3 of the Best Things to Do in Cape Cod in January

1. Visit a Museum

When you visit Cape Cod in January, you’ll find that many attractions are closed for the season due to low tourist volume. However, many museums stay open with special winter hours! One of our favorite museums that is open in the winter is the Cape Cod Museum of Art. Just 15 minutes away from Candleberry Inn, you’ll find gorgeous works created by New England artists. They are open Thursdays and Sundays during the winter with free admission Thursday nights! If you are planning to visit a museum, make sure to check their specific winter hours as some even close a month or two out of the year.

2. Bundle Up and Walk the Beach

There’s something about the ocean in the winter that will warm your spirits. Bundle up in a scarf and jacket, then walk along the waves at the Cape Cod National Seashore. With 40 miles of coastline to stroll, it is the perfect place to get refreshed by crisp ocean air. See seagulls roaming among the dunes as you walk through the sand. It may be chilly in January, but it is a gorgeous sight!

3. Indulge at a Restaurant

One of the best parts about visiting Cape Cod in January is that the crowds have died down. When you come to the Cape in the summer, you may run into long waits at restaurants, especially if you don’t have reservations. When you visit in the winter, you’ll find little to no wait times at all! Some restaurants are open year-round, others have special winter hours, and some close for the season. Just make sure to check before you go! Your innkeepers at Candleberry Inn are also very knowledgeable about the area and can give you suggestions on the best restaurants that are open.
