We absolutely loved our visit to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Went with two boys age 5 & 7. Water too cold to get in but enjoyed sightseeing (dunes, Lighthouses) and walking along the beaches and throwing stranded fish back into the surf. Would definitely...More

We enjoyed the peace and beauty of the beaches and dunes along here, versus the hectic tourist feel of Provincetown. While visiting the Province Lands Visitor Center we were also treated to a pod of whales we could watch from the observation deck!

We visited the light houses and enjoyed the views. The visitor center had a lot of educational opportunities and a great gift shop inside. It also had a museum.

12 months of the year it's great to visit the Cape Cod National Seashore. Especially in the off season when the parking lots are empty (and free), a long walk alongside the ocean and the dunes just frees your mind from every day cares.

The National Seashore in the "off" season in my opinion is the best time to go! It's quiet and peaceful. You can enjoy the serenity of the beaches with few or no people on them. A lot of places do close down in the "off... More
