Why You Should Plan Your Cape Cod Vacation Now

Make 2018 the Year You Use All Your Vacation Days! 

Did you know that more than half of Americans don’t use all their allotted vacation days? The study also found that Massachusetts residents are guilty, with 55% of Bay Staters admitting they don’t use every hour of vacation time.

To avoid eating lunches at your desk while your co-workers enjoy the 40 miles of Cape Cod National Seashore and breathtaking sunsets, start vacation preparations now.

Here’s why: A majority (52%) of workers who dedicate time each year to plan out their vacation end up using all their time off, compared to just 40% of non-planners. Advance planners also tend to take longer vacations. On the Cape, 1-2 weeks will give you time to explore the entire peninsula, including restaurants, entertainment and the vast spaces of national parks and nature preserves, as opposed to fitting in a few days at the beach over a long weekend. Here are a few other perks for early birds.

Stay at Your First Choice Spot
More than four million people visit Cape Cod each year. Don’t risk your favorite spot being booked up because you waited until May to call. Hotels, bed & breakfasts and a variety of resorts offer early bird booking incentives and vacation packages, as well as deals for midweek and off-season stays. You also have the option to contact Kinlin Grover Vacation Rentals and find a private home perfect for your family to enjoy for 1 week or more!

Plan a Family Vacation or Couples Getaway
Cape Cod offers cozy options for couples, as well as enough family-friendly activities to keep both you and the kids entertained. While it’s an ideal vacation spot for everyone, you’ll want to nail down the details to ensure the experience you want is the one you end up having.

Couples should look for quiet retreats and getaways that offer plenty of privacy and pampering. To escape everyday stress and unplug, a quaint bed & breakfast or historic inn may be in order. The Palmer House Inn in Falmouth transports you to another time in their Queen Anne Victorian house.

For a perfect spa experience, consider the Shui Spa at The Crowne Pointe Inn & Spa in Provincetown, which provides facials, body wraps and restorative massages using Kiehl’s Skin Care Products. Alternatively, the Beach Plum Spa specializes in overnight and day packages for massages at two Cape Cod locations.

Besides relaxing spa experiences, the Cape Codder Resort adds a giant dose of family fun with its 30,000 sq. foot indoor water park with giant slides, a lazy river and a wave pool. The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club – a 4-star oceanfront property in Harwich – offers stylish amenities for the whole family. Kids can take advantage of the outdoor aquatic playground, a game room and movie nights, while the adults experience one of the finest golf courses in New England. The Red Jacket Resorts on Cape Cod (there are five, all located in Yarmouth) offer a little bit of everything – private beaches, supervised kids’ programs, indoor and outdoor pools and water sports.

In September, the weather stays warm, but most of visitors have gone home, leaving an intimate feel to the ocean paradise. Late fall provides foliage and perfect temperatures to enjoy the bike trails and festivals that let you indulge in food and culture.

So don’t delay any longer, book early and be sure to savor every vacation day.
