Cape Cod in the rain

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Cape Cod for three nights (Thur - Sat nights) over this coming weekend, and we see the weather prediction is for rain and showers for much of the time. This is our first trip to the Cape, and although we are a little disappointed that the weather will be less than stellar, we are pretty sure there must be a lot to do and see in spite of the rain.

Coming from California, where it doesn't rain at all this time of year, we are scrambling to find umbrellas and other wet-weather gear to pack. We will have a rental car - we're booked into a waterfront hotel in East Falmouth, but plan to try to see as much of the Cape as possible in three days, before we head to Boston for another couple days ... looking like rain there too, but in the city I am sure we will find plenty to do indoors if need be.

Anyone have suggestions for some interesting activities under the weather conditions that are predicted? We are in our late 50s and early 60s, active, like to walk and bike, enjoy local history and museums, and looking forward to trying some of the local foods. Wait - who am I kidding? We are looking forward to trying A LOT of the local foods, so we will definitely be looking for some activities to burn calories ...

Thanks!
