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

If you are up for a walk, this is just about right. The walkway is well fortified and given the changeable weather on any particular day, it may be just right.

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

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

There are many lighthouses in the area but this one grabbed my attention. Basic. A lot like what you thought lighthouses looked like when I was a child. Good take in.
