See Cape Cod’s prettiest lighthouses, and hear about the importance of these buildings. The route has plenty of optional detours where you can make stops, like at the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary.

Excelente guía sin conductor, la aplicación se activa sin mayor problema y da información interesante de cada punto, solo a considerar en esta guía es que la visita al monumento tiene un horario estricto que no es mencionado y es de los últimos puntos de interés. Vale la pena escuchar el recorrido previo a la visita para sacarle mayor provecho, también hay varios faros cerrados por reparaciones ojala pudiera tener actualizaciones en tiempo real para saber si es posible o no visitar algunos puntos, 100% recomendable y a un excelente precio.

Didn’t know at first that the red lines are detours and blue lines are the tour on the GPS map. Otherwise, a good and informative tour!
