The whole seashore is fantastic. The Marconi site is interesting because of its particular history as an early wireless (radio) site. Some of the original facilities are still present.

Race Point beaches had dozens of endangered North Atlantic Right Whales surface feeding parallel with the shore, some of them within a few hundred feet of shore, closer than any boats are allowed to travel. Folks on beach blankets and folding chairs got an amazing show this afternoon!

We were somewhat short of time, so just visited the Eastham visitor's center. It was exceptional - very informative and great for all ages. Very interesting exhibits, great views and a nice gift shop. Highly recommend stopping here before visiting other places in the National Seashore

Unbelievable beauty over such a long uninterrupted coastline - magnificent dunes and sand for miles and miles. We brought our chairs down to the beach and picnicked...then walked a bit, just taking in the sheer magnificence of it all. Wild seas...but such a peaceful spot...can't wait to return.

We walked Coast Guard Beach , able to park in upper parking lot early in the morning. Lots of seals if you walk approximately half a mile down to the right

I grew up on the West Coast and now live in the Southwest so oceans don't generally impress me that much. However, this is a very special place. I've never quite experienced the drama and effect of land meeting sea and sea meeting sky as I saw in my one day on our National Seashore. The day started sunny but... More

Beach closed due to erosion but views are pretty. Marconi site worth the trip. Don't miss the cedar swamp with great boardwalks. Not pet friendly though.

When I think about the Cape Cod National Seashore I can't help remember that when JFK established it when I was a kid I didn't appreciate the significance. Well, I am a life long Cape Codder, I have live in around and within the National Seashore throughout my life. I am so proud of our Cape Cod National Seashore. What... More

As a Nor'easter is forming down the Coast, my spirits rise. No place on Mother Earth can equal the experience afforded in experiencing a Cape Cod in a storm. It is tempting to return during the storm. Henry Beston wrote the book "The Outermost House' in 1928.. living in solitude in the sands of time. Cape Cod in the wintertime... More
