Q about Marconi Wireless Station

I know it's not much to see at this site, but I'm interested in all thing technological so we want to stop off.

Is there decent beach-strolling from here? I've heard you MUST do some beach strolling along the National Seashore, so I figured 'kill two birds' and start here.

Is that feasible?

The views from the top of that overlook near the model of the Marconi station are breathtaking. It's the highest point on Cape Cod and the sweeping vista is gorgeous. The beach isn't too shabby either! Enjoy!

I agree- this is a great thing to do, and there are a few things to see (not quite a museum, but more than just a plaque). This is a truly gorgeous spot on the National Seashore. Don't know if this would interest you also, but up at Race Point in Provincetown (the end point of the National Seashore) if you walk out to the beach there, there is a cool little historical museum in a weather beaten old house, about the old shipwreck lifesaver stations that were up and down the East Coast. This is a haunting little slice of history -- technological? Maybe a little bit (how they would get out to the shipwrecks, etc.).

Also, the parking lot is adjacent to the White Cedar Swamp Trail, which is worth exploring.
