HYANNIS - THE INNER HARBOR
I admit I wasn't expecting the Cape to be quite so busy in mid October. I remember when the entire area including the Islands closed the day after Labor Day. One day it was high season. The next day you'd be lucky to find a restaurant that was still open for business.
Cape Cod is no longer a summer-only venue. It's commutable from Boston and open all year. And downright busy this time of year. Crowded.
The fishing boats are running full from the piers and everything is open for business. The transformation has been fast. It was just ten years ago when beaches and towns were deserted by the time the leaves were changing.
No more. So come on down. The weather's fine and with luck, you can find a parking space for free! On the Cape, free parking is as good as it gets.
