  1. Tour the Cape by train

Want a unique way to enjoy both a delicious meal and take in the beauty of the Cape?  Make a reservation on the Cape Cod Dinner Train!  This train ride will take you by many of the quaint Cape Cod villages, as well as offer breathtaking views of the setting sun.  Dinner is five-courses of seasonal, gourmet food served with a candle-lit background and soft music.  The ride is approximately three hours, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

  1. Plan a romantic picnic on the beach

Do you and your partner love the outdoors?  Plan a stroll and picnic on one of the many beautiful beaches and take advantage of the natural beauty that surrounds the Cape.  Pick up some canapes, wine and cheese from the Chatham Cheese Shop for a light dinner, or order a meal to-go from one of the many restaurants in the area, grab some beach chairs and towels, and head to Skaket Beach to watch the sunset over the Bay, or visit Coast Guard Beach in Eastham and enjoy the crashing wave and dunes of one of the most beautiful beaches in America.

  1. Wine and dine at Cape Cod’s best waterfront restaurants

For a more traditional evening, make a reservation 28 Atlantic at the Wequassett Resort in Orleans for an amazing five-star experience with your meal, or take in the ocean view at The Ocean House in Dennis and enjoy some of the best cocktails on the Cape with your dinner.  If you want something close by in Chatham, book a traditional New England Clam Bake at the Beach House at Chatham Bars Inn.  They can seat you on their beautiful outdoor patio so you can savor the wonderful night as well as some magnificent food.

  1. Tour the Cape Cod National Seashore

If you want to explore an area that is hard to get to, book a trip with Art’s Dune Tours in Provincetown.  As one of the only companies with a permit to drive through the dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore, this trip is sure to be memorable.  After a comfortable drive in one of their SUVs, they will set you up on the beach with a bonfire and clambake dinner.  Soak in the setting sun and all of its beauty!
