My family is excited to finally do a "real" Cape Cod vacation after a few summers enjoying a relative's cottage on the South Shore. We found a cute little cottage on Rt. 6A almost at the border of N. Truro and Provincetown, right in the Beach Point area. We are right on the beach, and I have a question about my plan for July 4.
I know there's a parade in Provincetown, that they have great fireworks, and that there's a shuttle that will go right by our cottage. My plan is to flag down the shuttle to take us to P'town in the morning, enjoy the parade, sightsee until the crowds bother us, return to our cottage on the shuttle, hang out on the beach all afternoon, and watch the fireworks from the beach that evening.
My question: Is this a good plan? Is there something I should know about the shuttle or the location of the fireworks that would make any part of this unlikely or unpleasant? Is there anything to add to this plan that would make the day even better?
My family is small - just me, my husband, and our 8yo daughter. We will have our car, and we will use it to visit P'town on a less touristy day, but I figure the shuttle may be more convenient on July 4. Thanks in advance for any advice you have to offer!
