Who Should Take a 3-Day Trip to Cape Cod?

We want everyone to experience 3 days of Cape Cod bliss. However, a weekend trip is most convenient for those who reside in nearby cities and towns. For example, Cape Cod is only an hour and a half drive from Boston. This makes Cape Cod an ideal road trip from Boston. Plan to start your 3-day getaway with a road trip?
