Provincetown is filled with history, from the 1st landing of the Mayflower to the Portuguese influence. Visit and climb the Pilgrim Monument and visit the Museum. Little town with lots of activity. The people are friendly and relaxed.

This is the main drag in Provincetown and it's a delight to experience. Ice cream, fudge and tee shirts, of course. But also a variety of eclectic shops, coffee, good restaurants and just great street life and people watching. Like the wharf in San Francisco,...More

I found the most convenient parking at Aruba's Cafe .Steps from the beach $5.00 if dining at the Cafe and $12.00 all day . Well worth it. Note those are last seasons pricing.
