Close to downtown but feels apart. Often can see the Osprey if they are out hunting or spot a Great blue heron. Wonderful fidler crab holes. It is a great place to walk.

Much sturdier than I remember it as a kid. Uncle Tim's has become something of a destination. Wonderful bog views at differing tides. Fun to walk across and explore the other side.

Fun place to discover, Must See when you are in Wellfleet! Being there puts you in touch with Cape Cod nature wonders.

This land was given to the town by a local family. There is a boardwalk across Duck Creek, out to an island where there are trails and breathtaking views. Well worth the stop as you explore Wellfleet.

Unique and great for pictures and horseshoe crab sightings :). Artists on the bridge and families strolling around, but still doesn't feel touristy.
