If you've arrived in the area for the first time, check out the Visitor Center. It's free. Lots of basic information about Cape Cod. Nice gift shop.

We drove here as part of our weekend gateway in Cape Cod. Didn't really prepare for what to do in the park so we just followed the road and drove to the end of the shore...both beaches were closed for access but ended up seeing Nauset lighthouse and three sisters and learned about the history of lighthouse!

This is a great place to stop by to get more information about visiting the Cape Cod National Seashore. The staff are very friendly and provide lots of advice for good trails, and provide maps. There are some nice hikes on the site too - lots to explore! There is also some educational programming, and a lovely gift shop.

I was not overall impressed with Cape Cod but this is a nice place to stop on the drive to PTown. We were there on a rainy day so we didn't get to see the trails but the visitors center is nice. They have a small but interesting museum. The gift shop is nice and the rangers are very friendly.... More

We've been here a couple of times and they have a nice information desk, small museum and gift shop (with many nice Cape Cod items). Definitely recommend for first timers. They also have nice restroom facilities if you need to stop before going out to one of the beaches.

We were on our way to some attractions in the Outer Cape and decided to drop by at this Visitor Center just for a short rest stop. We ended up spending more than an hour. The view of Salt Pond from the center was simply magnificent. There is an auditorium that shows short documentaries as well as a small museum.... More

A gateway and great introduction to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Walking trails, museum, displays, movies, outdoor ampitheather for music and talks, they do things all year round!. Friendly and helpful staff

A great way to get out in the marshes, a completely different eco-system than the beaches in the area. Wear a hat, sunblock, and insect spray. Sandy and flat in some areas but a couple of bridges with steps and a hill or two.
