Ahh, Columbus Day Weekend on Cape Cod.
It’s the last long weekend before winter sets in. Why not make the most of it by experiencing true fall beauty?
After all, ’tis the season for some great apple and pumpkin picking and leaf peeping!
Apple Picking Trivia: Did You Know?
Massachusetts is the 12th biggest apple producer in the nation!
According to the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, Massachusetts-grown apples pour $12 to $15 million into the economy.
And apples grown in the Bay State – not to mention Cape Cod – are some of the tastiest in the country!
If you’re in the mood to hit the orchard on Columbus Day Weekend on Cape Cod here is where you’ll find the cream of the crop:
- Peachtree Circle – West Falmouth
- Crow Farm – Sandwich
- Hemeon Farm – Harwich
Of course, if it’s a pumpkin patch you and the kids seek, head to Tony Andrew’s Farm in East Falmouth where pumpkin picking is a time honored tradition. In addition to the best pumpkin picking on Cape Cod, harvest activities also include tractor rides over the 30-acre farm and a very special non-scary (lights-on) tour of the newly expanded Harvest of Horrors Haunted House.
New England is known for its brilliant fall foliage – and this is the time of year to experience it for yourself.
Grab a cup of cider and head to Old King’s Highway (Route 6a).
The narrow, foliage-lined road winds from the Sagamore Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal and through the towns of Sandwich, Barnstable, Yarmouth Port, Dennis, Brewster and Orleans. Don’t miss Edward Gorey’s preserved home on Strawberry Lane — together with a view of the Cape Cod bay. Depending on the weather and the season, you may catch the cranberry harvest.
