Spent a day in p-town where the street performers were fantastic and included an opera singer, Ms. Smith who "played" guitar and tried to hide her skills and a duet who sang an awesome version of Hallelujah....

Beaches are just gorgeous and the views are stunning. Seals and whales can be seen from the shore. Water is beautiful and clear. Fun time exploring the shore for shells.

We stopped at the Salt Pond visitor center first and took a short loop walk around the marsh, which had fantastic views and made for some terrific photos of the golden fall grasses against the deep blue water and sky. I'd actually suggest walking out to the far point overlooking the water and then backtracking the way you came since... More

We started our day at Nauset. Beautiful shoreline. We saw the seals playing in the water. No shark sightings. We continued up the shoreline and hiked many of the trails. The trails were all well groomed, the terrain was beautiful and changed throughout our 10 miles of hiking. We will definitely come back to ride bike on the trail. All... More

The shoreline is beautiful, we saw the Nauset Lighthouse which is cool, gorgeous coast. We took the "Gray Lady"ferry and had a wonderful time around the island.

This is almost the opposite of the Pacific coast with its mountains and vegetation. A visit to this area offers some real insight into what the early settlers must have experienced when they arrived on this continent and established themselves in their new homes. It isn't especially scenic but is certainly thought provoking.

It was late in the day when we arrived at the areaof the Nauset lighthouse. The light itaelf is very cool. The shoreline is beautiful. We had the chance opportunity to see whales, "blows", tails, and backs which even at a distance wasa very cool. We also saw a seal swimming parallel to the shore. It was a reminder to... More

Gorgeous coast line on Cape Cod. We were there on a day you could go up in the Nauset Lighthouse. Carl was in the top of the lighthouse and was very informative.
