What is your favorite season on Cape Cod?
My favorite season is fall. The roads quiet down, the weather is usually perfect. The water is warm, the beaches are quiet. The nights are cool, the days are warm.

Paul Phillips answered:
Which neighborhoods are least friendly when it snows in Boston? Allston? Brighton? Inman Square?
