Honestly if I could have every day be the 25th of October I would! I love fall and all it brings to us from the brilliant trees to the smells in the air. Now being the owner of an Inn on Cape Cod I should be saying I love summer on Cape Cod, woo hoo sand dunes and salty air. Right, they are wonderful in the fall too, probably more lovey as my opinion is only being expressed here.
What is going on during my favorite time of year besides warm cider, pumpkins and apple picking? Do you need more? Well, perhaps you do so let’s start with the Truro Vineyard tours. Fabulous and in the fall even more so. Who doesn’t love to sip wine while watching the glow of an autumn sun over the vines?
The beaches are outstanding to walk on in the fall as well as so many restaurants offer local produce that makes for a wonderful fall menu! We will guide you to the top choices for your stay and even sneak a water view dining night in. We have dune tours (also available on one of our specials) whale watching until the middle of October, organic produce store offering local fresh cranberries and bottled home pressed cider.
The summer masses have left and the view is dappled in oranges and yellows.. entirely magic. If you have not experienced Provincetown in the fall you truly must.
Book a room at The Provincetown Hotel at Gabriel’s where we offer afternoon hot mulled cider, home baked cookies paired with our early evening outside fire pit. After you can go back to your room with a choice from our 900 plus video library. Yes, The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is indeed a choice!
