I am coming to Boston in June, staying from Thursday June 27th until Monday July 1st in the downtown area. I will be travelling with my husband and two teenagers and am looking into the possibility of going to Cape Cod. I have seen that there are boats that can take you to Provincetown (from Boston) for the day. I will also have my car so I could drive there on Monday July 1st however I have heard that traffic can be really bad.
1. How long would it take on a Monday morning to drive from downtown Boston to Provincetown?
2. Is traffic likely to be bad all that week since July 4th is approaching?
3. If I only have one day on the Cape is Provincetown the best/most interesting destination?
4. If I decide to drive and stay on the cape over night which town would you recommend staying in?
We would be most interested in browsing around the towns, a little beach time and maybe renting bikes if there was a nice trail.
