It’s no secret that winters can be harsh on Cape Cod, a fact that makes the arrival of spring a quite joyous occasion for residents and visitors alike! Warmer days where the sun stays light longer, the promise of newly budded trees, and the opportunity to get out and experience the joys of the breathtaking Cape Cod natural landscape are what spring on Cape Cod is all about. Here are some of our favorite spring outdoor activities on Cape Cod for you to enjoy during your stay in paradise!

Sunrise Walks on the Beach

Some of our best thinking comes in the early morning hours as we walk along a beach waiting for the sun to rise. But of course, all thinking stops as the sun begins to rise, bathing steely gray waters and tan beaches in a warm mellow glow. Chatham Lighthouse Beach, Nauset Light Beach in Eastham, and Harding’s Beach (also in Chatham) offer some of the more scenic walks, but any beach near your New England Vacation Rentals escape will do as well!

Brewster in Bloom

Early May is the time for this special festival that celebrates all the promises that spring offers. Brewster in Bloom lasts for three days and features food, fun, drinks, music, and flowers! Travelers with children will discover that the Kid’s Fest at Drummer Boy Park may just end up being the highlight of their entire trip! Entry is free, but you will need money for purchasing food, drinks, and souvenirs!

Watch the Whales

Springtime is the start of the best whale watching season on Cape Cod, and many charter companies offer whale watching tours for the adventure of a lifetime! There is no greater adventure than catching sight of these magnificent mammals’ bodies breaking through the waves. For those of you who are staying in one of our Harwich homes, Down Cape Charters and Rentals offers a private three-hour tour for $600 for a maximum of six guests!

Bike Ride Across Cape Cod

See the Cape from the seat of a bike you’ve rented from one of the many bike rental companies in the area. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is the most popular bike trail, running through six towns and 22 miles. Chatham Hood Bikes offers delivery of bikes right to your rental, and the trail itself offers an unforgettable view of the natural beauty of Cape Cod!
