Cape Cod Take Route 6A To See Old Cape Cod

On June 15th 1950, the State of Massachusetts opened the first section of highway known as the Mid-Cape Highway running from the Sagamore Bridge to approximately 3 miles west of Hyannis. Today Route 6 extends all the way to Provincetown. What is now known as Route 6A, was the original Route 6.

The “new” Route 6, although shorter in many instances, deprives the traveler of many of the finest features of the Cape. The Mid Cape Highway is just like any other highway and a picture taken there could look like it was taken anywhere.

On Route 6A, which is the old route, the traveler feels the real spirit of the Cape, the earliest homes, the old towns and villages, the big old hardwood trees, the waterfront in places and the millions of other fascinating old Cape Cod places and sights.

So, if you are not in a rush and wish to soak up a little old Cape Cod, take Route 6A, aka “the scenic route”.
