Where to Propose in Cape Cod
Cape Cod, a beautiful coastal area in eastern Massachusetts known for its lovely coastline, charming towns and idyllic accommodations, is a perfect place to plan a proposal in the spring and summer months. Reserve a room at a romantic B&B, such as the Cranberry Inn in Chatham, put some bubbly on ice and find the right moment to pop the question.
The cape is actually divided into four areas — Upper Cape, Mid Cape, Lower Cape and Outer Cape — and composed of 15 separate but nearby towns. The Cape Cod Travel Guide says, “Cape Cod’s 15 towns are not unlike siblings: metaphorical brothers and sisters, sharing some qualities, yet remaining refreshingly different.” Here are some of the best places to propose in Cape Cod.
Dancing in the Moonlight
Step back in time by spending a beautiful summer evening listening to the Chatham Band play a free Friday night concert in Kate Gould Park. The concerts have been a Cape Cod tradition since the late 1940s, and they are scheduled every Friday at 8 p.m. from June 28 to August 30. Pack a gourmet picnic dinner, bring a blanket and dance with your sweetheart under the stars. During a slow song, draw her close and propose with a stunning diamond engagement ring.
Hit the Trail
If you’re not sure where to propose in Cape Cod, look no further than the great outdoors. Cape Cod has miles of trails designed just for cycling. Rent bikes from a local shop, pick your favorite trail and hit the road, biking leisurely along the coastline, through lush wooded areas or through picturesque towns. Stop for a break at a scenic lookout point and ask her to be your wife.
Start your evening at Pisces, an intimate and romantic restaurant, for an early dinner of fresh local seafood or rib-eye steak (save room for the dessert wine and the Pisces toasted almond joy sundae). After dinner, head out to see an unforgettable a capella concert from the group Hyannis Sound (formed each summer by a group of some of the most talented college a capella singers in the country). Once you get back to your room after a wonderful evening and it’s just the two of you again, propose with a gorgeous diamond engagement ring and pop the champagne.
