To some, the fall is their favorite time of year. To Cape Codders and people visiting the cape, “fall” can be seen as a dirty word. Let’s be honest, no one ever wants to put their flip flops or beach chairs away. However, in the most recent years the Cape has been trying to become more of a year round destination by hosting many festivals and restaurant Cape Cod fall events. Whether you’re local or visiting, our Cape Cod team can make travel arrangements, run errands, and so much more to save you time and energy. Leave the details to us.

Going to the beach on Cape Cod is always going to be a must and the fall allows for free parking, mild water temperatures, and plenty of room to relax on the sand. If you head to the outer coastline of the Cape, there are six beaches that make up the federally protected National Seashore Beaches. One of these, the Coast Guard Beach in Eastham is often included in many top 10 US beaches lists.
CRANBERRY BOG TOUR
While apples may be the main fruit that comes to mind when you think of the fall months, the cranberry is a quintessential part of easing us into those winter months. The Cape Farm & Cranberry Company in Harwich, the largest organic cranberry bog on Cape Cod, offers tours seven days a week. With education on the operations of the bog and a fresh farm stand at the end, this is a fun, informative, and unique experience for the whole family to enjoy.
