Peep Some Leaves
Fall foliage is at its finest on Cape Cod mid-September through late October—the leaves tend to be at peak color a little later in the season, due to the Cape’s seasonal climate. Explore the beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows by foot, bike or even boat. Stretch your legs in Brewster at Nickerson State Park, where the Cape Cod Rail Trail provides 22 miles of leaf peeping on Cape Cod.

Take a Day Trip to Martha’s Vineyard
With the local ferry taking off about a ten minute drive from AutoCamp, a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard could not be easier! Mild fall weather makes biking on the Vineyard pleasant and enjoyable. With miles of paved bike trails, and rural island roads, exploring Martha’s Vineyard by bike is a great way to get acquainted with the island while getting some exercise. If you time it right, you can even enjoy their legendary Oyster Festival this October 1st & 2nd
