurant has limited seating. It is located in an old 19th century sea captain’s home, just a few steps from Nantucket Sound. The inside of the home is decorated with fresh cut flowers, white linens and candles to create an intimate atmosphere.
