Have you been cooped up in this city too much this year? Plan an escape to the cool breezes and intoxicating charm of Cape Cod.

Located less than 1.5 hours from Boston and 3.5 hours from New York City, Cape Cod has long been favorite destination to slow down, take a dip in the refreshing waters of the Atlantic, eat your weight in fish and chips, and enjoy the natural beauty of the peninsula's wild coastline.

If you haven't been to the Cape, what are you waiting for? Here's when to go, where to stay, and what to do on your next Cape Cod adventure.

When to Go

The most popular time to visit Cape Cod is during the summer, when the days are warm and the nights are perfect for sipping a glass of wine around the fire pit. Summer temperatures typically range in the mid-60s to mid-70s.

With the summer brings the crowds, though, so don't discount the border seasons. Spring and fall can be delightful times to visit, especially as the traffic dies down and the beaches clear out. Be sure to pack a warm jacket and a raincoat for Cape Cod's sometimes-unpredictable weather swings.
