Cape Cod National Seashore comprises more than 44,000 acres on Cape Cod. The protected seashore includes ponds, woodlands, and nearly 40 miles of beaches and shoreline on the eastern shores of Cape Cod. There are two visitor centers, namely Salt Pond, which is open all year round, and Province Lands, which is seasonal.
Both centers include a book and gift store as well as exhibits and films about the park. The Cape Cod National Seashore features a wide range of recreational activities, including swimming, hiking, surfing, biking, and more. Visitors can also participate in ranger-guided canoe trips around the area. There are several historical buildings that can be toured, including a whaling captain’s house and several lighthouses.
