Here to prove we are right, we’re showing you the traveller’s review:
“Beautiful vacation spot. Great for spending time with the family on the beach, kayaking on the lakes, or exploring the different communities. Lots of history to learn about, and plenty of local historical sights. I would definitely recommend going to Cape Cod for a vacation.”
“One of the most beautiful places on this continent. My family went surfing and had a blast. Wetsuits are recommended for early in summer. Incredible facilities including lifeguards, showers, parking, and a new boardwalk/staircase. Just download the Shark Alert app provided by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and keep your eyes peeled for large dark shapes in the water!”
Never miss the chance to get in here!
Rent a bike and ride miles and miles of paved trails that traverse the seashore!
The Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, Massachusetts, was built between 1907 and 1910, to commemorate the first landfall of the Pilgrims in 1620, and the signing of the Mayflower Compact in Provincetown Harbor.
Honoring the Mayflower Pilgrims, this 252-ft. granite monument offers dramatic city & harbor views.
“View from the top is worth the climb up. Great way to get your steps in for the day but it is a trek up if you aren’t used to it. The stairway has landings so you can take a breather and let people pass if needed. Interesting things on the wall to read as you climb. Gift store and exhibit on the ground floor and nice grounds around it.”
“If you love climbing stairs forever and becoming acrophobic, you will love it here. View from the top is remarkable. Gives you a really good sense of how small cape cod really is, just a little spit sticking out into the ocean. Don’t get tickets unless prepared to climb stairs for ten minutes.”
“You can’t miss the giant granite monument that towers over Provincetown, MA. So why not climb it?!?! The impressiveness of the tower is a 5, and the price is a 3… so I’m giving this 4 stars. While the museum has some highlights, such as the narwal tusk, whale jawbone and some cool taxidermy, $12/adult is a bit much for what it is. But it’s worth it to climb the tower…”
Have a Terrific experience. With the staffs was helpful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable, you surely never miss the chance of getting in here for a vacation!
It is a large sandy beach known for strong currents with a working lighthouse & seal population. Really an amazing place to visit!
We’ll let reviews give justice to why we include this place as the best place to visit!
“Echoing everyone else, this is a beautiful beach. Too cold for swimming when I attended and very dangerous currents. Swimming areas are buoyed off and don’t go out very far. Parking at the lot is limited to 30 minutes. There is a parking lot on Maine Street with a shuttle to alleviate parking (though that lot shares with village shopping and is easily crowded).”
“Breathtaking view from the overlook. Popular for sunbathing, long beach walks, and being seen. Water has dangerous currents and is shark infested in season. Shore patrol on constant duty. Limited street parking and long hike to beach. Popular with seasonal residents staying within walking distance.”
“One of the best beaches on the Cape. Clean and always nice to walk along. The breeze is always blowing and the area is very open. The parking is a little tight on popular days.”
The Marconi Wireless Station Site in South Wellfleet, Massachusetts is the site of the first transatlantic wireless communication between the United States and Europe, on January 18, 1903.
This place is truly a breath-taking concept in 1903!
“Excellent view. Historic plaques. Nearby trail that exposes some of the National Seashore’s woodland beauty. Free parking. Clean bathrooms. No beach access.”
“It’s a shame there isn’t more there to mark such an amazing technological feat. As the plaque says, wireless communication was a concept saved for science fiction at the time of his invention. Again, there isn’t too much to mark the achievement but it’s free and a beautiful place to contemplate such an amazing achievement in technology. If you’re interested in history (or just on a really tight budget) it’s worth stopping in. There are some nice looking trails to check out in the area, but bad weather prevented us from exploring them.”
