From JFK to the cape


Travelling in August for two weeks to Cape Cod from London to JFK. Staying in The Cove, West Yarmouth, for two weeks.

Question, what is the best way to travel from the airport (JFK) to West Yarmouth, train or coach? Any other alternatives to recommend?

Much appreciate all your help

If yon are staying on Cape Cod for two weeks, you will really need to rent a car. You may as well do that from NYC so you'll be able to get to and from the Cape.

I'd rent a car from JFK and drive up too.

We rented a car at JFK in Dec. and drove to Chatham in 5 hrs. (with snow!).

Quite easy....you can take the Air Train at JFK to pickup a rental car. Quick access to the highway, and you'll be on your way.

Most (all?) rental cars have GPS navigational systems, so no worries about getting lost, etc.

Hi there: Have you driven on the 'right' side of the road before? If not, consider taking the train from NYC into New Haven (or even Stamford) and renting your car from there. I think driving out of the City is awful (having done it more than once or twice).

Thanks for all the advice. Pre booked a car at JFK from Hertz & take a nice drive up to Great Yarmouth where we are staying at the The Cove for two weeks. Less than three weeks to go!!
