Provincetown has it all! Whale watching, small shops that punctuate a walking tour of the town, one of the most beautiful libraries you'll ever visit, the Provincetown Monument (there's a lot of history in this little town where the Pilgrims came after visiting Eastham first..before their eventual stop in Plymouth!), tons of wonderful art galleries, gorgeous beaches within the National Seashore, and of course Provincetown is known for it's inclusive attitude and is most welcoming to our LGBT community. Provincetown is first and foremost one of our most important fishing communities, and remains so. Don't miss taking a trip whale watching on the Dolphin Fleet.Recommended for:

The locals in this gay-friendly vacation town—with its abundance of B&Bs and salty seaside charm—impressed readers for being physically fit, and for speaking with Bahston-influenced accents. Keep pace with couply activities like pedaling the Province Lands Bicycle Trail, which has sweeping views of Cape Cod Bay. The city also landed in the top 10 for its memorable souvenirs, like a book of poetry from Provincetown Bookshop or Cabot’s Candy fudge, and No. 6 for vacation homes. P-town love transcends a mere seasonal fling.Recommended for:

This is 60 miles from Sandwich, and Sandwich is also 60 miles from Boston. This used to be a major fishing village and now it is a resort with beautiful Race Point beach and lots of places to bike ride. There are also great restaurants, one of my favorites is Fanizzi's by the Sea (539 Commercial St).

Site of the Pilgrims' landing in 1620 before continuing on to Plymouth,
East Coast writers and artists began gathering here in the 1920s. Enjoy the busy street life, great collection of small funky shops and terrific galleries, and wonderful places to eat in the center of town, or wander the back streets lined with quaint houses from almost 100 years ago and stop by one of Provincetown's several historical museums. Visit nearby Province Lands Visitor Center for more info on biking and hiking trails by the beaches and dunes at the tip of Cape Cod. And don't miss Race Point, the only place on the Contenential US that one can see the sun rise and set over water!

Provincetown is a lovely city, historically known as the landing of the pilgrims who came for freedom. Interestingly,today Provincetown or P-town is well known for the wide acceptance for gay and lesbians. The beaches and habors bring thousands of tourist every day. Even during the winter time, Provincetown has whale watching.
