Think of Cape Cod and perhaps you imagine the outdoors, gorgeous weather,the national seashore, abundant wildlife, sailing, biking and of course wonderful restaurants.  However all this does not end on Labor Day, in fact on the contrary, some of the best weather can be found in September and October, the beaches are not crowded, the bike trails are not like the “beltways’ or “turnpikes”, and you can eat without queuing for an hour!
