Fall and Winter Guide to Cape Cod

While Cape Cod is known for being a summer hotspot with miles of beaches, vibrant sunsets, and plenty of activities for the whole family to explore, have you ever considered a Cape Cod getaway in the fall or winter? In these cooler months, Sea Crest Beach Hotel offers an ideal, serene getaway with fewer crowds, a relaxed pace, and endless events to get you in the holiday spirit. Here are a few of our favorite ways to spend your fall and winter days on Cape Cod.

Sip On a Warm Drink at Cape Cod Winery

When the colder season sets upon New England, Cape Cod Winery becomes a haven for wine aficionados. With plenty of covered seating and a cozy fall menu, keeping the cold at bay is easy to do. Keep an eye on their Instagram for news of seasonal drinks, including their spiced mulled wine. As you stroll across their quintessential New England-style grounds, enjoy the scenery and sip the day away. Don’t forget to bring home a bottle of their signature Cabernet Sauvignon or Rosé to remember your time on the Cape.

Celebrate the Holidays at Sea Crest

Switch up your Thanksgiving tradition this year, and join us at Sea Crest for a delicious, celebratory meal. On November 23, indulge in a feast including all your favorite holiday dishes, including expertly prepared turkey, traditional sides, hot and cold stations, and a raw bar. The Ocean View Dining Room offers a scenic backdrop with beautiful coastline views, setting the stage for a memorable Thanksgiving meal. Gather your loved ones and get your tickets to enjoy a delicious feast on the Cape.

If a Thanksgiving getaway isn’t in the cards for you this year, then New Year’s Eve is the perfect time for a coastal escape. Bid farewell to the old year and welcome in the new with an indulgent celebration at Sea Crest. The festivities commence with a spread of New England culinary classics, featuring a decadent grand dessert display. The celebration starts at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. It’s the ideal way to ring in the new year with family and friends, as you reflect on the past year to the sound of crashing waves and live music.

When you come for a special dinner celebration, take advantage of the cozy setting and enjoy a long weekend on our picturesque piece of the coast with our Stay More, Save More offer. Stay three or more nights to save up to 15% off per night, or stay five or more nights to save up to 20% off per night. It’s never a bad idea to stay a little longer in the heart of idyllic Cape Cod.

Take a Ride on the Polar Express

If you’re looking for some holiday fun for the whole family, look no further than The Polar Express Train Ride. Adventure comes to life as the train twists and turns through scenic New England every weekend from late November through December. This journey includes a meeting with Santa Claus, holiday music, dancing servers, and a reading of “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg. Enjoy freshly baked cookies and hot chocolate to make the experience even more magical.

Experience Holiday Magic at Gardens Aglow

One of the best parts of a Cape Cod escape is how every attraction sets the scene for picturesque relaxation. For another family-friendly option, we recommend visiting the Gardens Aglow event at Heritage Museums & Gardens. Walk through stunning light displays that fill the gardens before checking out the vintage car collection. Little ones will have a blast roasting marshmallows by the fire or by uncovering treasures through the reindeer scavenger hunt. Following suit, children and adults alike can indulge in the seasonal treats from the Cape Cod Donuts truck. Savor special holiday moments at this festive wonderland and make it a holiday getaway you’ll never forget.

Cape Cod transforms during the fall and winter months, offering a different kind of allure. Sea Crest Beach Hotel, your charming waterfront resort, puts you at the center of this seasonal magic. From recently refreshed rooms to vibrant sunsets right outside your door, the opportunities to enjoy this season in New England are endless. So, embrace the change of seasons and explore the Cape’s hidden gems, holiday events, and peaceful moments.
