Fort Hill Scavenger Hunt by GPS and CompassAdd to My Luxx Living
The Cape Cod National Seashore begins for most of us at Fort Hill, where you can overlook Nauset Marsh toward the Atlantic and to your left view the iconic Coast Guard Station that towers over Coast Guard Beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of ocean and sand in the United States.
The U.S Park Service, which manages the National Seashore, has created a fun way to enjoy Fort Hill using GPS technology.

This is a great family advanture relying on GPS and compass information for a scavenger hunt. It should take about two hours, so bring water and snacks for the kids.
Fort Hill not only is outrageously beautiful, but it also is designated as the Nauset Archeological District National History Landmark and Fort Hill Rural History District.
Additionallly, it contains a house listed on the Naitonal Register of Historic Places.
Why should you care about Fort Hill? What makes it special enough that the National Park Service decided to include it within the protected boundaries of the National Seashore? This is your job to find out.
