With the Crowds Gone, Ptown’s Charm is on Full Display
Across New England, fall weather sparks the desire to hit the road with that special someone and it should be said that few destinations match the natural beauty and romance of Provincetown. While the Brass Key may be closed for the season, our sister property the Crowne Pointe Inn and Spa is open and ready to cater to all your romantic desires. The charm of quaint streets, brilliant foliage and miles of uncrowded beaches have been attracting visitors and locals to this end of the Cape during the “off season” for a long, long time. Year in and year out, the recipe for perfect romantic fall getaways remains the same in my book; take a long walk on a blustery day, enjoy a intimate dining experience and wind up in front of a cozy warm fireplace. Whether your seeking outdoor activities or pure relaxation here are some of my favorite fall getaway activities in Provincetown;
Beech Forest Trail – Cape Cod National Seashore: This short mile long trail takes you through the heart of Provincetown’s National Seashore forest skirting Beech Forest Pond which, on a windless fall day, perfectly mirrors the fall foliage encroaching on its banks. It is conveniently accessed on 36 Race Point Road right off rout 6 and offers ample amounts of sightseeing opportunities.
The 90 Minute Couples Massage – Shui Spa: Enjoy the Couple’s Sanctuary for a full hour and a half at the well-appointed and ever attentive Shui Spa. Experience stress relief, improved circulation and relaxation with your significant other during a synchronized massage session using the finest Kiehl’s products.
Romantic Dinner for Two at the Pointe: The restaurant at the Crowne Pointe Inn offers a menu and location well suited to romantic evenings. Maybe it’s their reputation for excellent cuisine and service… you should try the Poached Lobster and Chive Gnocchi! Or, perhaps it’s the ambiance in the dining room combined with views of the Pilgrim Monument lit up in the nights sky.
Spend your evening by the fire at the Crowne Pointe Inn and Spa: Elegant accommodations, may of which offer Jacuzzi soaking tubs and fireplaces, make the Crowne Pointe the perfect place to call home for the night. You can stand atop the widows walk deck and take in great views of Provincetown and then call for room service while you enjoy lounging fireside. Plan on staying an extra night…you may never want to leave!
