Loved the opportunity to climb the monument. It is a mix of stairs and ramps but it was a great reminder to work on cardio. The view is stunning.

Yup plenty of exercise climing the ramps and stairs to the top. Many a plaques stating when each area was founded or settled. Views from the to were spectacular. Many a photo opportunities. A museum of local history to stroll through.

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!
