You can take a bus down - Plymouth & Brockton or Peter Pan

a day trip to Cape Cod is useless without a car... At most you can pick one town and figure how to get there and back (like Hyannis or Falmouth) but you really need a car to get a feel for the cape.

So many people what to "see" the Cape. I often wonder what they want to see. There is a lot of ground to cover. There are some beautiful beaches, some quaint towns, there are some pretty ugly typical suburban areas, there is the very funky and interesting Provincetown, there are traffic-clogged built-up roads, there is of course the Hyannis/Kennedy attraction. As bilmin09 says, you really can't just take a bus there, get out and look around. That said, a ferry trip to Provincetown is worthwhile when possible because Provincetown is worth a visit in itself. Is all of the Cape like Provincetown? No.

Thanks, Cabinet. Why don't you "stash" that and we can bring it back out when anybody asks. Or maybe that should be one of the Standard Questions?

Yes I think Cabinet has captured a 'great answer' for this often asked question!
