Visiting a cranberry is a top activity to experience when it's fall in Massachusetts.

Why You Should Visit Oceanfront Massachusetts in the Fall

Even though there is still plenty of summer vacation season left, it’s never too early to start planning your autumn escape. However, fall in Massachusetts is often referred to as “second summer,” making it the perfect time to plan your stay at Lighthouse Inn. Our oceanfront hotel on Cape Cod is the ideal place for anyone looking to enjoy a memorable vacation without the summer crowds.

Average high temperatures in the fall can range between mid-40 degrees and high-60 degrees. While it often cools down at night, there is still plenty of warm weather left in the shoulder season to enjoy. 

What to Do on Your Fall Getaway in Cape Cod

Fall is often considered one of the best times of the year to visit Cape Cod. Staying at our beachfront hotel in West Dennis puts you near all the activities and attractions you could ever want when visiting from September to November. 

  • If you’re looking for something a bit spooky, go to Barnstable Village to go on a haunted history tour with Cape Cod’s Haunted & History Tour Co. You’ll make your way through 10 stops, eight of which have ghost stories.
  • Experience a beach without the hustle and bustle of summer. Enjoy the convenience of staying at an oceanfront Cape Cod hotel. Simply grab one of our beach chairs to soak in the fall sunshine or go for an evening stroll along our shoreline.
  • Fall is all about cranberries. Go on a cranberry bog tour in Harwich at the largest organic cranberry bog in Cape Cod. The yearly Harwich Cranberry Arts & Music Festival also takes place every September. 
  • Take in breathtaking autumn hues on a nature walk. There are plenty of nearby parks and trails perfect for this picturesque activity, including Fresh Pond Conservation Area, Nickerson State Park, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
  • Spend a fall afternoon at Taylor Bray Farm in neighboring Yarmouth. This farm is part historical landmark, part barnyard. While you can visit the animals, please do not feed them. You can also walk out the boardwalk to Black Flats Marsh to experience incredible views.
