    What a magnificent gem! Beautiful views, historical landmarks, hiking, bicycling, lighthouses and beaches. Everything is free with a National Park Pass. Most things are free without a Park Pass. There are two visitor centers with museums and gift stores and free moves. There are Ranger Programs for adults and children. Unfortunately one must navigate the traffic to get there.

    A must stop if you are coming to Cape Code. Each beach has its own Beaty this one takes your experience next level up. Aside of a beach we saw many different birds, in a near distance fishing ships with birds trailing them.
    Rest you have to experience for yourself. Embrace the moment and don’t forget to breath…

    It was very interesting to see all about JFK. Not a real history person but this place I did learn al lot about him. A must see thing to do if ever in Cape Cod.

    I love to walk up and down this street. It's fun to people watch. There are numerous restaurants and places to get drinks. There are coffee and ice cream places and plenty of shopping. The street runs along the water for beautiful views

    Whether you’re walking, jogging, biking or (in my case) gliding on a Segway equipped with a seat (so my MS-weary legs don’t have to bear weight), this trail is the best. There are other trails with better views, but if you start from Underpass Rd. it runs totally level and mostly in shade for a couple of miles in each direction. On a beautiful, cool and low-humidity day, it makes for an exhilarating time outdoors.

    I was nervous about this trip because my husband is handicapped. The crew were amazing! And they are so incredibly organized, from lining the cars into numbered lanes for boarding, to making sure we were parked near the elevator for my husband to have easy access. It was a very pleasant trip and the offloading was just as easy and organized as the boarding. Hope to take them to Nantucket next year.

    Clean water and sand with a lovely lighthouse. This beach is truly delightful and simply not to be missed when in Chatham.

    Beautiful nude beach in Provincetown. Walk 20 minutes to the left of the beach entrance at the parking lot. You can’t miss it. You will see some scattered nudes, couples, etc. after the “no dogs allowed” sign but the actual place to be is another 10 minute walk from there Mostly gay men but an over all mixed crowd enjoying no tan lines. Enjoy both the bay side in the ocean side. You won’t regret the walk.

    Disappointing that many places were closed, either for the season, or due to it being Monday. I would never go here in the summer; I think I would hate the amount of people, so not sure what the sweet spot is when places are open, but you're not stuck in a mass of humanity. We did find a couple of cool places, but again, SO many were closed...

    This is right on Veterans Beach surrounded by flowers and a beautiful fountain. The Korean war memorial is adjacent to this and the beach is right there along side the HYC.

    We went looking for the Kennedy Hyannisport compound. Never did find it. Went to the JFK museum. CLOSED on a tourist Sunday. I had first drunk Cape Cod beer (Beach Blonde Ale) near Provincetown. I liked it so much that I bought a case to bring home to Ohio. Then I drank some Cape Cod Red in Hyannis and decided it was time to visit the brewery which was nearby.

    A brewery tour was - of course - not avaiable but had a good time regardless. They had music and a food truck run by a Food Channel guy of some renown called The Phantom Gourmet. We tried a six-beer tasting and I decided I still liked the Blonde and the Red the best. The wheat beer came in third.

    Nice place to visit, kick back, try some beers, have something to eat and listen to the music. The gals were very friendly and the atmosphere was totally casual.

    This is actually an eclectic collection of a car museum, a museum on the modern history of Cape Cod, a carousel, a windmill and a Wampanoag summer house tied together with beautiful gardens of flowers, including a labyrinth and a maze. The flowers were gorgeous. The hydrangeas were in full bloom and there were special tours of them. We loved the car museum too – an impressive collection with very good plaques explaining the significance of each car. Since we’re members of the National Carousel Association, our first priority was to ride the carousel. The workers there were very friendly, helpful and took good care of all the riders. It’s a beautiful 1908 Charles Looff carousel, definitely a national treasure. We could see that it’s well cared for and that a few horses at a time are being refurbished in the off season. It would have been nice to see more of the animals presently in storage, but we really enjoyed the 3 that were displayed to one side.

    This is a great vista to see Provincetown. It is also a great place to park to explore downtown for free. Just note there is a hill to climb up and down.

    Monomoy is lovely and unspoiled but erosion and changes make it harder to enjoy. Paths down from the visitors parking are all closed and the whole forest on the edge of the site is cut down. The bathrooms with running water are gone and pit toilets are for use. To access, walk out of entry road and turn left into private neighborhood with assurance right of way will be granted. Walk to house #231 and marked dirt path down hill will take you to beach and water. The large blue 231 is gone and the number is on opposite side of mail box in crayon. As always, careful of vast amounts of poison ivy and ticks in all grass.
