Cape Cod National Seashore - Province Lands Visitor Center - read more 5 - 26 - 14
After seven hours in Provincetown we stopped at the Cape Cod National Seashore - Province Lands Visitor Center to get some information for future ""good weather days.""
Four handicapped accessible parking spaces in a paved lot were close to the visitor center. A moderately steep ramp led to the boardwalk entrance. A handicapped assist push button opened the double doors.
Inside we found an airy space with several exhibits that showcase the parks. The CCNS (Cape Cod National Seashore) was created in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy. It ""consists of 43,500 acres of beaches, ponds and woods. Beaches are windswept and the water is cold, but the views are spectacular."" (website)
Much information is available at the desk. Ask for a brochure describing the accessibility of each park. Some of the parks have beach wheelchairs and showers that accommodate wheelchairs.
There is a small gift area as well as some benches for resting.
On the outdoor deck, we found several benches with a beautiful view of the shore. Two stationary binoculars are there as well, with one being low enough for wheelchair viewing. What a thoughtful thing to do! If steps are not a problem for you, climb the stairs to the upper deck for the spectacular view.
Restrooms with handicapped accessible stalls are located on the outside of the building.
As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to check a venue's website, www.npca.org, when planning a visit, to ""know before you go.""
