Travel to Cape Cod
Before deciding on the best way to travel to Cape Cod, there are a number of questions you might want to consider about the duration and nature of your trip. These might include:
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 Provincetown in July might decide to leave the car at home and travel instead by ferry.
For the most part, though, couples visiting from the northeastern United States will generally choose to take their own car. 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, youíre almost certainly going to need a car to get around while you are actually here. While there are one or two places, like Provincetown or Hyannis, where itís possible to enjoy a car-free vacation, most of the places youíre going to want to see are accessible only by road.
Mass transit on Cape Cod is virtually non-existent, so if youíre not planning on bringing your own vehicle, youíre probably going to need to rent one for the duration of your stay. We can help you out with links to car rental companies, either on the Cape itself, on either of 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 ways to get to Cape Cod.
