“Great Views”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The views are amazing from the top of the tower. Very nice to go with friends of any age. There is a spiral staircase to the top about 30 feet. Not a far drive if you like photo's this is the place to take some. Loved it.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

A scary trip up a circular staircase gets you to a view of the Cape that can't be found anywhere else. Peaceful and beautiful. A hidden treasure.

We have climbed the tower since we were kids...then with kids....and now waiting to do it with grandkids? It's a fun time and kids just love towers.

“A (FREE) very simple tower with a beautiful view.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Five full stars from me, but the rest of the family thought I over-rated. From the top you can see Scargo Lake to Provincetown. It isn't too tall, but the steps inside wind up like in a lighthouse. Small toddlers or those who cannot walk unassisted may not want to make the 1 minute climb. There's only room for about 4 people at the top, so you may want to wait if someone else is up there. It only takes a few minutes to take in the view. The whole visit can be completed in 10 minutes. It helps to know the legend, too. http://www.capecodtravel.com/towns/dennis/scargoleg0199.shtml
