The Cape Cod National Seashore is beautiful and In May, not too busy at all. We had varied weather from windy to calm. The beaches are soft and clean, some have more shells and interesting beachcombing.

The whole seashore is fantastic. The Marconi site is interesting because of its particular history as an early wireless (radio) site. Some of the original facilities are still present.

We are going to visit in mid-October and got an off-road permit. I have a back problem and can't hike far but I am also a photographer. Can you advise a) scenic areas to visit for photographic opportunities where I won't have to go far or can off-road to and b) where we should off-road without risk of getting stuck? Thanks!
