Cape Cod Travel Options

Before you start making your Cape Cod travel plans, there are a number of things you might want to consider about the duration and nature of your trip. These might include:

  • How long are you planning to stay?
  • What is your budget?
  • What time of year are you coming?
  • Where on the Cape are you planning to stay?
  • How great a distance are you traveling to get here?
  • So while a couple from Albany, planning to stay in Yarmouth for a week in September, would probably choose to drive, a couple from Boston, planning a weekend trip to Ptown in July might decide to leave the car at home and instead consider taking the Boston-Provicetown ferry.

    For the most part, though, couples visiting from the northeastern United States will generally choose to take their own car, which adds to some horrible Cape Cod traffic conjestion in peak season. People traveling from further away or overseas will obviously be better off flying. But do note that Cape Cod does not have an airport that is suitable for large commercial jets, so you will likely have to fly into Boston or Providence (much preferred) and continue your journey either by car, ferry or small plane.

    Another thing to consider is that, whichever way you choose to get to the Cape, you’re probably going to need a car to get around while you are actually here. While there are one or two places, like Ptown or Hyannis, where it’s possible to enjoy a car-free vacation, most of the places you’re going to want to see are accessible only by road.

    Mass transit on Cape Cod isn't terribly good, so if you’re not planning on bringing your own vehicle, you’re probably going to need to rent one for at least part of your stay. We can help you out with links to car rental companies, either on the Cape itself, on the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, or at either of the two main airports serving the region.

    Here, then, is our run-down of the best Cape Cod travel options.
