GETTING THERE AND AROUND
Boston’s Logan airport is the best arrival point. There are hourly buses to Hyannis, transport hub of the Mid Cape, and a good express ferry running to Provincetown. To get to the two main islands, the Steamship Authority runs regular ferry trips for foot passengers from several ports; cars must be booked in advance.
The simplest and best way to explore the Cape is by car; it’s a two-hour drive from Logan airport to the port of Hyannis, three or more to Provincetown. Hertz has an airport branch with very fast pick-up and returns when you sign up for the (free) Gold Plus membership. One week’s hire via hertz.com costs from around US$393.
