Hostels in Cape Cod are a little pricier, like other upscale areas on the East Coast. There are several towns, each with their own unique character. Provincetown is an artist colony on the extreme tip of the peninsula. Truro is a rural area just south of Provincetown. Eastham is considered the starting point for the Cap Cod National Seashore.

There are several ways to get around Cape Cod. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a scenic bicycle path that runs from Dennis to Wellfleet and passes through four other towns along the way.
