My fiance and I are planning a Cape Cod honeymoon and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to do. We’re staying at the same B&B in Chatham that we stayed for our first vacation away together for a week. We want to take some day trips to Martha’s Vineyard and P-town but we aren’t sure what there is to do in October?

Whale watches off of P-Town in October are good.

If you like bike riding there’s the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
Also, you can go on a Dune Tour in P-Town. Those can be fun if you make them fun, and of course the views are great.
Drive along 6A and stop wherever you like.
My grandmother works at the Museum of Natural History along 6A in Brewster/Dennis. It’s not really updated to 2009 but there are nice trails behind the museum.
Spend a day and go to all the lighthouses you can handle. The one right in Chatham is nice, but I really like going to Highland Light.
If you pick up a Cape Cod Times, there’s a section that lists out random things that are going on that week.
You can find old houses that have been set up as museums now. The history is always so interesting, and the abumdance of Asian art is crazy!
Definitely go to at least one Christmas Tree Shop and one Cuffy’s.

SEAFOOD!!! If you like that. We were initially going to do a Cape Code Mini-moon and push the honeymoon back but now honeymoon is pushed back up. But I’m jealous! I’ve always wanted to see Cape Cod.

More thoughts: Mini-golf, we played several times when we were at the Cape in the fall!
A few of my favorite Cape Cod places to eat:
– Inaho (Japanese) on Rte 6A in Yarmouthport
– Oceanhouse (gorgeous views, right on the water, good food. Expensive but during off-peak season they have a cheap menu – like $35 for 3 courses or something) Old Wharf Rd in Dennisport.
– Roadhouse Cafe (yummy, nice, FI and I went here for dinner the day we got engaged) on Main Street in Hyannis (parking lot entrance on South St)
– Baxter’s (might not be open after summer) on the harbour in Hyannis. Good atmosphere, relaxing, great for inexpensive seafood & beer.
– Four Seas Ice Cream (might be closed by October) THE BEST ice cream on Cape Cod. on South Main Street in Centerville
– The Black Dog Tavern – famous, good food, I suggest going for breakfast or lunch – Vineyard Haven Harbour, Martha’s Vineyard
– There is a cool winery on Nantucket that has their own, beer, wine and infused vodka for tasting – check to see if they are open in Oct though.

Gracie’s Table is my favorite romantic restaurant on the Cape…it’s really intimate, great food, and a fantastic wine list.
