Provincetown

Provincetown is an enchanting village at the tip of Cape Cod that is like no other place in North America. Quaint, narrow streets and long wharfs remind visitors of the town's origins as a fishing and whaling village whose fishing fleet still brings in its catch. Only three miles wide at its center, much of Provincetown is National Seashore with beautiful beaches and magnificent sand dunes. The Pilgrim Monument, in the center of town, commemorating the First Landing, is the tallest all-granite structure in the United States and offers fantastic views of the town, Cape Cod and Boston.

A long-standing vacation spot for gay travelers, Provincetown hosts many annual events that draw visitors from all across the world. There are parties, sporting events, leather events, Bear Week, Women's Week and many other fun happenings to experience. It almost seems like the summer goes by too fast here. Fortunately the warm weather often lingers, and with the crowds gone, the fall is sometimes the best time to visit.
