This center is interesting, beautiful and the rangers are very friendly and helpful. They have tours and workshops and I recommend going in for a visit even if it just for information.

Nice gift shop, great little exhibits to look at, and nice little rainy day programs to explore. The view of the pond is gorgeous. You can buy beach passes here, too.

The rangers in particular are great and super helpful and you will not feel rushed at all. For those of you like my over 62, a must purchase is the Senior Pass for $10, its a... More

We stopped before exploring the National Seashore, very nice museum and gift shop. Staff available to help and answer questions. Views from windows were excellent for viewing Salt Pond. We saw a group of kyackers start out on a trip. Very nice area.
