Went on an uncrowned morning not quite in season. I imagine much more claustrophobic and loud when there’s a ton of people in that tiny space. Love the Adirondack chairs on the lawn!

Good views from the monument, you can see much of the Cape, and even the Massachusetts mainland on a clear day.

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.
