Casual, bohemian, vibrant, exciting, safe, secure, and peaceful.
The location of Provincetown, MA, at the very tip of Cape Cod, has helped make the town the unique and magical destination that it is today.
When you visit Provincetown, you will discover it is truly a world unto itself.
First, blend together sandy beaches, the Atlantic Ocean, landmark lighthouses, distinctive architecture, and amazing light. Next add the cafés, restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, and art galleries that skirt Commercial Street. Then embrace the artists, musicians, writers, fishermen, gays, lesbians, mothers, fathers, children, drag queens, and our wacky, wonderful, and diverse community. These elements all come together to make Provincetown a year-round vacation haven.
There is always something to do.
Enjoy the romance of a Valentine's Weekend in February, the International Film Festival and Portuguese Festival in June, the fun of 4th of July week, the Carnival Parade in August, Thanksgiving in the fall, or the Holly Folly in December. Visit our events section for more specific dates and details.
If your idea of relaxing is your feet up with a good book, cycling the bike trails, taking a whale-watching trip, deep sea fishing, strolling the miles of unspoiled sandy beaches, climbing the Pilgrim Monument, or just people watching from a table at a street café on Commercial Street, then you're sure to find it right here.
