Romantic Getaways in Cape Cod

romantic getaways in cape codRomantic getaways in Cape Cod are an ideal way to escape the craziness of life and reconnect with loved ones. When you stay in a vacation rental for your romantic getaway, you can enjoy the privacy of a home away from home while keeping your costs down. Spend the night in a comfortable bed, and sleep in as long as you want without a harsh alarm waking you up. Sip some coffee in the comfortable living room as you plan the events of your upcoming day.

There many activities you can take part of during your romantic getaway in Cape Cod. You are surrounded by water at your vacation rental so you can walk along the edges of beautiful ponds, swim in the gentle waters of the bay, or dip your toes in the Atlantic Ocean. Stroll along the beach with your loved one, and collect rocks and shells or go windsurfing and kayaking. If you and your loved one enjoy learning new things and sharing new experiences, you might want to catch a cruise on Oceanquest. Embarking from Barnstable or Provincetown, the cruise takes you out for some whale watching between the months of May and October.

The water isn't the only outdoor place to go during your romantic getaway in Cape Cod. The beautiful area is perfect for bicycle riding and hiking. Stroll through scenic villages or check out the local flora and fauna and look for foxes and deer as you hike on the trails such as The Great Island Trail. This six-to-eight-mile hike takes you right along the edges of an historic whalers rendezvous. Other places to see for romantic getaways in Cape Cod include marsh lands and cranberry bogs. If you'd rather ride than walk, drive over to Hyannis, one of the Cape's major towns, and take a train ride through the cranberry bogs to Sandwich Village and back again to Hyannis.

Romantic getaways in Cape Cod are even better when topped off with special food. You can stroll down the wharf and grab a quick bite at a snack shack, or you could celebrate your love for each other in a formal restaurant. Cape Cod is known for its seafood. If you enjoy cooking, you might want to pick up a few items from the local market before heading back to your vacation rental where you can have a barbecue on your deck as you watch the sunset.
