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

Cape Cod National Seashore is a true treasure. We visited in the offseason, so no swimming or time in the water, but we did enjoy walking the shoreline, admiring the views, and seeing a whale. The visitors center provided interesting history of the park, and we stopped at a few of the beach points throughout the park. It's free and... More

I love going to Coastlines, but I never knew this was here until my friend took me. We had a wonderful weekend in Cape Cop, and although it was during the winter time it was still awesome to see. Nice, quite and just the sound of the waves, we did see what seemed to be seal so that was pretty... More

Spent a week on Cape Cod with friends who rented a house and extended their hospitality to us. The beach and shire amazing! Spent a day in p-town where the street performers were fantastic and included an opera singer, Ms. Smith who "played" guitar and tried to hide her skills and a duet who sang an awesome version of Hallelujah....

Beaches are just gorgeous and the views are stunning. Seals and whales can be seen from the shore. Water is beautiful and clear. Fun time exploring the shore for shells.

We stopped at the Salt Pond visitor center first and took a short loop walk around the marsh, which had fantastic views and made for some terrific photos of the golden fall grasses against the deep blue water and sky. I'd actually suggest walking out to the far point overlooking the water and then backtracking the way you came since... More

The drive along the coast is very nice. Lots of good places to pull off and see lighthouses and seals!

We started our day at Nauset. Beautiful shoreline. We saw the seals playing in the water. No shark sightings. We continued up the shoreline and hiked many of the trails. The trails were all well groomed, the terrain was beautiful and changed throughout our 10 miles of hiking. We will definitely come back to ride bike on the trail. All... More
