Provincetown is at the outermost tip of the Cape. This fun loving town is an eclectic mix of people, sights and experiences. A quaint fishing village with a bustling harbor, Provincetown is known for being gay-friendly as well as a mecca for writers, poets and artists.
During the day, stroll through the shops and galleries, bike or walk the trails of the Cape Cod National Seashore, soak up sun at the beach, or head out on a whale watch. At night, dine at some of the Cape's best restaurants or take in a show at one of the town's many cabarets, clubs or theaters.
Provincetown is a fun town where you can let your hair down and have a good time. Known for its many theme weeks and weekends, the town hosts a delightful parade and fireworks on Independence Day and a not-to-be-missed parade during Carnival Week in August. Film buffs will love the annual Provincetown Film Festival in June where you might see stars on and off the silver screen.
Featured attractions include the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, MacMillan Wharf, Race Point Lighthouse and the Province Lands Visitor Center at the Cape Cod National Seashore. Local venues draw well known performers including singers, stage actors and comedians.
