Cape Ann, Cape Cod or Providence RI

Jump to last reply

As I have posted in another message, my husband and I will be in Boston for 4 nights i June. We currently have 2 nights booked in Cape Cod but I'm thinking maybe that's not our best option. DH had knee replacement surgery in March. While he will be done with rehab when we go I don't expect him to be able to do as much walking as he used to be able to do (basically he could walk all day and not tire out). Having read some posts on Cape Cod I realized to take a ferry to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard that we would be without a car and renting a bike is not an option for us at this time. We are looking for quaint seaside villages, great views of the ocean - not necessarily to spend a day at the beach, but to spend some time on the shores. Good seafood is a must. We would like to go whale watching but can do that out of Boston if we don't make it to P'Town. Unless there's whale watching in Cape Ann? I throw in Providence RI because I saw a great special on a hotel and also because it's near Newport.

Should we choose Cape Ann should I keep the hotel in Boston for a few extra days and make Cape Ann a day trip or is it too far for day trips? If we choose Providence is there the same feeling (quaint New England seaside villages) and is 2 days long enough, too long, etc.

Thank you!!
