The tip at the end of the Cape is a wonderful spot to enjoy. You always see the lighthouse at night and then visiting during the day is a treat. So many views to enjoy and now the seals can be seen in the water...More

After the hustle and bustle of Commercial Street, the $15 RT boat shuttle to Long Point was a welcome, peaceful distraction. The very tip of Massachusetts is lined with numerous rocks so wear the right shoes! We enjoyed seeing seals pop their heads up ten...More

Several miles to walk around point, over causeway or take the Long Point shuttle to cut off lots of time. $10-$15- watch the tides if you take the causeway, high tide washes over in two locations and you could be in trouble. Great walk if...More

I knew to plan a hike at low tide but I did not anticipate construction at the west end of Bradfort St., and no parking to be found. It is a lovely spot and would have been quite an excursion but we could find nowhere...More

Well, we walked through the breakwater with our 7 yr old which was quite a walk (more than 1 hour) to the light house. You can get a wrecked ship on the way for some good clicks. Half of the walk is on rocks &...More
