First, you all need to know I love this place so much, we had a discussion about whether I should even tell people about it.... We love to go out here, especially in the off season. On season it is accessed by people in properly equipped vehicles with one of the limited permits, so we really do stay away. We... 更多
I drove all the way out there to find a lighthouse and just found a house. I would say skip it except for the beautiful drive through lovely forests to get there. I've not seen such beauty in a very long time. Just if you are only going for a lighthouse, it's just a house. And you cannot go into... 更多
This place does require a permit to park (from the Park Service). However, it does offer expansive beaches with very few people on them. We always enjoy spending an afternoon walking down this lovely part of Massachusetts.
If you go in summer, as the hundreds of parking places attest to, the place is undoubtedly filled to the gills with beach goers. However, off-season, you practically have the entire beach front to yourselves. Walk down from the visitor's center along the bike path, and then along the beach. Invigorating!

We stopped at the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage and visited with the couple, among many, who volunteer to look after the area. The love and dedication they showed was... 更多
Didn't have time to hike out to it, but will go back in the fall for some sunrise - sunset pictures. First time there. just amazing scenery!
I surprised my girlfriend with this short trip to Race Point. We found it a beautiful spot and had a wonderful time with the amazing hosts/housekeepers Susan and Jack. Also with us were at this weekend Nan and Patty. Race Point is a Lighthouse with a Keepershouse with several rooms, a kitchen and living room to share. It's located at... 更多
Thanks, David. Come back and visit us again! 更多
