what to do with a 16 year old?!

We are thinking of heading over to Toronto and Niagara for 5 nights next July, then 2 nights in Boston before 4 or 5 nights in Cape Cod and then our last 5 nights in New York and then home. The Cape Cod part is for relaxation but also to see wildlife etc. My daughter loves marine life and we would like to do some whale and dolphin watching and anything else that you guys can recommend.

Is Provincetown the place to stay or where else would you recommend? Should we drive from Boston or fly as I hear the roads can be very busy at that time of year. Do we need a car to tour around the Cape? Many thanks in advance!

Some people can have a fine Provincetown-based vacation without a car. Take the ferry from Boston, rent bikes. The town is very compact and walkable. Beaches and other attractions are easily reached by bike.

Other people might get a little stir-crazy with that arrangement and want to have a car for increased mobility and to get to other areas of the Cape. If you do decide to drive from Boston, the traffic isn't too bad during the week, but can be awful on weekends.
