Driving from SE PA To Cape Cod - alternatives to 95!

Hi, On Sunday we had another 12 hour drive on 95, crawling through CT to get home to the Philadelphia area. Our gps app (Google?) kept saying 95 was the fastest route, but there's something to be said for moving...

Alternatives? The Merritt can be a bear. Taipan Zee to 84 is better but longer. Anyone do back roads? Comments? Options?

Thanks! Susan

Have you ever tried I-287 up to I-87 to I-84 east? Follow I-84 all the way up to the Mass Turnpike (I-90) than I-495 down to the Cape. (reverse for the trip home, obviously!) About a 6 hour drive without traffic.

Thanks! I have tried that route, and the traffic is better, but it seems a lot longer...
