Driving from Plymouth to Cape Cod

We plan is to finish up in with the tourist scene in Plymouth around 5PM and drive to Cape Cod where we wil be spending a couple of days. Mid-July on a Wednesday. In looking at the map, the main route would be 3, but an alternate could be 3A. For one who has never been and may never be again, which of the two would you recommend? It looks like 3 is the main way and is shorter, but would 3A be more scenic? Thank you.

I'd go with Route 3. That far down, at that time of day, on a weekday, you won't encounter much traffic. Route 3 isn't without scenery.

It is a short and lovely drive along 3A between Plymouth and Sagamore Bridge. A number of places where you are driving along the shore. Well worth it.

Then once you cross the bridge drive along 6A versus Rt 6

Rt g takes you along the Old Kings Hwy for a scenic ride with shops, inns, restaurants and historic sea captains homes along the way
