With some great day trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes good sense. Without one, it wouldn’t be half as easy to soak up everything that Popponesset Beach, 45 miles away, has to offer. Among the first stops you make here should be Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cape Cod Children’s Museum and Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Don’t skip Manomet Beach either! Just 30 miles away, Plimoth Plantation, Pinehills Golf Club and Plymouth Farmers’ Market are essential stops here.
