Each year brings different dynamics and this year is no different so far. Based on January bookings, we are off to a strong start for next summer, as bookings for the Cape & Islands are up a strong 16.3% over a year ago. The Vineyard has shot out of the gate at an impressive 26% increase. Whether this burst of activity presages a strong overall season – our hope – or, merely a shift in vacationer timing to earlier bookings, will not be clear for a few more months. But, we’ll be watching closely and reporting regularly on what we are seeing. To read our full press release on these booking numbers as well as pricing-related issues so far this season, click here.
