There's a lot to see and do here. Beaches, lighthouses, walking and biking trails, wildlife, history and the Atlantic Ocean. Do a bit of research before you go. The NPS website is a good place to start. You can even drive on some (very limited) areas of beach for a fee and with the right vehicle. This is a wonderful... More

Wow, what a great sight you get here. Lots of coastline and even seals. Beautiful homes and a great drive. The water was low tide so you could see the seals on the little islands.soft sand and an amazing sunset.

The Cape is well known. The seaside scenery is fantastic. We went on a ranger led hike and she gave us excellent history and present day, with a good mix of nature and history. Enjoyed all points of interest we went to.

Great view of the seashore, but even more. Visit the lighthouses (the guide will tell you where to drive) and not only are they beautiful, they will give you a flavor of the history (and danger) of sailing before modern navigational aids.

Our motorcoach group was absolutely in awe of the beauty of the National Seashore. Great welcome center, truly a stop that should not be missed!

As a lover of the National Park Service, this is the very reason we found ourselves in Cape Cod. The visitors centers are well laid out and maintained. There are trails for everyone, both foot and bike. Lot's of beach access and easy to navigate in the off season (we visited post Labor Day). If you're here during the busy... More

Not all of the beaches have bathrooms. But this is an amazing beach. Lots of big seals playing in the waves....but that makes me leary of the Great White Sharks. Sand is beautiful. Not for the disabled.

Spending time at the Cape Cod National Seashore can provide a broad variety of experiences. There are many places that are busy and even crowded. There are many more quiet, secluded spots. Enjoy them all. The scenery, the beaches, the lighthouses, they're all here

Nauset Lighthouse is accessible (outside), with benches to sit on, which I used to do a small sketch as a memento. The beach was a bit of a climb down but large and not very busy (Labor Day weekend). We strolled down it to see a group of sea lions in the water, amazing. If you have any of the... More
