Usually climbing towers involves lots of steps - this one was a good mix of steps and slopes which made it easy and before we knew it we were at the top. The views are spectacular, spent ages just watching the world go by. The...More

We so enjoyed the walk to the top. It is up 95% ramps so not as tough as climbing stairs all the way up. Better suited for a nicer weather day as there are open windows. Fantastic views of the area.

We walked to the top of this impressive monument honoring where the Pilgrims landed. Great view over Provincetown. Plan to spend over an hour meandering through an extensive museum. We enjoyed every minute there!

Steady climb to the top. Worth every breath. When you get up to the top and see the magnificent view of Cape Cod Bay and the sand dunes. Will definitely recommend to anyone who visits here.

No place to check in a backpack but as it's a reasonably gentle grade with plenty of waiting places as you go it, provided its not too big it should be no problem.

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