Top 5 Reasons to Book A Spring Cape Cod Getaway

Summertime vacations are amazing.except when they’re not! Long waits — at restaurants, at intersections, at attractions — add an element of hassle to an otherwise lovely week at the beach. 

As much as you love Cape Cod, Travel and Leisure says that the thought of summer on the Cape “may conjure long lines of traffic, sunburns, and knickknack shops.” 

How about a different flavor of vacation this year? 

Skip the long waits and get straight into the action and relaxation on a spring getaway, instead!

Culture Trip says, “If you’re looking for a laid back atmosphere with very little traffic and great activities…then springtime on the Cape is your ideal situation.”

Here are 5 great reasons to try spring on the Cape this year:


  1. No Crowds

Your family loves a summertime trip to the beach…and so does every other family.

According to U.S. News and World Report travel guides, May is the very best time to visit Cape Cod! They explain, “If you want to avoid hordes of tourists, sneak in a visit during the short but sweet spring shoulder season.” 

The Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce explains, “Aside from swimming in the Atlantic, you can see and do everything you would during the high season for a fraction of the cost. The smaller crowds also mean more intimate experiences, shorter lines and visitors often find they receive more personalized attention.”


  1. No reservations

Party of 12? No problem! 

Your favorite Cape Cod restaurants may be packed in June, July and August. But in the spring, you may be able to walk right in without a reservation and order…for half the price!

Avoid the high-season food prices and get your lobster rolls for much less than you’re used to paying in July.

Furthermore, as Thrillist reminds us, Drinking is encouraged, especially if it’s a local brew.”

Why not take advantage of the spring season to try the Cape Cod Craft Beverage Trail? The trail website explains, “Cape Cod is home to more than just beautiful beaches. It’s a craft beverage destination with breweries, wineries, vineyards, distilleries & a cidery. Follow the trail and find the best craft beverages on Cape Cod!”


  1. Peace and Quiet

Spring can be a sweet and cozy time to plan a couple’s getaway to Cape Cod.

Perhaps you and a special someone fancy a romantic walk on the beach? Throw on a jacket and head out from the Beach Breeze Inn, just steps to the beach. Spring is a lovely time to stroll along the water without throngs of people to distract from your conversation and peace.

Need some solace? Creative types such as writers, people who work from home, or who just need a quiet place to concentrate and get fresh air will likely love springtime on the Cape.


  1. Pleasant Weather

According to the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, “The oceans work their magic in maintaining the Cape’s rather temperate climate.

Spring, fall and even some winter days are ideal times for recreation and outdoor pursuits, including golf, as the weather stays relatively mild all year long.”

Take full, peaceful advantage of our great location at the Beach Breeze Inn, relax outdoors on our beautiful patio and cozy up with our fire pit and supplies for s’mores.


  1. Outdoor Activities

From the Beach Breeze Inn, shopping and dining are just a half mile stroll away, and we’re just steps from the beach, the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard, and the Silver Sea Bikeway. 

Partake in great outdoor activities, including golfing, sailing, fishing, hiking, and biking, without the heat and the crowds. 

Walk the beach, canal, marsh, pond, bay or inlet alone with your thoughts, or in great company with your binoculars and many excellent subjects for bird-watching!

Whale and seal watching are popular jaunts, or head to Trip Advisor’s #1 rated nature activity in Cape Cod, the Shining Sea Bikeway.

One reviewer said of the bike trail, “Locals love the early spring and fall. This long trail has many parking options and trail lengths. In the summer be prepared for loads of traffic. It is beautiful and we locals prefer the off season to enjoy it.”

Conveniently situated just 20 minutes from the Bourne Bridge, the Beach Breeze Inn is a casual Cape Cod Inn located in the historic and vibrant seaside town of Falmouth, Massachusetts with a 5-Star Review Rating on TripAdvisor.
