Cape Cod

Wellfleet, Massachusetts

Cape Cod National Seashore - http://www.nps.gov/caco

Writing about Cape Cod in the 1800s, Henry David Thoreau said, "A man may stand there and put all America behind him." Thoreau walked the length of the great Outer Beach. Modern visitors can trace Thoreau's route along 40 miles of pristine, sandy beach protected within Cape Cod National Seashore. The national seashore comprises 43,608 acres of shoreline; salt marshes; clear, deep, freshwater kettle ponds; uplands; as well as a great diversity of species supported by these habitats. Lighthouses, a life-saving station, dune shacks, Moderne and Cape Cod-style houses, cultural landscapes, and wild cranberry bogs provide a glimpse into Cape Codís past and continuing life ways. The Seashore offers six swimming beaches, eleven self-guiding nature trails, and a variety of picnic areas and scenic overlooks.
