|Cape Cod is an ideal vacation spot -- whatever time of year you visit. In addition to its eternally popular summer season, more and more visitors are discovering the pleasures of the Capeís off-season. Credit this to the regionís rich history, spectacular natural beauty, diverse arts communities, and cultural events.
The Capeís moderate climate (compared to the mainland) and closeness to some of the East Coastís major cities also play an important role in Cape Codís popularity as a year-round getaway destination.
High Season - Memorial Day through Labor Day (sometimes extending to Columbus Day) is high season on Cape Cod. You can expect great beach weather and all the makings of a quintessential summer getaway. Do however, also expect crowds and prices to be high as well.
Shoulder Season - Spring and fall are great seasons to visit the Cape -- with lower rates at area hotels, inns, and restaurants. Youíll experience ideal weather for many outdoor activities including bicycling, nature hikes, kayaking, fishing and bird watching. In addition, these are perfect seasons to experience the Capeís historical attractions, events, art galleries, shops and boutiques.
Low Season - The holiday season is a magical time to visit Cape Cod -- with seaside holiday festivities in many of the towns. Although many shops, restaurants and hotels close during the winter, many stay open and offer the perfect backdrop for a romantic or relaxing getaway (with rates at half of peak season).
