We enjoyed visiting many of the quaint villages of Cape Cod, were happy to be visiting a friend who lives there, ate wonderful food but one of our favorite memories is picnicing here and taking a couple of trails. It was something of a relief to see uninterrupted and indelveloped natural landscape. The vistor's center provides some great views. Well... More

Get to the beach early or you may not get a parking space. Coast Guard beach has a shuttle from the parking area to the beach. The water is COLD but the waves are great and the scenery is beautiful. We brought our bikes and went for a bike ride after a day on the a beach.

The seashore is beautiful. The park rangers at the visitor centers were very helpful, a good place to stop if you have not been here before. They also run various activities that may be of interest. Like most national parks they have a gift shop. However, be forewarned that the water can be cold. We went in August and the... More

This large beautiful coastline is worth the visit. The wild life, seals that swim 150 ft off shore and very tall dunes. Issue with this park is it is the most unfriendly to guests driving in. Parking is limited or just not available. Some lots have shuttles but those have other issues. NPS please address.

During our visit to the Cape we especially enjoyed National Seashore beaches of Marconi Beach and the Coast Guard beach. The Visitor's Center at Salt Pond is worth a visit too...we hit it three times. Once for our permit for a fire on the beach...it was memorable.

This is the stretch of land that represents the forbearers of our national heritage. (This is where the pilgrims on the Mayflower spotted land!) More than 4 million people visit here yearly, making it one of the country’s most popular national parks. If you’re lucky enough to find a summer rental cottage within the park itself – DO IT! The...

It was just wonderful, and I have gone to some of the world's greatest beaches on every continent. The water was just the right type of cold, and the beach was long, sweeping, and had wonderful sand. We will surely come back, despite the horrendous traffic.

Just a few minutes drive from downtown Provincetown is a pretty beach. $15 for the day. They had a nice changing area, showers, restrooms, concession area. Lifeguards were on duty and the beach access was close to parking. I noticed two people being dropped off by taxi.
