What a view. You can see so much of the end of the cape.
Climbing the 252 foot monument is a definite leg burner but you will forget all that when you get to the top and take in 360 degree views. If you want to save 30 feet of vertical, instead of using the downtown parking lot, come on up to the pay parking at the base of the monument. The monument sits on a hill so even the base offers some views.
