Our family spent one day exploring the national seashore. What a beautiful place! Lots of pretty overlooks and historical sites. Gorgeous place!

I am dumbfounded every time I go here and see people swimming around in the water with their children when it is known that there are great white sharks in close proximity at any given moment. Am I missing something?

When visiting Cape Cod and interested in a great beach, our favorite is the beach at Cape Cod National Seashore; very clean, uncrowded, plenty of parking and we enjoyed watching seals playing in the waves just off shore.

It's a favorite on Cape Cod for good reason - the cliff-like dunes behind the beach provide a unique backdrop and counterpoint to the ocean. It's amazingly beautiful. The walk down to the beach is down a long a pretty neat staircase, so definitely not...More

There are two visitor centers: one just past Easton, the other near Provincetown. Eastham was the more informative and the rangers were incredibly helpful. There are a variety of walks, of various lengths, and skill levels; and the video, at the Eastham location, gave us...More
