Off-Season Travel from the Cape to Boston

by alanrNJ

OK, so the ferry is the best way to get from the Cape to Boston and return. But since ferries don't seem to operate until mid-May, what's the best way to get to Bean-town off-season? I'm planning to visit the Cape in early April and want to day-trip to Boston, but I hate the thought of driving there.

Thanks.

Auto really is best. And it doesn't have to be a long drive. You can get to the beginning of Cape Cod in a little over an hour or to the center, like Chatham, in less than two hours. Provincetown, the farthest distance, is about three hours driving and and is the place where you would arrive on the ferry. You would probably want your car with you anyway, so personally, I would drive.

Truthfully, it's not a bad drive in early April but even at its best it is a 3 hour trip to downtown Boston from Provincetown. If you want to do a day trip and not spend 6 hours of that day on the highway, check out Cape Air.
Their winter specials don't cost much more round trip than the ferries do.
The planes are small, 9 passenger Cessnas, but it's a beautiful flight on a clear day and it's only 20 minutes from Provincetown to Logan airport.

Province Lands

by zChris

This area is filled with giant rolling sand dunes which you can explore by bike or licenced off-road vehicle (obtain a sand permit from the visitor's centre). Definately a good look at the wild flavour of the Cape. There are even sand tours on tank-looking vehicles which take you to the remotest parts of the park. Located north of the town centre near the Provincetown airport.

Moby Dick's Resturant

by Easty about Moby Dick's Resturant

A very casual seafood restaurant. It was a unique dining experience. A typical New England style clam bake atmosphere. Has fresh local lobster, oysters, and clams.

The price was very reasonable 1 1/2 lb. Lobster

Pilgrim's Monument

by leffe3

Apparently the tallest granite building in the US, the Monument dominates the skyline for miles around. Forming part of the (not that interesting) Pilgrim's Museum, the monument requires stamina to walk to the top, but at least the ascent is made easier by a series of ramps rather than steps. The gradient is much gentler as a result (other than the steps at the bottom and very top). Views from the top are great and make the effort totally worthwhile
