I know Late October/early November is NOT the BEST time to visit Cape Cod but my husband is doing the Cape Cod marathon on October 29th and since we have never visited that area, we thought we would take a week and explore!
We will be staying in Falmouth for the weekend for sure - that's where the marathon is based out of and my husband expects to want/need a day to prep and a day to recover without having to change hotels.
We plan on doing Martha's Vineyard for a day, which we can do from Falmouth as I understand it (but where do we have to go if we want to take our car over?).
At the end of the week, we plan to drive to Boston and spend one night there.
That leaves 3-4 nights in between. My question is: should we stay in Falmouth and travel daily from there to various destinations or should we find an alternate, more centralized/convenient location?
Also, what are the trop 3 MUST-DO things other than Martha's Vineyard and whale watching (weather permitting - I think I saw that their las ttrip is October 30th so we just might catch that!) in the area?
Any recommendation is appreciated!
