day trip from boston--possibilities?

I will be going to Boston in late April, early May for a 3 day weekend wiht friends. I have been to Boston several times and I love the city, but it is getting a bit old. I have never gone to the Cape or any locations like that and I'm wondering if Cape Code or any place like that would suit my needs as a nearby exotic day trip destination--one that is pretty scenic, filled with things to do, easy to get to via public transportation (and return to boston) and i won't need a car once i get there.

Any ideas?

Check out the web site : www.p-b.com. This is a bus site for Plymouth-Brockton bus lines . They have services to the cape from Logan, South Station, and Park Square in Boston. You will need to study the schedule carefully (weekend and weekdays vary along with the Boston pickup and drop off sites).

To meet your criteria follow the good advice you got on the Boston forum about going to PTown. The ferry is seasonal and may not be running that early though.
