Have you ever heard a friend who just returned from vacation complain that she needs a vacation from her vacation? I for one, have fallen victim to the over-ambitious vacation itinerary and as a result have become a firm believer in the 2-3 day “do nothing” getaway.
What better time for an unplanned holiday than November and December on Cape Cod? The weather is still mild enough to put a pretty solid bet on no snow and, as Thanksgiving and Christmas approach, the old New England homes and inns are bedecked in their holiday finest. Shopping in downtown Chatham not only provides unique gift ideas, but shoppers can often walk away with amazing deals as the shops unload their inventory in anticipation of the quiet winter months ahead.
Our rooms at the Captains House Inn are designed for ultimate comfort and luxury – many guests honker down in one of our luxurious suites with a nice bottle of wine, bubbly tub, and a few good books and board games and appear for our gourmet breakfast the next morning, the epitome of relaxed vacationers.
And for those who prefer to step out for some culture, the Chatham Drama Guild presents “Nunsense,” Dan Goggin’s wacky musical about a group of nuns who put on a variety show to raise money for their sisters recovering from food poisoning. Performances are on weekends through mid-November.
Also playing at the Cape Cod Rep Theatre in Brewster, “The Drowsy Chaperone,” a comedy within a musical. This production is an homage to the Broadway musical, which won four Drama Desk and five Tony Awards in 2006, including Best Book and Best Original Score. Performances through November into early December.
