This picturesque town with its narrow streets, unique architecture, quaint shingled buildings, colorful wharves, and old world fishing fleets is perched on the tip of Cape Cod. Situated along 4 miles of protected sandy beach, 40 miles out to sea, and surrounded by The Cape Cod National Seashore's 40 thousand acres of unspoiled beaches, sand dunes and forests.
The past 400 years, since the Mayflower's first landing in Provincetown, has created a community of uniquely independent people, emerging from its seafaring heritage. This has developed an atmosphere of freedom and tolerance which to this day attracts people with alternative lifestyles, artists, writers and anyone seeking the freedom to just be themselves.
Whether escaping the life of the city, seeking a healthy environment or just drawn by the natural beauty, peace, and solitude of the ocean and dunes, you too will fall in love with this genuine community of Provincetown.
