Getting There

After crossing the Sagamore Bridge, head east on Route 6 or 6A. Once you pass straight through the Orleans rotary, you are in Eastham. Or fly into Hyannis or Provincetown.

The question of where to 'pahk the cah' becomes somewhat of an issue on the Outer Cape: Lodgings in Eastham, Truro, and Wellfleet all have ample free parking. Provincetown can be more of a challenge. Most inns there have space for one car per room.
