Romantic weekend getaways in Cape Cod in the fall are a magnet for couples who want to escape their daily lives, reconnect, and take in the beauty of New England. And, being that it’s fall and out-of-season, you’ll have even more privacy.
Sure, Cape Cod’s white sand beaches and dunes make it one of the most popular destinations in New England year-round. But fall is really special. After all, there are few places in the region where you can watch the ocean sunset amid magnificent fall foliage. One of those ideal spots is at the Cape Cod National Seashore where you can experience, first-hand, the Great Beach of Cape Cod that Thoreau wrote about more than a century ago.
Reasons To Visit Cape Cod
Cape Cod and the Islands make an ideal romantic getaway destination simply because there is just so much to do.
Activities include: hiking, walking, whale watching, cycling, swimming , shopping, scenic drives, village touring, visiting lighthouses, wine tasting, boating, and quite a lot more.
Or you can just do nothing but walk along a deserted white sand beach for miles – our personal favorite.
The Cape has numerous bike paths – along with plenty of places to rent bicycles.
You’ll also find great fall walks and hikes around marshes, along sand bars, and through swamps and nature trails. And spend time at the Cape Cod National Seashore visitor centers in Eastham and Province Lands just outside Provincetown, to appreciate this geological wonder.
Hyannis is the major town on the Cape and has a mall and a scenic train ride you can take through the cranberry bogs to Sandwich Village and back. This is popular ride in the summer and fall, and they have a special dinner sunset ride in the evening during the season.
Cape Cod Vacation Packages
If you’re concerned about the price of room rates – as so many of us are – there is no need to worry. Since fall is a slower season in the region, many of the Cape Cod Hotels offer affordable vacation packages to suit your every need. Come reconnect with your loved one, and experience the beauty of fall on Cape Cod.
You’ll be glad you did.
