58mi / 93km

This morning you collect your rental car and say goodbye to the big city. Heading south, your destination is the town of Sandwich in Cape Cod, which will be your base for the next two nights. On route, we highly recommend a stop in the town of Plymouth, home to the Plimoth Patuxet Museums, where each museum brings to life the history of Plymouth Colony and the Indigenous homeland. When you arrive into Sandwich, you will be greeted by one of the most picturesque towns on Cape Cod. It boasts beautiful old homes, some of which have been converted into inns, charming shops and restaurants. If you enjoy the outdoors, you’ll love Sandwich, home to many pristine beaches including East Sandwich Beach, Sandy Neck Beach, and Town Neck Beach, all offering fun in the sun and water activities.

After breakfast, you journey further into Cape Cod, to the town of Chatham where you spend a further two nights. Chatham is located at the southeast tip of Massachusetts and halfway down the 75-mile-long Cape Cod Peninsula. This seaside town is blessed with beautiful scenery and offers a diverse range of activities. If you like to get outdoors, Chatham is home to many Nature Trails and Parks for biking and hiking. If golf is your passion, there are beautiful golf courses overlooking the Atlantic. If you enjoy visiting historic places and museums, there are some of the best-preserved homes and buildings in the area. Venturing further afield, Chatham offers the perfect base from which to explore the northern tip of Cape Cod. The quirky town of Provincetown is less than an hour’s drive away and highly recommend as the location from which to take a Whale Watch Cruise. The three hour tours offer a wide spectrum of educational tools that go beyond the average boat trip, designed to enhance your awareness of whales, other marine life, and the marine habitat that surrounds Provincetown.

Today you will make the short drive to Hyannis, where you leave your car at a long-stay car park (paid for locally) and head over to Martha’s Vineyard (Oak Bluff) on a passenger ferry. Once you arrive on Martha’s Vineyard you will independently make your way to the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, your centrally located base for the next two nights. To help you aclimatise, on your first day on the island, we have included an All Island Tour leaving from Oak Bluff, which is less than seven miles from Edgartown. This three hour tour covers many of the island’s top attractions including the Aquinnah Cliffs, East Chop Lighthouse, the Menemsham fishing village and so much more. Following the tour, you can explore for yourself. Beautiful beaches ring the island’s outer edge, while the interior is crisscrossed with many biking and walking trails accentuated by natural and cultivated foliage and flowers. Rest assured you’ll never be short of things to see, do and explore on this strikingly beautiful island.

To help enhance your Nantucket experience we have included a one and half hour Island Bus Tour, where you will enjoy a fully narrated historic exploration, covering close to 65% of the island. Stops include The Old Mill, “Sconset” Village with its rose-covered cottages, Low Beach, Sankaty Head Lighthouse, Cranberry bogs, the Nantucket moors and lots more.

Today you will head back to the port, where you will board your final passenger ferry back to Hyannis on Cape Cod. After picking up your car, you’ll make the short 20 mile journey Falmouth for your final two nights. Falmouth is another one of Cape Cod’s treasures, located in the southwestern part of the Cape which encompasses several small villages, 68 miles of coastline and 10 beaches. Whether its boating, windsurfing, fishing, jet skiing or simply soaking up the sun which tempts you, there is something for everyone on the beaches of Falmouth. We highly recommend visiting either Chapoquoit Beach or Old Silver Beach to catch one of the stunning sunsets. For outdoor adventures, you may choose to hike or bike along many of the paths and trails which offer a natural setting of salt marsh, cranberry bogs, ponds, and woodlands. One further recommendation would be to make time to stroll along Falmouth’s tree-lined Main Street, where you’ll find quaint shops filled with unique gifts and delightful restaurants to suit every palate; from international restaurants to fresh fish and seafood cuisines.
