The End of Summer

September 12, 2012

Good Morning All!

We had a great summer at the Cape Cod resorts- great weather, lots of attractions, and wonderful people visiting!  The weather is definitely cooler now, especially at night.  During the day when the sun is out it has been mid 70s.  Last night was bittersweet as we had our last resort BBQ at Surfside.  We had a good turnout, and everyone had a blast!  I think after such a busy summer, the resorts are ready for fall though!  Hayrides, harvest festivals, hot apple cider…I know I am excited for the next season!  The fall is a beautiful time to visit the Cape, so call us to book your reservations now! 🙂
