No one in my group fell and died. Instead we saw lovely views of the ocean and the Cape. Overall, a success.

We walked all the way up to the top of the tower, and were treated to gorgeous views of the harbor. The museum is lovely and informative. Cute gift shop with very reasonable prices. Helpful staff!

Walk the Jetty! It's a great experience to walk across and visit the light house on the other side. Wear sunscreen and pack some light bites -- you are going to want to stay on that side a lot longer than you think.

The museum was very educational. I didn't know about the Portuguese immigrants who had a great influence on the town. Also, climbing the monument to the top was hard work but worth the effort to climb up all the way. The view from the top...More

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!
