Day trips to Cape Cod, Concord, and Lexington require a rental car, as they are not otherwise easily reached. So, if you are renting a car, here are a few tips to consider. Make sure you have detailed directions or a GPS as Boston can be very confusing for drivers unfamiliar with the city. Also, rent a smaller car instead of a SUV, parking is tight and expensive.
