Don't miss it! Free! Be sure to go to the top - you often see whales from there. Great view of the historic dune shacks and so much more.

The park rangers employed here are eager to share their wealth of knowledge about the area and its beauty. We were given much valuable info. and a few great maps, and even stayed for two short films,... More

We rode our bikes from P-town to the visitor center - great ride, fun and beautiful. The weather was great, ride awesome and the visitor center was filled with fun facts and purchase items. It was also a welcome stop for fresh water (free) in the center. worth a visit.

The Province Land Visitor's Center is a great spot to pick up maps, guides and tips on making the most of your visit to the Cape Cod National Seashore. It also has a fabulous lookout from atop the building which offers great views of the sand dunes and distant coast line. It's worth dropping by even if you don't have... More

A helpful ranger gave us a map and highlighted drives, sites and beaches based on our interest. The museum displayed artifacts of early life on Cape Cod. Films show daily on multiple topics, including the changing geology of the Cape. A great start to the National Seashore area.

This is a good place to start when you explore the National Seashore area, to get oriented and collect some helpful information. There are some exhibits but they aren't very extensive. Go to the upstairs viewing deck for some very nice views. I'm rating this average not because there's anything wrong with it, but because I have been to dozens... More

Great view from roof! The rangers will provide useful trail and beach information, including how to find lesser used trails.

We brought water bottles in our holders and I... More
