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

What a view from the upstairs balcony! The dunes are so pretty, the ocean in the distance, the pilgrim monument on the horizon. What a great location to get a feel for the region. The inside exhibits are informative and the ranger who was present so interesting as she shared more info on nature, the whale activity, birds in the... More

A great place to watch the sun set in the quiet of nature, after a day of whale watching and calm bake eating. Head down to the beach to watch out for seals at dusk!

Climbing up a staircase gets you the best over-look of the dunes ever! The exhibits inside are interesting and will entertain the kids for 15 or 20 minutes. They even have a movie show.

A must see for families. Great place for a stop to learn more about the local history of the Cape. Learn about native plants, animals with wonderful narratives and displays. A small area to purchase items, mostly books, maps and puzzles. Gorgeous vista views.

Good place to check in when visiting the area. There's a landing where you can look out on the dunes.
