A Trip to Plymouth Long Beach in Plymouth, Mass.

Plymouth Long Beach in Plymouth, Mass., is really a beautiful coastal spot, just a few miles south on Route 3A from the downtown. We recently visited after 6 p.m. on a weekend and there was no parking fee. The walk was peaceful — with fewer crowds — and the sunset spectacular. We also enjoyed the refreshing feel of the ocean, albeit only up to our knees as the water temp seemed a bit chilly. To cap off this relaxing and affordable experience, we ate at Bert’s Landing overlooking the beach. The twin lobster special for $26.95 was a bargain (always subject to change due to market value) and the water views the stuff that makes summer vacation so special. After dining at Bert’s Landing, we traveled back to the downtown waterfront area for some delicious homemade ice cream at Peaceful Meadows. The overall relaxing summer experience was kind of like visiting Cape Cod without having to go over one of the bridges!

Like any major vacation destination, Plymouth can get expensive, but as you can see it doesn’t have to be!
