Almost one year ago today, the P-Town Historical Commission in partnership with TourSphere, introduced a high-tech way to learn more about our town at the tip of Cape Cod. Available for both Microsoft and Android platforms, the Provincetown Mobile Tour App is THE one thing you should have with you during your area bed and breakfast getaway!
This app is free to everyone, thanks to those who have already visited. Proving that you DO get something good back from add-on charges, this app was partially paid for by room occupancy taxes collected from our very inns!
If you want to download the app, do make sure you have a decent amount of space available on your mobile device. The app itself is just over 1 Megabyte in size, but once you open it, it downloads almost 57 Megabytes of additional information. But its worth every moment of download and every bit of space used.
The P-town Tour is jam-packed with beautiful photography by Ewa Nogiec, and well-written narratives containing information consolidated by David Dunlap, pertaining to each tour-stop building. Each site includes an audio snippet (usually between 1-2 minutes) of additional information contributed by a variety of individuals, which is the icing on the cake of this beautifully constructed tour program.
The tour leads you down Commercial Street, our town’s “main drag.” 50 significant buildings and sites of historical importance are highlighted. Start at one end of Commercial Street, or use the map to choose the building closest to you during your visit. Or if you’d rather, explore town from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world – you can relive your vacation to the tip of Cape Cod, or just learn about our town from afar!
To get the free app, just do a search in your device’s app store, go to provincetown.toursphere.com, or use the handy-dandy QR code in this post!
The Innkeepers of The Distinctive Inns of Provincetown welcome you to your P-Town getaway, and we hope you enjoy this effort by our town to make your visit even more enjoyable!
