Why Spring is a Great Time to Visit Cape Charles

There's a lot to love about Spring, flowers in bloom, warmer weather and longer days. 

Sunset Beach Hotel is a great place for a getaway any time of year, but there are some definite advantages to a spring stay in Cape Charles. 

Quiet Beach Days

In late spring it's warm enough to go to the beach, but the summer crowds haven't arrived yet. That means you can have peace and quiet on the private beach at the resort or one of the other nearby beaches. You'll have plenty of space to spread out or you can go for a long walk along the sandy without having to dodge sun bathers. 

 Long Relaxing Meals

Summer is a busy, lively time in Cape Charles and visitors flock to grab a table at the great restaurants in the area. A visit during the spring means there will be fewer diners waiting for tables so you're less likely to have to wait in a line and you can feel free to linger over dinner. So grab dessert and an after dinner cocktail and enjoy you evening.

Fun Local Events

When the weather warms the towns of Virginia's Eastern Shore spring to life and put on fun, lively festivals. Cape Charles has events like the Crabby Blues Festival, Chincoteague has its annual Seafood Festival and the Eastern Shore House and Garden Tour gives visitors a look into gracious homes across the region. 

Outdoor Adventure

The Eastern Shore of Virginia is a great place for hiking, biking, kayaking, bird watching and fishing. Spring is a great time to do all of those things. Fishing heats up in the spring, migratory birds are returning north in the spring and activities like hiking, biking and kayaking are more fun in the spring because the weather is warm enough to do them but not so hot that you'll work up a sweat as soon as you step outside. 

Great Deals for the Best Rooms

One of the best things about spring getaways is that they're affordable. You can have a beach getaway and enjoy fun events and live entertainment without paying peak season prices. Plus, when you stay in spring the selection of rooms is typically bigger so you can get just what you want. Sounds like a perfect time to splurge on a suite if you ask us. 

There's so much to love about spring in Cape Charles that it might give summer a run for its money. Book a spring getaway at Sunset Beach Hotel and see for yourself.
