Where to Find Visitor Centers

Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce Welcome Center

The is the "Big Daddy" of the area's official Welcome Centers.

If you'll be anywhere near Centerville (next door to Hyannis), it's well worth stopping here to pick up a handful of tourism booklets, brochures, and pocket maps to guide you on your travels around the Cape. 


Route 6 Visitor Center

7025 Route 6
(Between Exits 6 & 7 in the eastbound rest area)
Barnstable, MA
(508) 362-9796

As you drive into the rest area, you'll spot this pretty little shingled building tucked among the trees. Go on in! The staff are super-friendly and always happy to answer your questions. 

FYI: On summer holiday weekends, you'll see progressive signs along Rt. 6 for about a half-mile before the rest area: "Ask Mom! Tell Dad! Free coffee ahead!!" 

Grab a cup of coffee to go. And be sure to buy a donut or pastry from the Scout troop or other organization that's operating the food tent that day. It's always for a great cause!

Entry to Cape Cod National Seashore's Salt Pond Visitor Center

You might think it's odd that someone who has a home on the Cape would love, love, love a Cape Cod tourist center. But I do!  

It's easy to spend an hour or more here ... watching short films in the  theater, perusing the museum, poking around in the gift shop, checking out the children's exhibits, and walking the trail around Salt Pond.

The employees at Salt Pond's information desk are incredibly helpful, too. Need help planning your explorations of the National Seashore area? They have you covered with activity suggestions, maps, and detailed directions to anywhere you'd like to go.

Although it's smaller than the information center at Salt Pond, the Provincelands facility has plenty of info for you, and some pretty cool features, too ... including an observation deck with spectacular views.

The deck is open year round. Bring your binoculars, or use the ones that are provided, to look out over the ocean. You never know what you'll see. Whales, perhaps?!
