Tips To Enjoy Cape Cod On The Off Season

Destination

Cape Cod, Mass., is not known for its charms in the winter months, but ruling it out as a destination during down time would mean overlooking some of the hidden gems that shine this time of year.

 

For one, off-season rates on vacation homes and hotels are significantly more affordable. Without the tourist traffic, Cape Cod proves to be a private and cozy getaway. A seaside sojourn at some of the Cape’s nicest accommodations, like Sea Crest Beach Hotel, can cost you a mere $100 a night.

 

While a swim at the beach won’t sound too inviting in March, a walk along the Cape Cod National Seashore at sunset is unbeatable. You can explore at low tide and collect sea glass and shells left behind in the ocean’s wake.

 

Take advantage of this time to see Cape Cod like the locals do. This mostly means indulging in some fresh seafood without the 45-minute wait. The best eateries are those unmarked shacks on the shore that attract a line of 30 people on a hot summer day, though dinner at a place like JT’s Seafood or Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar will leave you just as satisfied.

 

If you find yourself restless during your peaceful, quiet stay, you can explore the many Cape Cod consignment shops or peruse an art gallery in creative destinations like Provincetown or Wellfleet. And just because it’s not tourist season, doesn’t mean the festivities get put on hold. The annual Boatbuilders Show takes place February 6–8, while the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival kicks off mid-March. Visit CapeCodChamber.org for more events as well.
