Suggestions on places to stop


I am planning a trip to Boston/Cape Cod next spring and have already booked my accommodations.

I will be driving from

1. Providence RI, to Provincetown

2. Provincetown to Falmouth

What are some 'must sees' on the drive. We are ok with a longer drive with stops along the way :)

On the way down to Falmouth we are hoping to stop in Hyannis to take a quick boat tour to see the Kennedy compound.

Rte 6 is the main road to Ptown

Along route 6 you have the Cape Cod National Seashore. Lots of things to see. The visitors center is in Eastham. Stop there for info. There are walking trails and scenic outlooks at places like the Marconi telegraph site and Highland Light (light house) in Truro.

The Audubon reserve is also on route 6, Wellfleet I think.

Off of route 6 there are pretty town centers in Orleans and Wellfleet.

I'm not sure that I understand your question. Provincetown is at the far end of the Cape. Falmouth is at the beginning of the Cape.

Where will you be staying? For how long?

Cape Cod...

Is there some reason why you are going to Provincetown before Falmouth and Hyannis?

Wellfleet is well worth a turn off of Route 6. Also the back road of Truro off of Route 6 which is what Cape Cod was like many years ago.
