New York to Cape Cod

Just looking at some travel plans and was hoping someone could chime in on travel along the coast from New York up to Cape Code area and possibly a visit to Martha's Vineyard. Never been this route before but have a little time to spare and looking for ideas.

Hi Dave, If you're coming from the city, through Connecticut I-95 is probably your best bet. It's close enough to the shore to allow easy off & on to see a few sights. Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods are easily accessed if you are inclined to go to the casinos. Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium are also easy off and on. Mystic KOA is a convienient place to stay for the casinos and the seaport. Through Rhode Island you could get off of 95 on Rt. 138 and go through Newport to see the mansions, but find a campground, as the streets in Newport can be tight. From Newport you can take Rt 114 North to 195 and on out to the cape. If you have time to go up to Plymouth, there is a lot of history and you can see the famous Plymouth Rock.

As an alternative through Rhode Island, after Westerly, Rt. 1 is not a bad ride and it will give you access to various shore points. It takes you to Rt. 138 just before the Newport bridge and you could continue on from there.

Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip.

Did some traveling in the Newport area in a F350 when I had it. Tight, but doable. Parking is definitely a premium. We left the 5er in Mass. at my brother's house and stayed with son attending NWC.

What we did find was a campground called Fisherman's Memorial down by the Block Island Ferry. We drove through and were impressed at the spaces. Mentioned it to someone else and they stayed there and said it was very nice. You can "bird's eye view," using maps.live.com. It is about 20 miles from Newport. There is another CG that is closer, but no pets, and is close to water. It's at the Second Beach (I think that is also the name of the CG)

Newport is a great place and the Mansion's tour is extremely good. We purchased the tickets and then went to each one individually at our convenience. Parking is good at the mansions.

Go by the warf and get lobsters for $8 each and throw them on the grill. Umm! Good!

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Following 95 to 195 east will take you to Wareham, Ma. the gateway to Cape Cod. Things to do in Bristol County, MA. In Fall River, Ma. they have Battleship Cove. There you can tour the Battleship Massachusetts, A PT boat, ( similiar to PT 109) , a submarine, and a destroyer. Just down the road in New Bedford, Ma. is the Seamen's Bethol,( Moby Dick fame), The Whaling National Park, the Whaling Museum which has won national awards for its displays of the whaling era. The museum houses the largest ship model in the world. They have the 1:4 scale model of the Whaling Bark Lagoda. You can walk on the ship and the details are fantastic. The ship model was built and then the building constructed around it. It's only a 15 minute ride from Fall River to New Bedford. Route 195 goes right through both of these communities. Any questions feel free to contact me. Yes New Bedord is my home town. Tons to see in this area before you go and enjoy the Cape.
