Wellfeet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary; www.massaudubon.org, 291 State Hwy. 6, Wellfleet, MA – to get a complete overview of Cape Cod and its varied habitats, this former bird-banding station is key. On 1,100 acres, you can easily spend the good part of a day hiking along five miles of trails through a variety of habitats – woodlands, tidal marsh, beach, coastal sandplain, fresh water ponds. You’ll see ospreys and otters, kingfishers and muskrats, crabs and hundreds of other miracles of nature. Walk into the LEED Certified (read: Eco-Friendly) Nature Center and sit in a sling-back chair for a bit while gazing at bird feeding stations through a wall of glass. Just outside the front door, there’s a hummingbird/butterfly garden.

Driving along, I passed a slew of lobster shanties, motor lodges, motels, strip shopping centers and ticky-tackey shops. As I wrote before, this is not an exhaustive guide of every establishment on US Route 6. But if you do want something more in-depth or to explore more of Cape Cod, I'll refer you to the ULTIMATE source, Kim Grant. She knows the inns and outs of this 60 mile long island like no other.
