Once you’ve visited the diverse, creative and rather beautiful Provincetown, you won’t forget it in a hurry.
Provincetown is a compact coastal resort town on the Cape Cod peninsula in Massachusetts, an area known for its stunning natural beauty.
Known locally as P-town, it’s famous for its gorgeous beaches, fun-loving bohemian culture and vibrant arts scene. It’s also a popular LGBTQ+ friendly holiday destination, attracting visitors from far and wide.
There are no shortage of amusements and attractions on offer in Provincetown. You can spend a fascinating afternoon browsing charming shops or popping in and out of art galleries, or settle down for a delicious meal at one of its fantastic restaurants.
You can spend almost a whole day in the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM), which has a whopping 3,000 pieces of work on display. And if you have any time left, make sure to check out the Pilgrim Monument, which commemorates the original landing of the Mayflower in 1620 in the harbour of Provincetown.
But you might not be able to tear yourself away from the beaches, of which there are a huge 45 miles to choose from. One of the best is Race Point Beach, a haven of luxurious soft sand and a rather pretty lighthouse too.
Step outside of P-town itself and you’ll discover some spectacular scenery. If you’re a keen cyclist, the 5-mile Province Lands Bike Trail is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in nature. You can also stroll along the Beech Forest Trail, a perfect place for birdwatching. Or you can get out to sea, taking a sailing trip or whale watching excursion out to the rest of Cape Cod.
