Hi there. We will be staying in Eastham for 3 nights at the end of Sept/beginning Oct after 10 days visiting Boston, NYC, etc. We'll be there for 3 1/2 - 4 days depending on what time we arrive (driving from Newport RI). We have chosen Cape Cod as an antidote to visiting cities and have booked self-catering accommodation in Eastham.
I am keen to hire a bike and use the old railroad cycle path while we are there, but wondered what else you would recommend to first time visitors? We plan to bring walking boots and get out and about a bit.
Although we will have a hire car, I've read that there are fees to park at beaches on Cape Cod and a permit may be required so information on this would be useful. I imagine from looking at maps that we can walk to a lot of places anyway??
Also, if we get inclement weather some suggestions on rainy day activities would be appreciated. We are not wedded to staying around the outer Cape btw, just thought it would be less busy/crowded.
Many thanks in advance.
