If you are walking up the hill to the monument the climb is steeper than the climb up inside the tower. We visited on an extremely windy day so lots of buffeting at the top. Great views. Excellent local history museum before the tower. Very...More

You can't miss the tower as it is a large structure that you can see for miles but once on land you must not fail to visit. If you are reasonably fit and healthy, climbing to the top is achievable in 15 minutes and brings...More

The 360 deg view of the Cape is spectacular. You also learn a lot about the settlement of the area by The Mayflower pilgrims.

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
