Although I have seen many beautiful beaches over the years, the Cape Cod National Seashore ranks among the finest - and is, in my mind, one of the most natural and unspoiled. There are few shoreline houses or structures, and nature, not man, is what...More

We spent a good portion of our day at the Nauset Light Beach (and visited the lighthouse as well). We walked quite a ways down the beach and just enjoyed the power of the ocean. There were some seals swimming not too far off shore....More

Heaven on earth it's beautiful. You can walk for miles. Bike paths everywhere. Teaming with water creatures. But beware of undertow. The temp of water of 65 degrees.

My husband and I watched every film, mostly about 12 minutes long each, and then walked over to the other side of the building to visit the museum. The films were great, especially the one on whaling. Having said that, however, my favorite part was...More

Miles of quiet beach for walking and exploring. Never before have we seen seals frolicking like this and I grew up in NH. Such spectacular scenery.

An entrance fee to what? A beach? Most beaches stop charging after Labor Day, especially if it is a state beach.
