We stayed right down the road at the Kingfisher Lodge. What an awesome view of the Cape Cod Bay and Scargo Lake. Friendly locals explained the rich history of the area. Slow the pace and enjoy the scenery. Its a panoramic view from the top.

It's not very big but loads of fun. If you are in Dennis, you'd be insane not to swing by this free attraction.

This is a neat stone tower you can walk up and get some great pictures of the harbor and on a clear day, see Provincetown. It doesn't take long and is a nice stop on the way to the beach.
