There's only a seasonal, weekend train from one town on the Cape to Boston. There are private bus companies that serve a wider area.

The T has the commuter rail, which is similar to the LIRR. The map on the mbta website will show what towns it serves.

You should check out Salem. You'd have the young people, nightlife, access to Boston via train and would be within a short drive of the North Shore beaches.

Try Gloucester. Great town. Commuter rail to Boston. Salem too.

Down on the south side of Cape Cod, around the islands, and along the south coasts of MA and RI the water is a lot milder than it is most places north of the Cape. The water down there isn't exactly tropical, but in most places is warm enough that you can actually get in and comfortably stay in the water for a while.

True, Draw a diagonal at the bend in Chatham and pretty much everything to the N of there is colder vs. warmer to the south. If the OP is commuting to Boston however, anywhere down there isn't too feasible however. Generally the S Shore is a tad warmer than N of Boston (although very negligible), with up by Salisbury and Hampton being the coldest.
