Fall weekends in Orleans are my favorite. My siblings and I have grown up boogey boarding at Nauset Beach (before all of the sharks!) and chasing sunsets at Skaket Beach. In general, the fall season brings a sense of quiet & calmness to Cape Cod. Most local businesses stay open, but the summer crowds are pretty much gone. It’s warm enough to enjoy the occasional beach day, boat rides a plenty, fishing trips, walks around the neighborhood, & so much more.
