If you are driving along 6A and are near Dennis, take a detour to the Scargo Tower for a few minutes. It doesn't cost anything, and it's a lovely view!

It's a small stone tower worth a visit if you are in Dennis but not worth a special trip. Good views from the top but not spectacular.

We drove up to the tower and climbed the steps to the top! Not too much for us..even in our 70's! When we looked out, we could see Provincetown as it juts out! The tower is old. It dates back to 1929.

Her rack of lamb was done to perfection and my friends steak was also beyond perfect. We had the famous dessert Custard that was featured in Bon Appetit and were not disappointed. We should have gotten three... More

You can see the view from up on the hill where you can park right next to the tower. Or you can climb the small tower and have a better view of the harbor. Big attraction for kids.

I found Scargo Tower on the internet while searching things to do in Cape Cod and since my husband is a fan of stone objects, decided to jaunt to the Tower. It stands alone in a parking area on a slight hill in Dennis, Ma. We climbed the winding staircase to glance at a wonderful view. Just spent about half... More

Small rock tower to climb, kids love it and it's easy for everyone with a beautiful view of Cape Cod Bay as a reward. Be sure to bring the camera...

One of the highest points on Cape Cod. Great views from the Canal to Ptown. Just drive up drive way and climb about 40 stairs. Try to see the view at sunset/
