Cape Cod National Seashore
The protected Cape Cod National Seashore stretches 40 miles, from Chatham all the way north to Provincetown. It was set aside in 1961 by John F. Kennedy. Top strands include North Beach (on a sandbar in Chatham and reachable only by boat) and Provincetown’s Race Point (where you can sometimes see whales offshore). Also within the park, in East Orleans, Nauset Beach is beloved for Liam’s seafood shack.
