Walked the beach and saw so many adorable seals that were super close to shore. I've done the bike path here as well and it was very fun and a good workout.

The beach, dunes, OFF ROAD, and lighthouses will wow. Fall visit quiet very empty. Pack a lunch or snack and go for a really long walk, watch the tides, and wind direction. No high rises, empty beaches, and the quiet we all long for in...More

I think it is a bit early for the blue mat. It would probably be better to wait until May 15 or so. There are two places I think the mat may be placed, one is behind the toilets and changing building where there is a... More

You do need a saltwater license. Rangers are not always helpful, especially the seasonal ones. You will pass Blackbeard's Bait and Tackle in Eastham on your way to PTown. Stop in and ask Paul what they 're catching and what... More
