21 Images That Will Have You Booking A Fall Trip To Cape Cod

Summer is the most popular time of the year for travelers to enjoy the sun, surf and food of Cape Cod, but I prefer the Fall. I no longer have to fight traffic, wait in long lines at restaurants or struggle to finding a spot for my chair on the beach. If you want to enjoy the cute shops, great food and walks on the beach, the fall season is for you too. I traveled to Chatham, Cape Cod, which still has the majority of their shops and restaurant opens during this time. My favorite beaches transform into a private oasis with an occasional dog walker going by. The weather can vary, but if planned well you can still enjoy a day in the 60’s, which is perfect to me.

Chatham is located at the “elbow” of the Cape Cod. If looking at any map you can see that the land actually depicts an arm and the “elbow” is exactly where Chatham falls. It was settled by the English in 1664 and became a community of fishing, whaling and shipping. Since the town is at such a critical point of navigation by sea the Chatham Lighthouse was established in 1808 by President Thomas Jefferson. You can also visit the Chatham Light and enjoy the beach that has endured many storms in its day. The historical feel of the town still exists in the architecture today.  It is this historic charm that keeps me visiting several times a year and makes me appreciate its beauty all year round.

Road Trip: Cape Cod

Road Trip

Now that the weather is warming up in New England it’s always fun to take road trips to favorite destinations like Cape Cod.  The weather is always a mix of fog, bright sun, rain and windy beach breezes, so it’s important to pack warm and cool weather clothes.  Seasonal stores and ice cream shops are also opening up during this time so you can enjoy these places without the summer crowds.  Here are a few images of a recent road trip.  We enjoyed the beach at various temperatures, downtown shops and of course ice cream.  If you would like to learn more about my approach to travel photography then check out my recent photography blog on Holl and Lane Magazine: Travel Photography

Safe travels to your future road tips!

UConn Photo Story: Dairy Bar and Animal Barns

UCONNBlog_nbphotog

I discovered the UConn dairy bar a few years ago and look forward to returning every summer since.  The weather finally hit 70’s this past week and I decided to take my son to explore the animal barns and enjoy some ice cream.

Here are a few things to keep in mind prior to visiting.  uconn map

  1. I typically visit during the summer when school is out and there is less traffic.
  2. They have decreased the parking at the dairy bar so getting there early is ideal.
  3. You need to drive to each animal barn and the ice cream shop.  Here is a helpful map to help you plan your visit.
