Dive into Cape Cod’s Second Summer
COME EXPLORE CAPE COD’S SECOND SUMMER
Enjoy beautiful cooler weather with milder temps – but without the crowds. Cape Cod’s shoulder season should not be missed, with its endless shimmering ocean views contrasting against the season’s vibrant rich fall foliage and vermillion-saturated cranberry bogs. Escape the long lines and enjoy the Cape’s outdoor activities, along with some solitude.
QUITE POSSIBLY THE BEST TIME OF YEAR
From a fresh lobster dinner to succulent oysters, enjoy dining al fresco on outdoor decks and patios well into the season. There is nothing quite like a beach day in autumn, where the beaches are less crowded and the ocean temps remain warm into September. As fall progresses with cooler days, bundle up for a refreshing walk along the seashore. Spend afternoons kayaking, canoeing or paddle-boarding our waters, chartering a fishing boat and engaging in some recreational fishing, going on a whale watch excursion, or sailing off into some of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen. Some of the locals consider this the best time of year on the Cape!
MANY NATURE TRAILS TO EXPLORE
The Cape is known for its natural habitat of woods and salt marshes. Have Cape Cod’s Rail Trail all to yourself, and bike over 100 miles of paved paths from Dennis to Wellfleet, while seeing some fantastic foliage. Several fall festivals and Farmers Markets are sure not to be missed, with art, live music, or tasting the best craft beer. Visit one of our several local breweries and vineyards for a fresh taste of Cape Cod. Enjoy reduced rates and easy-to-book tee times at our many public golf courses. And be sure to check out our many art, nature and historical museums – remember, the Pilgrims landed here first before proceeding to Plymouth.
