The wife and I have decided to take one day out of our Boston holiday just to get the flavor of the Cape, as we've never been. We must return the same evening since our Boston hotel's prepaid and I'm too cheap to pay for two rooms and leave one vacant. This will happen on Tuesday or Wednesday, September 12th or 13th.
Our choices are the fast ferry to P'Town and spend the day there on foot, or drive down and visit the Cape maybe as far as Chatham. If we go to P'Town, we can arrive as early as 9:30 and leave as late as 7:30 PM with Boston Harbor Cruises. If we drive, we can probably get the same 8 or 10 hours on the Cape.
Our objective: walk on a beach (not swim), see pretty scenery, interesting architecture, unique shops. Leisurely paced, not seeking athletic challenges or thrill seeking.
Which would you prefer the ferry or driving, and why?
Suggestions for P'Town activities and eateries?
If we drive, where should we go and eat? Suggest an itenerary.
