You will not find another place on all of the East coast that will bring such joy, happiness and clam as this spot. Treat yourself and family to wonderful afternoon, or sunrise is amazing, and come to this place of wonder.

We tried to make our way down to the lighthouse from the beach and a major thunderstorm came out of nowhere, so we never got to make it all the way. Beautiful view.

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.
