Shoulder Season On Cape Cod

Your time to enjoy a refreshing visit to Cape Cod sails into port in early September and lasts through October. All aboard the shoulder season! Fall is a great time to be spontaneous and book a stay at a less crowded, exceptionally beautiful, salt sprayed and sandy, all-to-yourself Cape experience. Get a table at that reputed restaurant, spread out your beach gear, or play a game of golf – all without the usual peak season crowds.

Not only are the beaches still warm and uncrowded, but locals get busy with an eventful festival season celebrating the local bounty of shellfish and fishing. Wellfleet Oyster Fest, Falmouth Striper Fest, Yarmouth Seaside Festival and Bourne Cape Cod Canal Days are just a few of the many exciting outdoor events to keep things hopping.

If eating and shopping your way through an all-day outdoor venue isn’t your style, there’s plenty of culture to go around as well. Live music, guided walks, art galleries, historical sites and museums can be found on most days from stem to stern across the Cape.
