Road Trips around Cape Cod
There’s a wealth of villages and towns to explore as Cape Cod curves east and then northwards. After you’ve strolled around the 17th-century streets of Sandwich, take your rental car another 30 minutes to the many tucked-away beaches at Falmouth.
Drive another 45 minutes to Hyannis, which used to be John F Kennedy’s summer home and has a museum dedicated to the late president. Hyannis is also a convenient launching point for visits to two of eastern America’s most desirable islands, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
Reasons to Rent a Car in Cape Cod
All along Cape Cod, you’ll see signs for its nature reserves and biking trails, including the 22-mile Cape Cod Rail Trail. You’ll also want to stop in some of the coastal villages and taste Cape Cod’s world-renowned seafood – especially lobster.
An hour’s car-rental drive from Hyannis is Provincetown, Cape Cod’s liveliest town and home to one of eastern America’s buzziest LGBT communities. You’ll have reached the end of the cape in Provincetown, and you’ll be rewarded with some of the peninsula’s most beautiful beaches.
