The drive there is very scenic. Once you arrive, there are a number of very interesting and informative exhibits that describe the history of Provincetown as well as its geological origins. The outside viewing deck has spectacular views of the surrounding forest, dunes and beaches.

We randomly showed up, and found ranger nick about to lead a junior ranger parking lot nature tour! we jumped in...and he was one of the best educators. I train teachers, so I am super critical...and he did every awesome teaching technique in environmental and outdoor ed possible...he got to their level, he engaged them in what could be boring,...

Great place to see some Cape Cod history including a cool short movie about the early days. They have an observation deck too where you can see the ocean and lots of dunes.

Loved the visitor center views of the north shore, sand dunes, and whale watching. We could even see whales through the free binoculars on the observation deck. Great interpretation by the Rangers and just enough information to get us started before we began exploring on bikes!

Situated off of Route 6 one can learn a lot about the Sand Dunes and outer Cape Cod. The drive back to the sand dunes took about 10 minutes. Who knew walking in sand was do hard. The first 100 feet was a steep vertical climb and it wasn't easy. It offered an opportunity to look at how far you... More

The observation deck is the main attraction here. Equipped with stationary binoculars (free), the expansive deck affords sweeping views of the dunes and beach, as well as the surrounding area. Nature exhibits, a small gift shop and theater are located inside. Take the time to watch the historical film in the theater, it really gives a nice history of the... More

Second best view in Provincetown. Of course the Pilgrim Monument is 400 feet higher! It has the usual NPS displays of the local flora and fauna. Displays also demonstrate man's devastation of nature clear back in the 1700's. Best part is the observation deck. Watched a couple of planes come and go at the Provincetown Airport from above. The observation... More

Well not really, but you can see a lot. The Visitor Center has a deck/viewing platform on the second level from which you can see the ocean, Provincetown, and various beaches. It's always fun to visit, either during the day or at night. I travel off-season and the center hasn't been open she. I've been there, but no matter. The... More
