5 Reasons Why Fall is the Cape’s Secret Season

1. Great Weather for Exploring

If you consider yourself an adventurer, you’ll love visiting Cape Cod in the fall. Autumn is usually brisk, making it perfect for outdoor activities. Throw on a sweater and take a romantic walk on the beach with your sweetheart or go on a scenic hike. It’s a little too cold to swim in the ocean, but it is the perfect temperature to enjoy all your favorite things to do outside!

2. The Changing Leaves

Cape Cod is the perfect place to admire the beauty of changing leaves. The fall foliage here is an excellent addition to the already gorgeous landscape. Fiery shades of red and yellow contrast beautifully against the blue skies and classic New England architecture. Go on a scenic drive through town or opt to immerse yourself among the trees in a spot like Nickerson State Park.

3. Minimal Traffic

If you are visiting Cape Cod in the fall instead of the summer for the first time, you will be amazed at the incredible decrease in traffic. Everyone knows that the popular areas of the Cape get a little congested during the peak season. During autumn, you can get from place to place in no time at all! This gives you the opportunity to explore the entire peninsula.

4. Enjoy the Cape Without the Crowds

Because of the great weather and sunshine, Cape Cod has become a popular summer vacation destination. Although summer is an amazing season to visit during, it can get crowded. When you plan your trip during fall, you’ll find that the Cape is much quieter! Many restaurants are still open before they close for the winter, and you will rarely have to wait for a table.

5. Celebrate the Season at a Festival

The festivals that come to the Cape during the fall are the perfect way to celebrate the season. Spend the day or entire weekend at one of these unique events! From the Yarmouth Seaside Festival to the Annual Harwich Arts & Music Cranberry Festival, there is always something going on near Candleberry Inn.
