What a magnificent gem! Beautiful views, historical landmarks, hiking, bicycling, lighthouses and beaches. Everything is free with a National Park Pass. Most things are free without a Park Pass. There are two visitor centers with museums and gift stores and free moves. There are Ranger Programs for adults and children. Unfortunately one must navigate the traffic to get there.

We stopped at both visitor centers and both offer interesting information about the park. Very friendly and helpful rangers at both centers. We drove and stopped at many of the different areas to take in the views, walk along the beach, and have a nice picnic lunch. We also were lucky enough to see several seals playing in the water at Head of the Meadows Beach. Highland lighthouse was not open when we were there due to renovations. Highly recommend Old Harbor Life-Saving Station Museum. Lots of interesting information and the staff was also very knowledgeable and helpful.

We stopped at both visitors centers (Salt Pond and Province Lands) and completed the Junior Ranger Badges (ages 12&9). We enjoyed hiking the salt pond trail, learning about the Cape Cod through videos and the museum, and also spied whales from the shore. What a beautiful part of the country.

A fantastic autumn day by the seashore. The weather is wonderful so what better to do than picnic on the beach. Suffers and seals in full view

Mikes and miles of gorgeous beaches. The ocean is beautiful and the sand feels amazing between your toes. Plenty of space to explore, picnic, relax, swim.

Made multiple visits to CCNS during our week in the area - from PTown to Eastham. Despite the ranger stations being closed, the staff were still accessible and helpful. Lots to see and do here - from homesteads and old buildings, to natural wonders. Loved it.

We traveled up Cape Cod stopping several times at various beaches and visitor centers of the Cape Cod National Seashore. In a word it is breathtaking! Beautiful sand dunes and beaches as well as wild and pristine areas that seem untouched by man. Do not miss this!

We were at the seashore outside Provincetown. It was beautiful, well kept, great views from the visitor center area as well as from the beach. We weren't there for the beach, but had we been, we would have been very pleased.

Such an amazing trip to the Cape cod National Seashore. We visited Nauset Light, Three Sisters Light, Coastguard Beach, Provincetown Visitor Center, Salt Pond, Salt Pond Visitor Center, and Highland Light. Only complaint of our trip was that Highland Light was completely torn down for construction and there was literally nothing to see.
