Visit Nauset Light, Eastham
Before this lighthouse was moved from Chatham, three towers, the Three Sisters, served the area. They are on display a hundred yards from the present light. Follow Rt 6 to Eastham. Take Nauset Rd, next to the Salt Pond Visitor Center, then Ocean View Dr. to Nauset Light Beach.


Highland Light & Historical Museum
In 1797 George Washington ordered the construction of the Cape's first lighthouse to warn sailors of the area known as the "Graveyard of Ships." The current beacon, with over 620,000 candlepower, is the most powerful light in New England; ships from 30 miles away can identify this landmark. In July 1996, the lighthouse, then only 100'away from an ever-eroding cliff, was moved west 450-feet to its current location. Take Route 6 to Truro. Follow signs to Highland Light off Highland Rd.

View a variety of displays about the town's history, housed in the old Highland House, once a fashionable summer hotel. 508-487-3397


Race Point, Provincetown
For centuries before our canal was built, this 40' beacon (1816) helped guide ships around the tricky shoals. From Herring Cove Beach, the light is about a mile hike north across the sands.


Wood End Light & Long Point Light, Provincetown
Wood End light, built in 1872, is an exact replica of Long Point Light, erected in 1822. You can see the latter from MacMillan Wharf and the former at the end of Commercial St. Wood End is about a half mile walk across the breakwater. Long Point Light is an hour's trek beyond.
