Located at the very tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is a thriving, vibrant community where the past, present and future come together in a unique way. While not officially incorporated until 1727, The Mayflower Pilgrims actually set foot on land in Provincetown first, before eventually moving on to Plymouth; and the Mayflower Compact, one of the earliest documents of American democracy, was signed in Provincetown Harbor on November 11, 1620. The town gained an early reputation as a sort of “renegade town”, settled mostly by “wandering traders and fishermen who dropped in temporarily because of the excellent harbor,” according to a 1915 newspaper article. A mecca for the creative, the quirky, and the queer, Provincetown has grown into a world-class destination for people from every walk of life. A vibrant nightlife, thriving artists’ community, stunning natural beauty and rich cultural heritage make it hard to resist this multi-faceted jewel of a Cape Cod town. Provincetown famously embraces people from all cultures and backgrounds, and has long been a safe and welcoming destination for LGBTQ travelers from all over the world. Proud of its long and colorful history, “P’Town” always keeps an eye on the past while its feet are planted firmly in the present, with no shortage of modern-day creature comforts or superb dining; and as a designated Green Community with an emphasis on sustainable development and responsible environmental practices, also keeps a watchful eye toward the future.
With its sand dunes, salty air, winding roads and quaint little villages, songwriters may just have been thinking about Truro when they penned Patti Page’s famous song “Old Cape Cod.” Known for spectacular sandy cliffs and dramatic vistas made famous by artists like Edward Hopper, the tiny town has an area of just over 26 square miles and a year-round population barely topping 2,000, yet still offers a wide variety of things to do and see. In one day, visitors can enjoy one of several beautiful beaches, visit a winery, tour Cape Cod’s oldest lighthouse, and enjoy first-class entertainment on summer evenings under the tent at Payomet Performing Arts. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the outstanding nature trails of the Cape Cod National Seashore, or a round of golf at America’s oldest links course, Highland Links. First settled in 1700 and incorporated in 1709, Truro is a small town full of history and charm, and has intentionally remained quiet and unpretentious, and yet the hustle and bustle of Hyannis and the glittering nightlife of Provincetown are still just a short drive away.
For a town which is only two miles wide, Wellfleet manages to pack in a wide variety of sights to see, places to go, and even things to taste. The spectacular beaches of the Cape Cod National Seashore line the ocean side of the town on the east, and the placid waters of Cape Cod Bay lie to the west. In between are everything from a 650-acre wildlife sanctuary, a golf course, fresh water remnants of the Ice Age known as “kettle ponds,” to the Cape Cod Rail Trail- a 22-mile paved biking and walking trail which follows the path of an old rail line up to the town of Dennis. Fans of art and culture will not be disappointed by Wellfleet’s thriving gallery scene or the world-class live theater offered at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater. Wellfleet oysters are known and prized far and wide for their delicious taste, and a variety of restaurants offer them up along with other delectable Cape Cod specialties. Visitors can also harvest their very own oysters with a recreational shellfish permit available during the summer months or scoop them up by the dozen at the wildly popular OysterFest held each year in October.
