Science Museum

Natural Feature
“The amazing landscape includes marshlands and stunning dunes. Large waves at the Coast Guard beach creates great opportunities for boogie-boarding and surfing. The parking at the beach is not very large and is for residents only, however, non-residents can park at the nearby Little Creek parking lot and hop on the shuttle that runs every few minutes. A boardwalk runs right to the beach making it accessible for the disabled. There are lifeguards, showers, restrooms, and even handicap chairs available at the beach.”

Lighthouse
“Tours are available in the evenings. Beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean! ”

Beach
“Popular Skaket Beach is a great bayside alternative to Nauset Beach. The calm, warm waters are great for swimming at high tide. At low tide beachcombers can walk along tidal flats that stretch for miles. Children love exploring the small pools of water left at low tide, often finding small crabs and minnows trapped in them. Skaket Beach faces directly west across the bay, making it one of the best places to catch a stunning sunset on the Cape. Parking is limited and fills up fast, so get there early. 9.2 miles away Lifeguard Restroom Snack Bar Parking”
