Stopped in here on the way to the beach and it was worth it. Really good information on the Cape inside and great views from the platform at the top of the building. Worth a visit.

The Province Lands Visitor Center is the furthermost of the Cape Cod Nation Seashore's facilities, at the place where the ocean ends and the bay begins at the very tip of the Cape. You get a breathtaking view of the sweep of the big dunes...More

Although the visitor center itself is great (exhibits, rangers, gift shop) and well worth your time (if only to use the rest room or ask directions to the nearest beach), for me the views were the biggest takeaway. There are two viewing levels attached to...More

You can view exhibits about the history and flora and fauna of the cape inside, and view the surroundings (using pedestal binoculars) outside. Worth a stop.

this was a nice, clean visitor center, at the top of the beach. There are bathrooms and drinking fountains.

Great visitor center with a number of films on the past and present of Provincelands. The observation deck affords a great 360 degree view and the rangers are most informative.

Great place to relax, find a restroom, walk on the piers. Parking is available. Assume it fills up quickly on weekends during 'the season". Don't try to drive down Commercial Street, too narrow, too many people. Parking in the area may be expensive, but then...More

Although pretty far from the beach, there is a nice observation deck where you can see whales, the binoculars that are there are cool to use.
