Great views from the top. The stairs aren't really stairs, they're... elongated platforms with a step. It makes walking and and getting back down that much easier. After your climb back down kick back on the Adirondack chairs on the lawn that look at the...More

We made it to the top with an 8 month old! It was a tough climb, but totally worth it! Awesome views on a clear day! Could see Boston outline!

We learned the sad history on native American and European immigrants. The view from the top of the tower is worth climbing the steps.

The monument is an amazing monolith......you an see it from miles and miles away. What a tribute to the pilgrims. I didn't realize that the Mayflower stopped in Provincetown before they made it to Plymouth rock. Very interesting displays and videos.

Like others have said, well worth the climb for the amazing view. Also loved the displays/museum/gift shop before going into monument. We parked in a lot but there was parking there for a fee.

We had a wonderful time walking up to the top of the Pilgrim Monument. It was very doable thanks to the design of mostly ramps and relatively few stairs. It was interesting to see "benefactor" stones from various states and organizations as we climbed our...More

We spent an hour walking up the stairs and ramps to Pilgrim Monument and walking around on the observation desk. On a clear day (as we had) you can see all the way to Boston. This replica of the Siena Tower in Italy is beautiful....More

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
