Plan Your Visit

If you ask ten people to share their favorite thing to do at Cape Cod National Seashore, you might hear ten different activities--swimming, hiking a trail, taking sunset pictures, surfing, observing wildlife, riding a bike, joining a ranger-guided canoe trip, exploring a whaling captain's house, eating a wild cranberry, climbing a lighthouse. All of these opportunities (and more!) await you!
