Planning an 11 day trip to Newport R.I./Martha's Vineyard/Cape Cod/Salem, MA.

Flying into Providence, R.I. Plan to view mansions on afternoon of Day 1, and Day 2.

For Day 3, I need advice. We would like to go to M.Vineyard. We will have a rental car, of course, and I would like input as to what would be the best scenario for us to ferry over to MV, and back. We plan to visit the Cape in the days following the trip to MV. Should we ferry out of New Bedford, Falmouth or Hyannis? Is there any way to ferry over with the car from one town, and ferry back to a different town (to MV from New Bedford and away from MV to Hyannis, for example)? Might be cost prohibitive, and maybe the difference in drive time is not that much of a factor. Is seasickness a factor on some ferries/waterways, and not on others? Also, should we plan to stay over in MV if we have to catch the ferry half way into Day 3? Or is a half day enough time to be there?

Day 4 -6: Visit the Cape. Is the JFK Museum a must see?

Day 7: Drive to Plymouth, MA. What would you suggest we not miss here? Can Plimoth Plantation, Pilgrim Memorial SP, Myles Standish Monument, John Alden House all be done in a day or 1.5 days? Are all of these worthy stops?

Day 8: Finish sightseeing in Plymouth, if necessary. Drive to Salem, MA

Day 9-10: Sightsee in Salem.

Day 11: Drive to Logan International, Flight home mid-day. WHEW!
