We have 3 young boys (3, 6 and 7 years) and are looking to visit Cape Cod at the end of June. I know that vacation rentals are probably the most affordable option, but we don't like the idea of being tied down to one place for 7 days straight.
We were even thinking of breaking the trip up a bit by visiting and staying close to Boston for the first night. So we might be actually staying on the cape for only 3-5 days.
We are definitely beach people and are looking forward to taking the boys to the calm (bay side) beaches to explore the tidal pools, and maybe even taking them whale watching.
So! My question is...if we're going to be exploring different parts of the Cape, should we bother to find a place close to one beach? Or should we stay somewhere like Days Inn Hyannis, which is kind of central, where we can get a room (albeit smallish) for under $100 a night?
What are your expert insights? ;)
