If you ask ten people to share their favorite thing to do at Cape Cod National Seashore, you might hear ten different activities–swimming, hiking a trail, taking sunset pictures, surfing, observing wildlife, riding a bike, joining a ranger-guided canoe trip, exploring a whaling captain’s house, eating a wild cranberry, climbing a lighthouse. All of these opportunities (and more!) await you!

The Cape Cod National Seashore, created on August 7, 1961 by President John F. Kennedy, encompasses 43,607 acres on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. It includes ponds, woods and beachfront of the Atlantic coastal pine barrens ecoregion.
