None of your Cape Cod adventures will take place if you don’t actually get to the Cape, so we at New England Vacation Rentals want to spend a few minutes talking about the best ways to get to Cape Cod. This guide to getting to Cape Cod will lead you on a journey to fun and adventure!
Fly the Friendly Skies
Yes, Cape Air flies into Hyannis, allowing visitors to make the most of their vacation as they spend less time trying to find transportation. As with smaller airports, however, it can be a little more expensive, and many people fly into Logan airport in Boston, and finish the commute by car, boat, or train.
Believe it or not, thanks to the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges, travelers can drive from their homes all the way to our homes without missing a beat. This is yet another time where the journey may be just as exciting as the destination, so if you love a road trip, planning one to Cape Cod will give you one you wish never had to end! Or, if the thought of driving all those miles doesn’t excite you, you can fly into Logan airport, rent a car, and enjoy a short jaunt from Boston to Cape Cod, which gives you a vehicle to use while here.
Romantic Trip on the Rails
It was the trains that opened Cape Cod to visitors, and with Cape Flyer, a regional train service that travels from Boston to Cape Cod, you too can experience this cozy and romantic rail trip for your vacation. Take the Amtrak train to Boston, switch to the Cape Flyer, and be prepared for an adventure to end all adventures. Again, you can fly to Boston if time is of an essence, and then take the train to Cape Cod, renting a car on your arrival.
Take the Ferry
Ferry services are plentiful for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, or Nantucket, and they can actually be an adventure in themselves, especially if you catch sight of dolphins, or even a whale breaching the waters during your voyage over the waters to your home sweet vacation home. Bay State Cruise Company takes travelers from Boston to Provincetown, a 3+ hour cruise that offers ample seating and a scenic ride your entire family will enjoy.
