Your guide to Provincetown

Welcome to Provincetown

Located at the far tip of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod peninsula, Provincetown is a small coastal community with a big reputation for good times. The popular summer destination is a magnet for seekers of sun and fun up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Famously welcoming, Provincetown’s open-minded attitude has made it popular with LGBTQ+ travelers, who have helped shape much of its current nightlife scene.

Fittingly for a community made up mostly of surf and sand, Provincetown’s seafood shines bright in the eateries that dot the city’s main thoroughfare. But some of its history as a Portuguese fishing village is also evident at local bakeries and restaurants around town. That history forms one element of the town’s two historic districts. The other comes from hosting and supporting artists. Considered the country’s oldest continuing art colony, Provincetown’s museums and many galleries showcase local artists, while its theater scene receives national acclaim for its more than 100 years of groundbreaking productions.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Provincetown

Provincetown’s high season brings warm, dry summer weather and long sunny days. Crowds line the streets in August for Carnival Week, seven days of pool parties, parades, and costume balls. Fall and spring see cooler, wetter weather, but remain relatively mild, giving you an opportunity to more easily and affordably explore Provincetown’s history, art, and boutique shopping. In winter, the town practically hibernates. Many restaurants and galleries shutter for the season, and other businesses limit their hours. But if you’re willing to brave the chilly temperatures, it becomes a place to hunker down, cozy up, and get away from everything else.

Top things to do in Provincetown

The Dune Shacks

When a famous American playwright rented a decommissioned lifesaving station in 1919 in which to write among the Provincetown sand dunes, he cemented a tradition. Today, 19 shacks remain in the Peaked Hills Bars Historic District, many of which operate as artist and writer residencies. While you can take tours of the dunes, adventurous travelers can also leave their shoes at the trailhead off Snail Road and walk up the soft sand path on their own.

Herring Cove Beach

At the very tip of the Cape Cod Peninsula, Herring Cove Beach enjoys smooth sand and calmer waves. The gentler water of the only bay-facing beach here brings in hordes of swimmers on hot summer days, while concerts in the evenings keep people there long after the stunning sunset.

Province Lands Bike Trail

This 5.5-mile paved path winds through the National Seashore, looping among cranberry bogs, pine forests, and sand dunes. Spur trails shoot off toward various beaches, ponds, and trailheads, making it a nice way to explore the area, especially when you add in stops for picnicking and swimming.
