Drive through the oldest towns in America! Admire the old buildings! Gas stations, restrooms, & coffee/snacks are kinda few and far between.

This road is a very scenic, historical road that is the most interesting and pretty way to get to Provincetown. Full of old sea captain homes and interesting shops , this winding tour of old Cape Cod is the way to go.

Drive this beautiful stretch of Cape Cod, Sandwich to Orleans and experience the real Cape Cod. Many beautiful old Cape Cod Captains Houses that remind you of gentle times. I never get tired of this beautiful drive.

Taking this highway means you wind down around and through the cape with a lovely canopy of trees and fabulous, comfy Bed and Breakfasts along the way. I love taking this route when I'm not in a big hurry.

We have now driven route 6a several times and always find something interesting. You will see many old houses which were originally built by sea captains

Lovely road with pristine old homes from Victorian times, but good luck trying to find a gas station! Fuel and drink up beforehand, especially in high summer!

We were there in October which is the off-season so there were very few cars. We spent a few hours and didn't have many stops because many of the shops and restaurants were closed for the season.
