    We love to drive along the national seashore at 5:30 or 6am. It is quiet and the views are spectacular. Race Point is a great place to end.  more »

    The ORV trails at Race Point Beach take you within feet of this classic lighthouse. You can see it when you first get on the ORV trail from the parking lot, and it gets closer and closer as you drive out. Makes for some great sunset pics from the beach. Never actually been inside it, we just admire each day as we drive by.

    Nice walk either by the beach or sand dunes. Great little lighthouse to walk too.

    Loved this! We walked on a trail from the bike path (not down the beach) as recommended by the visitors center and it was gorgeous!! We didn't go all the way to the lighthouse but close enough for great views of it in such a lovely landscape! Was about 2.5 to 3 miles round trip hike. My favorite thing we did during our day in Provincetown I highly recommend.

    One of the best places to visit while in Provincetown to get away from cheap souvernirs and the tourist crowds in town

    Requires permitted off road vehicle to access or a long treck through the dunes. No electricity or cell phone service. Lighthouse is kept by a non profit organization in which volunteers stay in the cottage.
