This road is a slower and more gentle means of going along the Cape from Sandwich to Orleans, than the hectic Route 6. Whenever possible, we took the little detours to the beaches and harbors. The whole trip took nearly a day and we had...More

We took the convertible on a drive here. Even though it was a cloudy day, we still had fun. The speed limit averages 40 mph, but I would not have wanted to go faster anyway. This is a great drive.

Actually a well paved state highway but speed limit is averages 40 mph. Old homes, theaters , beaches close to road. Original road on Cape Cod before rte 6. Great ride in a sports car in summer, smooth slow curves.
