Nice little tower for a quick visit

We popped over here as a quick visit. There is parking for five or six cars but that's fine as people don't stay long. A quick trip up the tower for a look at the nice view and... read more

We popped over here as a quick visit. There is parking for five or six cars but that's fine as people don't stay long. A quick trip up the tower for a look at the nice view and you're done. It's nice that it's here but it's annoying that people thing it's acceptable to cover the place with graffiti -... More

Is the tower the best thing you'll ever see? No. So why is it a FIVE? Because the quality of the view compared to the little amount of time you'll spend is great. You won't spend more than a half hour here, climbing the tower, looking around and coming down. The view is simply gorgeous. The tower is old and... More

Tucked away in a residential neighborhood, this free attraction provided us with some spectacular views of Cape Cod bay. You do have to climb the circular stairs but it is not that difficult to reach the top. Best to go on a clear day.

No complaints from our family when we drove here to visit this free attraction. Great views at the top of the tower, we did not go on a crowded day and no other visitors were encountered.

A great stop to break up the day! You can climb to the top and oh what a view! On a clear night you can see Provincetown. I have young children and they have been coming since they were 2...it's a proud moment at that age when you reach the top!

We almost did not find this quaint lookout tower tucked in the woods, as GPS took us down a street too soon. We went one block further and it was clearly marked with signs. A climb up a spiral staircase in the old stone tower provides a gorgeous view of the lake and ocean in the distance. We spoke to... More

Maybe one of the highest points on the Cape. On a clear day you can see in all directions. Fun for the kids to climb the tower and look our from the top.

Saw this on tripadvisor and just had to do it. It's a quick climb to the top of an old tower and you get a great view of the pond below and the ocean in front of you. The view of very tranquil and peaceful.

This was a nice little area to visit with a gorgeous view. Not really much else to do there but the view is worth the climb up the spiral staircase.

The views up here are great. Check this place if you're coming back from Mayflower or other bay area beaches on 6A. You get a great view up as far northwest as Plymouth/Duxbury, northeast Ptown and Nantucket sound to the south.
