We are often asked, “What is there to do on Cape Cod in the winter?” Our answer is that there is plenty to do if you look beyond the usual “beach vacation”. And yet, even in the winter, the beach can be a wild and wonderful place. But there are other venues, attractions, and activities here on the Cape and not far from Brewster which are open and uncrowded and usually at no or low cost. One of the best outdoor activities available on Wednesdays throughout the winter are the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History’s Wednesday Walks.
Connie Boyce is an avid birder and takes participants to some of the most beautiful places on the Cape to catch our winter avian citizens and view fantastic landscapes that look totally different in the winter than summer. With her extensive knowledge of the area you are exploring, Connie often points out things others miss. For the best idea of what you will have in store if you take a Wednesday Walk, check out Lynn Bruneau’s blog. (Thanks to Lynn for the picture of Nauset Marsh below.)
