A Cape Cod car rental gives you the chance to explore the sandy beaches, historic towns and peaceful nature reserves found all over this eastern-US peninsula.
You can arrange your car hire before you arrive at the airport. If you’ve landed at Logan International Airport in Boston, you’ll have about an hour’s drive to Sandwich, the first major town you’ll reach in Cape Cod and the oldest on the peninsula.
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.
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.
