The visitors center here is pretty small, but we really enjoyed going up to the lookout. The kids liked that the binoculars were available for free, so we could get a closer look at the large sailing vessels. There is a small gift shop and staff available to answer any questions.

This is a multi-level visitor's center and ranger station, with an educational outlook. The center itself closes at 5:00, but the outer decks and bathrooms are separate and your visit can be prolonged if you wish.

This a cool place to visit and learn about the area. There is a theater where you learn about the Ocean and its unpredictable behaviors of past. The view is lovely.

The drive there is very scenic. Once you arrive, there are a number of very interesting and informative exhibits that describe the history of Provincetown as well as its geological origins. The outside viewing deck has spectacular views of the surrounding forest, dunes and beaches.
