The guy at the info booth was very knowledgeable and the brief of the place was interesting. A small book/gift store. Upstairs is an observation deck overlooking the sea. too far away to walk but was accessible by driving closer. There was a very old movie about Marconi which was informative. Definitely needs updating.

The seashore is where the Pilgrims first landed. But, it doesn't look at all like it did then. Before the European settlers arrived, this seashore was filled with old growth trees. It didn't take long before the entire area was reduced to sand dunes. The National Park Service is slowly returning the preserve to it's natural state but it will... More

We only visited the Visitor's Center, but there was so much there. Our group consisted of myself, children (8-13), and my father (walks short distances, needs seating). First, we tried to obtain the 4th grade pass, but were told you needed to bring in a paper printed out from the website. But we are a military family, so with the... More

We stopped by the first Visitor Center to get our kids the junior ranger books and when I looked at the number of programs available, I was a little overwhelmed. We ended up taking them on a nature trail, checked out a lighthouse (which wasn't opened), and played on the beach. I brought their bathing suits but the surf was... More

The Cape Cod National Seashore is much more than the visitors center. The seashore is exactly that....spead along much of the outer Cape it offers visitors a large variety of scenery and experiences. My visiting friends from Germany were amazed at how simular the marshes of Eastham were to those where they summer. A fun experience for all.

Beautiful beach areas. The days we went it was not very crowded and I noticed a lot of older people. Not a place that seemed to have a lot of college kids. The parking cost $20 for the day so that could be the reason it was to crowded.

Interesting, educational, lovely spot. Most visitors will be there for the scenery, but there is also a small shop and short films such as Sands of Time, about the geologic history of Cape Cod. This year there is a beautiful exhibit of fabric arts with National Park related themes - definitely worth seeing.
