Written Directions

- Start in Wayland, MA.

- Head South on Rt 27, keep an eye out for signs through Sharon and Stoughton, as there are some turns made.

-

Scenery

This route is designed to provide a safe, sane, and less congested route to Cape Cod. Except for the deck around the bridges (which you cannot avoid), it's the best way to get down there.

Drive Enjoyment

Mostly fine secondary roads, with stops through towns. You can hop onto this route, if you are traveling from Boston, by getting on Rt 138 on the Boston Milton line, and following it down to Rt 106 East, where you can pick up on the directions. Once you get to Orleans on the Cape, and Rts 28, 6 and 6A merge, you'll be sitting in traffic until you get to Truro, and you can pull off 6, when 6A appears again, to lead you along the shore into Provincetown.

Tourism Opportunities

6A on the Cape, you go through some of the prettiest, and least touristy parts of Cape Cod. Yarmouth Port, Dennis, and Brewster have lots of spots to stop, and shop, or eat. If you are planning to go to Hyannis, Yarmouth, or Chatham; stay on 6A, and connect down on one of the smaller routes. While on the Cape, do what you can to stay off of 6 and 28. People drive like banshees on RT 6, and Rt 28 is one big strip mall, and you'll get carpal tunnel syndrome holding your clutch in. There's many campgrounds, and the Cape Cod National Seashore. If you camp on the Cape, be aware that there are tons of coyotes, especially around the Seashore, so lock away your food.

I'd like to make an amendment to the route. I'd say stick on rt 106 all the way until it meets/merges with 3a and then take 3a to the Sagamore bridge and you can stay on 6a or head to your Cape destination. 3a takes you down through "down town" Plymouth, expect a little congestion through all of the shops and restaurants, after that its just miles of scenic driving along the coast to the Cape.

I didn't find this route to be as scenic as I hoped. I came from Boston, so I hopped on the route starting from I-93 to Rt. 138. There were a lot of two lane roads, of mostly good quality. However, not much scenery. I much prefer the Rt. 1A up north in Cape Ann.
