capeanntransporation

Such an easy, fun, and inexpensive ride to get around town AND, total bonus, to Good Harbor Beach, without having to pay to park!  Get dropped off at the foot bridge as early as 10:17 and then the trolley comes back every hour up until 5:17 pm.  Many other fun stops along the way.  See below.  Ummm….and an all day pass costs $3 with children under 5 Free.  And, unless things have changed, if you are riding the trolley from Stage Fort Park, they allow you to park there for FREE.  Total score.
