Walk along the pristine sandy beaches and feel the cool ocean breeze at Cape Cod.
The Cape Cod National Seashore is a wonderful sightseeing destination. Visitors can book a whale-watching tour to catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures. If you are prone to seasickness, explore the land by hiking on one of their many trails. Great Island Trail near Griffin Island has two loop trails that are perfect for avid hikers. Doane Trail is ADA accessible and located just east of the Salt Pond Visitor Center and features a paved, shaded path, plus a picnic area nearby.
If you want to catch some fish, a permit is required for visitors ages 16 and over. Recreational vehicles with permits are allowed to drive on certain beaches. Fishing and ORV permits can be obtained either in person or online in advance. With miles of beachfront, Cape Cod is an ideal place to watch the sunset and watch the waves. Summers are often busy, so arrive at the beach early to get a good parking spot. A trip to Cape Cod is incomplete without visiting this national seashore.
