nothing exciting here, but can see into the bay and all around this area on a clear day. if you are driving around it is worth the quick stop, only 38 steps to the top. Would recommend Scargo beach.

We wanted to take a quick break from the typical beach trip agenda and this worked out great. It wasn't crowded, its not so tall that my seven year old couldn't run up and down the stairs twice, and the view is gorgeous. We spent about twenty minutes there just having fun and taking pictures.

This is a quick stop for a surprisingly beautiful view. I wouldn't say it is the best view on the cape, but you will be surprised by how easy it is to climb. We took our 2 year old grand daughter and she loved it.

Scargo Hill Tower is a fun place to visit for couples and/or families. I would probably not go too much out of your way to visit (for example drive from 1/2 an hour away) but if you are staying locally it is worth a visit. You climb a small stone tower and the views of the lake and ocean are very nice.

A traditional spot to take the kids for a nice view. Try it at sunset. Don't too far out of your way, it s a 20 minute event.
