We enjoyed the peace and beauty of the beaches and dunes along here, versus the hectic tourist feel of Provincetown. While visiting the Province Lands Visitor Center we were also treated to a pod of whales we could watch from the observation deck!

12 months of the year it's great to visit the Cape Cod National Seashore. Especially in the off season when the parking lots are empty (and free), a long walk alongside the ocean and the dunes just frees your mind from every day cares.
