The subfreezing temperatures that Old Man Winter brings are enough reason to hibernate at home until spring. But maybe you could appreciate the frigid weather better if you visit some attractions that are available in winter. Cape Cod may be a popular summer destination, but there are still interesting activities that you will find there for you and your family. Plus, if you don’t like the heavy summer crowds, you will get your quiet time better during the colder months.
Visit the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Besides getting awarded with a scenic drive to Cape Cod National Seashore, you will also have the best adventure of your life hiking along its nature trails. Find the Doane Rock deposited by a glacier thousands of years ago in the park. Just remember to dress warm for this one!
Rent a vacation house along Cape Cod Bay.
The beauty of the off-peak season is the low rental prices. If you don’t mind waking up to the beauty of the sea, then book a week with the family and just relax. Make sure to take the stairs directly leading down to the beach when going for a walk for the ultimate Cape-Cod experience you only see in movies.
Watch the sunset with the family.
Fewer tourists mean more peace and quiet as you walk along the beach with the family. Beaches that are stressfully busy in the summer become more inviting. Find a great beach in North Eastham like the Campground Beach and immerse yourselves with the enigmatic colors of the sky.
Visit the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory.
Open on weekdays, winter is the best time to sneak a peek at how these delicious Cape Cod kettle-cooked chips are made. Besides, tours are free and you get to learn something new.
Check-in to a bed and breakfast.
How about some B&B for some R&R? That’s right. Only a bed and breakfast can make you feel the luxury of hotel living and home sweet home. Wake up to the smell of coffee and bacon, and at night, snuggle up at the fireplace while reading your favorite book.
Dry skin and cranky muscles due to lack of physical activities in the winter can be rejuvenated at a spa. Choose a luxury treatment and indulge yourself to the hydrotherapy tub or the sauna. You can also find a hotel that offers a spa package so you can hook the family to a relaxing spa getaway.
