Cape Cod in September?

Hi everyone,

I've just discovered what a mine of information you have here and would like to pick your brains if that's ok.

I'm heading to New England for a couple of weeks in the coming month and will probably be on Cape Cod for a few nights arriving around Sept 18th or 19th. I'm just wondering where might be a good affordable place to stay - walking/casting distance to water required! I'm traveling with my wife so a location where she can be dumped whilst I'm out and about would be great (for example near beach or shops would be ideal...) I was thinking that Orleans or Chatham might be a good place to start looking but any other suggestions are welcome.

Also, lastly and most importantly, where would be a good place for a complete striper newbie to start?

Thanks for your patience guys,

Tony

Bringing this back to the top.

There's a place on Main Street in Chatham that, I believe, Adrian stays at thats a short walk to Chatham light and to points above the light (Claflins). Also, it's right in the middle of a quaint villag/tourist trap with plenty of shops for your wife to spend your money in. Forgot the name. The Stone Horse in Harwich is reasonable but will require a short drive to get to the water. I'm sure others will chime in.

Tony, I would highly recommend Chatham. Try the Surfside Motor Inn in Chatham....it is at the end of Main St in Chahtam, 100 yds from the water, 10 minute walk back to town for shopping. Not cheap, but nothing is in Chatham....that time of year, probably $90-95 per night. Not fancy, but clean....has an "old inn type atmosphere".
It's a 10 min. walk to the Lighthouse area.
Better than that.....if your wife likes a beautiful beach....get in the car, go about a mile beyond the lighthouse on Morris Island Rd. to the Rip Ryder water taxi shuttle to South Beach...about 4 to 5 miles of unspoiled, population free shoreline, with tons of seals for your wife to watch. It a long penisula...surf fishing on one side, at least 3 miles of flats fishing on the other....only a 5 minute walk anywhere from surf to flats. Round trip is $10 each....runs 8 to 4....pick ups in between per Captain Keith's shuttle.........in my opinion....it is heaven!!!! Look up Rip Ryder in the sponsor section of this site.

The place I've stayed at is the Dolphin Inn. Nice because everything is within walking distance - turn left for fishing, turn right for clams and cocktails

Thanks for the info.

Looks like Chatham it's gonna be..

Is Chatham still busy in mid-September or will I get away without advance reservations? I'd guess weekend accommodations would still need to be booked in advance?

Must go now - have a bunch of clousers to tie!

Thanks again,

Tony

Thumbs up

Advance booking is recommended - but shop around for the best deal
