Not for the average bear! Provincetown which can be found at http://www.provincetown.com is a beautiful little town at the far end of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. We arrived for a four day stay early in August 2009. We had spent the previous three days on Martha's vineyard which was beautiful and quiet.

P'town, as the locals like to call it is a great mix of gay and straight tourists as well as a year round portuguese american community left over from the days of whaling and cod fishing. The biggest industry in town these days apart from hotels and restaurants must be whale watching which we did for sunset on our second day, http://whalewatch.com.

We saw a ton of whales and had a memorable day out. We stayed at the Carriage House Provincetown - a bed and breakfast http://www.thecarriagehse.com, which is close to the town center but far enough away to be quiet and tranquil. Overall everyone was friendly and welcoming. There is a lot of open space nearby in the national seashore park where all the best beaches can be found. Go! you'll love it!

Provincetown is a town with a long and beautiful history that goes way back to 1602 when Explorer Bartholomew Gosnold found this place abundant in fish and set in a beautiful location. All those who followed and settled here were amazed by the place including painter Charles Hawthorne who, discovering what was then a little fishing settlement, decided to stay and helped found the Provincetown Art Association & Museum in 1914. He would be proud to see it still functioning. At first having only a few paintings donated by local artists, now the museum has an impressive collection of art belonging to both modernist and classicist artists.... Read more »
