Maritime and Coastal sustainable tourism, a key to blue growth and working towards a positive impact on our home.Tips on how and what to see!

It’s no secret that life slows down on Cape Cod during the cooler months of the year, and for some travelers, that’s all the more reason to visit.

After all, while lounging on the beach isn’t quite the same in January as it is during July, beach walks are great year round. With ample room to explore and a number of restaurants and hotels still being open, the Cape is very much an enticing destination for late autumn and early winter trips.

As the old saying goes, though, a picture’s worth a thousand words, and for the ten scenes below, that price would be something of a bargain.

Here are 10 Instagram scenes that will make you think about a little time on Cape Cod before the days start getting longer, if you aren’t already planning on doing so. As always, a major thank you to the folks who are kind enough to share with us and allow us to re-share.
