There’s always something fun to see or do on Cape Cod and that’s particularly true once the weather starts warming up. The variety of upcoming Falmouth events, alone, are more than enough for a relaxing getaway.
Spring on Cape Cod is a dress rehearsal for the bustle of summer. The crowds are lesser, the events fewer but still more than enough to make for an exciting getaway.
Of course, you don’t really need any special events to visit Cape Cod. Our wonderful beaches are always here, along with our stately lighthouses, and delectably fresh seafood. Parks, trails, whale watching and other wildlife tours, cruises, shopping, museums, dining, theater … it really is endless.
This is not to say there aren’t any special or seasonal attractions right now, either. As I say at the top, Cape Cod always has one or two things up its sleeve!
