It's an... More

Located near the National Seashore beaches like Nauset and Marconi, this is close by and should be a stop on your list of things to do.

Lots of parking and many talks and exhibits in the Visitor Center through the summerand fall for visitors interested in the natural area of the Cape Cod National... More

Begin your visit to Cape Cod National Seashore with a stop at the visitors center, where you can get a map of the area, the beaches, the trails, and view a short film on how Cape Cod was formed and is constantly changing. M Rangers can answer your questions and you can view the museum, exhibits, and use the clean... More

I was very happy with the Salt Pond Visitors center. We asked where the best place to watch the seals were and they recommended going to Coast Guard beach & we were not disappointed at all with this recommendation. There was a small museum there as well about the history of Whaling from the area.Also well kept bathrooms & grounds.

Well worth investing an hour or so to understand the Cape from formation to the present day. Be sure to view the film in the theater and find out how this amazing land feature was formed and continues to evolve. Great views from the center of one of the larger kettle ponds and there are areas to just relax and... More
