Rent a bicycle from the bicycle stores in town and set out through the Province Lands bike trails. You can take your time or go more quickly--the trails are well-paved and give a nice workout.

Beautiful! National Seashore, views of the ocean and the dunes from the observation deck. Interpretive displays explaining the dunes, the changing Cape and the Pilgrim's stay at Cape Cod

I almost always stop at the visitor centers when traveling because sometimes they will tell you of a fantastic out of the way place to go. They had several films playing about the Cape, had a good detailed map, as well as giving you 10 things to do while there. Go upstairs and get a great view of the ocean,... More

It's a great place, with great views, several small films to watch; and they will answer your questions on birds, sea life, things to do, places to walk etc.

This is similar to the Visitor Center in Eastham, but a nice place to stop and get out of the Commercial Str. crowds in P-town. Nice views and history of land.

Go see "Wooden Ships and Men of Iron" or "The Voice of Cape Cod". Fine free rainy day activity for an hour.

Breathtaking views that remind you how amazing nature is. Go to the visitors center and take in the lookout from all angles. It's worth it!

The visitors center here is pretty small, but we really enjoyed going up to the lookout. The kids liked that the binoculars were available for free, so we could get a closer look at the large sailing vessels. There is a small gift shop and staff available to answer any questions.

This is a multi-level visitor's center and ranger station, with an educational outlook. The center itself closes at 5:00, but the outer decks and bathrooms are separate and your visit can be prolonged if you wish. From the upper deck you can look out to the Atlantic and watch planes land, as well as have a 360 degree view of... More
