#1 of 15 in Things to do in Wellfleet
Enjoy a sweeping view of the Cape Cod Bay at Marconi Beach, gently sloping into the Atlantic Ocean. This is a popular spot for surfing, boogie boarding, and skimboarding. Animal lovers should keep their eyes peeled for seals, often spotted just off shore. Near the beach is the area's top attraction--Marconi Station, from which Italian inventor Marconi made the first successful transatlantic wireless communication from the United States.
