The icy beauty of a cold winter’s day on Cape Cod is a sight you’ll never forget, and if you’re one who doesn’t believe in following the crowds, a winter getaway to Cape Cod is the perfect adventure for you! Offering lower prices, fewer crowds, and the opportunity to live like the residents do (if only for a week!), this season is our favorite time of the year. Take the chance to discover all of the things to do on Cape Cod for the best time of year!
In case you wondered, a snow-covered beach photographs just as beautifully as one on a summer’s day; the tan sand peaking through the white blanket, the steel gray skies matching the steel gray waters, and if you are in Chatham, the crisp white of the lighthouse rises strong and proud, next to the keeper’s house with its brick red roof. The stark beauty of a winter beach will shine through even on a cell phone camera and may change your mind as to when your favorite time to visit may be!
Vacations are about trying new things, right? So why not take advantage of the horseback lessons offered by Emerald Hollow Farm in Brewster? A one-hour private lesson costs $70 and involves all aspects of riding. Grooming, tacking, and handling is included in this lesson, but if you just want to ride, a 45-minute private lesson, still costing $70, is completely devoted to riding. And who knows? Maybe this will be a hobby you can take up in earnest upon your return home!
When the mercury is dropping and the snow is falling, staying warm may be of utmost importance, and when you explore the beers brewed on the premises of Devil’s Purse Brewing Co, you’re sure to be toasty! Located at 120 Great Western Road in South Dennis, the only food served here is chips and jerky, but they do offer food truck events every so often. But if the beer is what you are here for, their taps are ever-changing and include delicious brews such as Handline Kolsch, Pity Party IPA, and Shore Laddie Porter! Also offering growler refills and kegs for rent, your winter nights on the cape promise to stay quite warm after a visit to the Devil’s Purse.

Call us today and book a stay today and enjoy all of the things to do on Cape Cod!
We’ll be the first to admit that most people don’t think of Dennis Port, or of Cape Cod for that matter, as a place to spend their winter vacations. However, if you’re looking for someplace different to vacation this season, we think you should consider a Cape Cod family vacation! Anyone can visit a tropical locale (and many do) during the coldest months of the year, but some of us prefer winter to actually feel the cold! For out-of-the-box thinkers looking for something new, here’s a list of winter events and activities to keep you excited during your Massachusetts vacation—time to bundle up and get out there!
It may be a little early for winter on the mainland, but Cape Cod starts getting cold in October. Luckily, there are still plenty of things to do in Cape Cod in October. The Field of Honor Display, held at Johnny Kelley Park, runs from November 9th through November 12th; it is a winter event worth seeing. Honoring those who sacrificed so much for our freedom, the field displays over 350 American flags spread out over the park. You can sponsor a flag, enter a drawing for a custom American Icon motorcycle, or simply enjoy the feeling of Americana as you make your way through the sea of flags.
Arts and culture are very important to us, and when you visit the Cape Cod Museum of Art, you have the opportunity to experience the finest of Cape Cod culture. Featuring the best of local artists and offering free admittance on Thursday’s from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM, exploring this local spot may end up being the highlight of your entire vacation in Dennis Port. This is the place to go for a perfect Cape Cod family vacation!
Traditionally, you may not have traveled far during the Christmas season, but we think this year you should consider a Cape Cod family vacation. Imagine, if you will, spending a snowy Christmas Eve in one of our New England Vacation Rentals’ classic Dennis Port Cottages. As the sun sets over the ocean, the landscape outside your window becomes a magical winter wonderland, with snow sparkling under twinkling stars. Hot cocoa enjoyed by a roaring fire, Christmas movies playing on the television, sitting by a decorated tree, purchased earlier at the Christmas Tree Shops (425 Main Street, Christmas Crossings Plaza, West Dennis). These are what holiday moments are made of. Our homes are designed for your family to enjoy, and we can’t think of a better way to spend a wintry Christmas Day than right here on Cape Cod in a NEVR home—reserve yours today!
