“Sun-Sea-Sand=Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

You must go here but particularly the Fort Hill area on the National Seashore. I don't want to take any of the surprise out of this area because that would spoil your visit. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with the visit. I will spill the beans a bit and say the vista is unbelievable- just go!

“Cape Cod at its Finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Cape Cod National Seashore has something for everyone, from hiking at beautiful Fort Hill to open ocean swimming at Marconi and Nauset Beaches, to biking the trails around the Salt Pond Visitor Center. A great family destination!

“My Favourite US Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Just returned from a week at Truro in the heart of Cape Cod National Seashore region. If you are interested in superb scenery, outdoor activities, top class seafood, and the joys of nature, then this is the destination. Started the trip with a visit to the Salt Pond Visitor Center, Eastham, for an overview of the history and amenities in the area. Rented bikes and cycled a good portion of the 20+ mile Cape Cod Rail Trail through the heart of the Cape. Tried several of the walking trails - our favourite was the Great Island hike on the shores of Cape Cod Bay. Wandered and shopped in the sleepy town of Wellfleet, and savoured the wonderful seafood at Mac's Shack. Visited the Highland Light lighthouse and watched a video of the whle lighthouse being moved inland from the edge of the outer coast cliff. Much, much more to savour in this great destination.

“Lovely park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Amazing views, definitely worth the trip. Went to a lighthouse, very interesting & guide was informative. Visited several beaches, each worth the trip. A little cold at times, so bring a jacket.
