This National Seashore visitors center is located in a beautiful spot on the tip of the Cape. There is a viewing platform on the roof with great views of the ocean and headlands.

I stopped at the visitors center for the sole purpose of seeing Race Point beach from that vantage point. It did not disappoint. The double deck provided amazing views of the vegetation, sea grass, sand, dunes, and water. The walk to the water is beautiful.

There are a couple of National Seashore centers out on the Cape with a gift shop, observation deck, movie theatre, etc. This one has a great view of the sea at the tip of the Cape.

The top deck has a good view of the ocean. There are free high-powered binoculars available. The rangers downstairs have all the answers to your questions. No eats here.
