Cape Cod National Seashore

Henry David Thoreau knew Cape Cod well, once writing that "A man may stand there and put all America behind him." Today, part of the Cape has been designated Cape Cod National Seashore. Appropriately enough, the legislation to create this remarkable site was signed into law by President John F. Kennedy, who also knew and loved the area. As with many National Park websites, this one includes sections on History & Culture, Photos & Multimedia, and For Teachers. The History & Culture area includes information on the wonderful residency programs for artists, and information on the archaeology of outer Cape Cod. Further along, visitors shouldn't miss the Photos & Multimedia area, which includes several photo galleries and welcomes from the Coast Guard Beach in Eastham and Nauset Beach in Orleans. Finally, the For Teachers area includes lesson plans and information about overnight educational group opportunities.
