Cape Cod in April Weather
If you’re planning on experiencing all the things to do in Cape Cod in April, you will need to dress for the weather. We recommend bringing both winter and spring clothes because you never know what the temperatures might be! In the beginning of April, temperatures are most likely going to be similar to winter. Late April, however, could bring in a little warm spring weather. These temperatures are not ideal for tourists looking to soak up some sun on the beach, so you will avoid the crowds that gather here in the summer!
3 of the Best Things to Do in Cape Cod in April
1. Go on a Hike
The cooler temperatures of April make it the perfect time to hike. Grab your gear and head to one of our favorite spots like Nickerson State Park to immerse yourself in nature. Here, you’ll find a network of hiking trails perfect to explore during April. The sand dunes and salt marshes of the coastline will retreat as you ascend into an oasis of lush hills and pine forests. One of our favorite places to explore is the Cliff Pond Trail. During the summer, many swim, fish, and boat around this pond, but it is also an ideal hiking trail whenever the weather permits. You’ll love venturing through the trees on this 2.8-mile trail!
2. Ride the Rail Trail
Not only is April weather good for hiking, it’s good for biking, too. Hopping on a bike is one of the best things to do in Cape Cod in April! Travel through pine forests, marshes, cranberry bogs, and many local spots as you pedal through the Rail Trail. Once an actual railway, the tracks have been paved over to create 25 miles of trail that runs through the cape. Use this as a place for leisurely walks or rent a bike to pedal through miles of nature.
3. Take a Tour
April is the perfect time to take a tour of Cape Cod. Whether you come every year or this is your first time, touring the Cape will give you a completely new perspective on the area. One of our favorite and most unique tours are Stick’n Rudder Aero Tours. Soar through the air high above the magnificent ocean in a Cessna Skyhawk or Waco YMF5 Biplane. You’ll see the beaches, ocean, wildlife, and more from up above. You’ve never seen the Cape like this before!
