Enjoy the pristine landscape and tranquil beaches of Cape Cod National Seashore, where you can observe the ocean from the lighthouse or the sandy dunes. Many visitors to the area come for the chance to see whales in their natural habitat, while groups of seals frolick just off shore most of the time. Ride along the well-kept bike paths, take a walk on many hiking trails along the seashore, or swim in the clear, calm water. The park complex contains an info booth with knowledgeable and friendly staff, a gift store, and an observation deck overlooking the sea. You can also pop into the old harbor museum for information on local history. Make Cape Cod National Seashore part of your personalized Wellfleet itinerary using our Wellfleet trip itinerary site.
