Cape Cod is very popular destination at any summer season. The
unique warm ocean at south shore and sandy beaches makes hot
weather bearable and even pleasant.
In spite of being close to Boston to get there for weekend is not easy or cheap. If you have car major obstacle is traffic. There are two bridges connected Cape Cod with mainland. At weekend morning often miles line of cars are waiting to ride along there. Sunday evening is special time when everybody returning to Boston. If at empty road drive to Boston takes below two hours at Sunday night one can expect times longer. Plus renting car if you doesn't own one at summer prohibitively expensive. There arte bus transportation but traffic apply to them as well plus ticket price is just below hundred for roundtrip for two. Arguable the cheapest and most relaxing option to get summer Cape Cod experience is CapeFlyer train from Boston to Hyannis with discount Sunday roundtrip tickets $15 for one. Bike is free. We tried it last weekend and there is slideshow about.
