As always, those three holiday weekends that definesSummer: Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day, mean extra trains are running to accommodate those of us who love taking advantage of those three-day Cape Cod weekends.
So grab your furry four-legged friend and bicycle (because yes, there's a rack that holds up to 50 bikes), for this easy-peasy travel experience.

The CapeFLYER has a cafe, too, so you can enjoy anything from candy bars to lobster rolls during your travels.  I mean let's be honest, you can pack a snack or go all-in with Blonde On The Run Catering café, because you're on vacation, after all.
