Make 2021 the Year You Use ALL Your Vacation Days
Commit to using those well-deserved vacation days this year! COVID-19 affected all aspects of everyday life, compelling Americans to change their behavior, including around travel. However, one noticeable trend remains the same: Americans still are not using their vacation days. According to the US Travel Association, American workers left an average of 33% of their paid time-off on the table last year. At the same time, more than six in 10 people feel they desperately need a vacation! And 97% of survey respondents say having a trip planned makes them feel happier.
To avoid eating lunches at your desk while your co-workers stroll the 40 pristine miles of the Cape Cod National Seashore and ogle breathtaking sunsets, start your vacation preparations NOW.
Make Up For Lost Time
Travel is good for our health and our relationships, and after the past year we all need time to reconnect - with loved ones, significant others and ourselves! Cape Cod offers relaxing options for couples, as well as more than enough family-friendly activities to create lifelong memories.
Explore nature trails that wind through woodlands, rivers and lakes, cedar swamps and salt marshes. Enjoy the Cape's natural beauty on two wheels- whether it's mountain biking through wooded forests, a ride along scenic byways, or exploring the many paved trails. Cruise into one of our picturesque bays, kettle ponds or harbors on a kayak or paddleboard. Charter a fishing boat to get your own catch of the day. Go on a whale or seal watch, or play a round of golf on one of our pristine courses.
Discover Cape Cod in Every Season
There's a lot to love about summer on the seashore, including gorgeous beaches, cocktails with a view of the ocean, a sea of hydrangeas, and plenty of active adventures. We may be biased, but we think the other three seasons on Cape Cod are just as spectacular. For colorful blooms and warming temperatures, book a spring break. Gardens across the Cape, from backyards to the 100-acre Heritage Museum & Gardens, provide a fragrant carpet of spring flowers and lush landscapes. In September, the weather remains warm, but the majority of visitors have gone home, offering a more intimate feel to your ocean paradise. Late fall (also known as Cape Cod's Second Summer, provides fiery foliage walks and perfect temperatures to take advantage of a bevy of bike trails and scenic hikes. Winter is the perfect excuse to stay inside and enjoy historic inns and crackling fires at cozy restaurants, or to venture out for holiday strolls, bird watching and quiet beach walks. On even the coldest days, the lucky few may be able to spot ice formations rolling in on shore.
Survey data shows that 84% of Americans are excited to plan a vacation in the next six months, indicating an impending surge in travel demand once conditions improve. With so many great travel deals to be had, savvy vacation planners who are able to book future trips now would be wise to take advantage of these offers—before demand picks up. Don’t risk your favorite hotel or inn being fully booked by the time you decide to make a reservation. Hotels, bed & breakfasts and a variety of resorts offer great booking incentives and vacation packages, as well as fantastic values for midweek and off-season stays.
