Just that quickly, the year is half over and it is time to start planning for the summer holidays. Memorial Day came and went and this year, Independence Day falls on a Sunday which means more people will be enjoying a long weekend and even more will be planning their vacation to coincide with this most patriotic day of the year. If your journey brings you to Cape Cod for 4th of July this year, this guide to how we celebrate will make you glad that you chose to spend this holiday close to where our nation began its journey all those hundreds of years ago!
4th of July Parades
2020 was a rough one and many of our regularly scheduled events were cancelled due to the pandemic, so we are excited that things are opening up again and because nothing is more heartwarming than a 4th of July parade, this guide lets you know where you can go to enjoy one this year! The Chatham Independence Day parade is one of the nation’s oldest holiday parades and is scheduled to be held on Saturday, July 3rd at 9:30. Offering the theme “Chatham: From Shell-tering in Place by the Sea, to Celebrating a New Beginning,” this special event promises to be a beautiful celebration of the return to normal in our nation. If you are staying in one of our Brewster Foran Realty escapes, the city of Brewster is planning its own 4th of July Parade on July 4th, starting at 9:30. Of course, if you really want to go all out, attend both parades and enjoy a super special Independence Day celebration.
But What About Fireworks?
What is 4th of July without fireworks, right? Well, unfortunately many of the fireworks displays have been cancelled and others are still in the planning stages, but as of today, Dennis is still planning their annual West Dennis Beach Party, offering music, a bonfire, and a fireworks celebration that is scheduled to begin at 9:00 PM. The towns of Sandwich, Orleans, and Hyannis are still in the planning stages, so we can’t determine if there will be fireworks, but we can pretty much guarantee that if you want to see fireworks, someone will be setting them off, so why not head to the nearest beach and see what happens?
Patriotic and Peaceful
Celebrating with your family in the comfort of our Foran Realty holiday hideaways will give this 4th of July a boost of brilliance! Reserve yours today!
Although the winter holidays are wonderful and our milestone birthdays and anniversaries are special, there is one weekend in the year that brings us great joy, as it serves as the starting line for our favorite season. Memorial Day Weekend is just a few months away, and as winter fades away, spring arrives, and summer stands in the wings waiting patiently to enter from stage right, now is the perfect time to start planning your Cape Cod getaway and a stay in one of our Foran Realty holiday escapes! This guide to the fun you can have with us will make Memorial Day Weekend one of your favorite holidays as well!
The Days Are Longer
As the sun shines brightly down on lucky visitors and residents of Cape Cod, you begin to explore the luxury amenities and comforts of our Foran Realty homes, but unlike other trips to this historic area, this adventure starts with the exterior of your temporary home. Head out the back doors, where large decks, patios, or balconies offer the promise of parties just waiting to happen. Featuring chaise lounges for sunning yourself, chairs for sitting and soaking in the views, and plenty of places to eat, drink, and be merry, these will be your favorite spots. The views may be glorious “seascapes” with sand and beach to remind you why you chose Cape Cod for your getaway, or they may be simple glimpses of the family neighborhood you’ve picked for peace and quiet, offering colorful hydrangea blooms and the sounds of children laughing and playing in the distance. At night, when the moon rises high and the landscape comes to light in its soft glow, your explorations of your hideaway may move inside, where you discover cheerful kitchens, warm and inviting living spaces, and bedrooms designed to offer the best sleeps of your life.
The Fun Never Ends
For now, there may not be any special events commemorating this holiday, but you can celebrate the beginning of summer in your own way! Spend your days playing at the beaches, taking family photos at the lighthouses, and devouring fresh seafood at every chance (Grill up that striped bass you caught on your fishing expeditions and accept all the accolades thrown at you!). Living your best life on Cape Cod in one of our Foran Realty vacation escapes is the best way of showing your appreciation for those who sacrificed it all for our freedom. Reserve your stay with us today!
As we enter that in between season—you know, the months between the winter holidays and the summer holidays—there is a long dry spell when it comes to extended weekends. President’s Day has passed, and except for a brief flirtation with a hangover suffered from too much St. Patrick’s Day celebrating, we really have nothing to look forward to. Time moves at an excruciatingly slow pace, and we begin to get on our family’s nerves as we squabble about nothing in particular. There is one bright spot in these long gray months, however, and that is the Easter holiday! Even though it isn’t one we normally travel during, we at Foran Realty think this is the year you should step out of the Easter “basket” with a visit to Cape Cod and a stay in one of our Foran Realty holidays hideaways!
Built for Comfort
After the past 12 months, we are all looking for a little extra comfort and coddling, and our Foran Realty Easter escapes have it all! Offering more than a touch of luxury in a world that has changed so much, your stay here will be one you never forget. Wake up early on Easter and watch your children delight in the baskets the Easter Bunny left for them in living areas that are warm and welcoming, helped by a fire crackling merrily in the fireplace that is the focal point of the room. Create an Easter feast in our fully equipped kitchens, not forgetting to boil and color the eggs you can hide around the house (if the weather is a little wet and cold) or outside on the patio, deck, or in the yard on a sunny and serene Easter Sunday. Gather together to enjoy the meal you created at large tables designed to hold all the members of your traveling party, telling stories and laughing at the tired old Dad jokes that even Mom can’t help giggling at every so often! And when the sugar buzz wears off, leaving your littles passed out wherever they are sitting, carry them into bedrooms furnished with only the most comfortable of beds; it’s ok if they won’t release their plastic egg that has become such a treasure.
A Softer Quieter Getaway
Your Easter getaway to Cape Cod can be even better than the ones you spent at home in previous years, making this escape one that you wish could last forever. Reserve your Foran Realty Easter escape today!
