I went to the National Seashore in December and it was awesome. Luckily the weather was in the mid 40s (7c) with no wind. It was cloudy but spectacular, I was the only one on the beaches and was making my own tracks. Very peaceful and I loved the solitude! The sound of the waves and the fresh air was... More

The pilgrims may have been the first Europeans to sight this jewel of the Atlantic coast, but here we are revelling in the same topography, of pristine beaches, dunes and wildlife. Beach-front properties are at such a premium, so as to preclude even dreaming about it. What with most of the US coastline devoured by cities, hotels and beach resorts,... More

This is the place to go in New England during 3 seasons! Something for nearly everyone; history, activities, eateries, scenery, clean, life-guarded beaches with now-protected sand dunes, bike trails, hiking, artist colonies and shows, community theater performances, bird sanctuary, a broad variety of lodging alternatives, fishing, seal-watching, boating, and touring historic locations. Traffic during the prime summer months can be... More

Coast guard beach with the seals, 2 other seashore beaches within 10 minutes, Three Sisters light houses. No shells on the beaches, just pretty rocks. Stop in the Pard visitor office. Lots of Info. Self guided walking light house tour, covers half the coast.

Drove from Providence, RI, to Provincetown at the farthest, northern tip of Cape Cod and return in one day attempting to take in all the historic locations. A very pleasant drive through interesting countryside. At Provincetown the bird-watching was excellent. Had a good look around Hyennis Port and the surrounding area. One of those Everest sort of days!

This is a very beautiful place, but apparently we need more signs to help us appreciate it. Control, control. Whatever happened to letting people enjoy.

The beach clean and goes for miles. My wife and I love it. A good place to spend a few hours and enjoy nature. We will come back and recommend.

Our tour of the dunes was a highlight of our time on Cape Cod! We hadn't planned on fitting this in, but it was too cold to kayak, and I'm so glad we got to experience this one of a kind area.

Having been in and around Boston, I had the opportunity to visit Cape Cod. Driving to the Cape was breathtaking, stopping at a lighthouse, and going down onto the beach, which incidently was a long way down at this point! Once we arrived at the Cape the first thing that struck me was the different coloured wooden houses. I would... More

We went to Marconi portion of the National Seashore and were blown away by the views. The sand cliffs are incredible and the ocean seems to just go for miles. We saw many seals in the shallow water and a variety of sea birds.
