Cape Cod National Seashore
As described by Henry David Thoreau, "A man may stand there and put all America behind him."
Designated the most beautiful location in Massachusetts by Travel and Leisure Magazine, the Cape Cod National Seashore is a local treasure. Established in 1961 by John F. Kennedy, it is said to be the "finest victory ever recorded for the cause of conservation in New England." Forty miles of pristine sandy beach, marshes, ponds, and uplands support diverse species. Lighthouses, cultural landscapes, and wild cranberry bogs offer a glimpse of Cape Cod's past and continuing ways of life. Visit to enjoy sunbathing and swimming at magnificent beaches, hiking along lush paths, biking the scenic trails, and so much more.
