Provincetown—a brush with history

Visitors to Provincetown are following in the footsteps of history. This town on the northern tip of Cape Cod is the site of the “Mayflower” landing in 1620, which brought the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World. A few years earlier, the English explorer and founder of the Jamestown colony in Virginia, Benjamin Gosnold, had led a pioneering expedition to the cape and named it after the profusion of codfish in its waters. Today, this freewheeling seaside resort is a magnet for artists, bohemians, and fans of alternative culture, with demand for Provincetown vacation rentals peaking during the summer festival season.

Things to do

Provincetown through local eyes

Friendly, laid-back “P-town”, as the locals call it, is compact enough to explore easily on foot. Downtown Provincetown vacation rentals place you at the heart of the resort’s fabled cultural and social scene. Commercial Street is lined with quirky stores and bohemian bars, and the lively waterfront is a popular spot for socializing and dining. The Fine Arts Work Center runs a prestigious program of visiting artists and writers, Provincetown Art Association and Museum chronicles the origins of one of the country’s oldest art colonies, while the iconic Pilgrim Monument commemorates the signing of the Mayflower Compact in 1620.

Activities

Discover Provincetown’s unique dunescape

A guided tour of the fascinating historic district of Dune Shacks of Peaked Hill Bars showcases the creative side of this unique community. The dune shacks are among the heritage highlights of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Originally built to provide shelter for shipwrecked sailors, the secluded shacks gradually became popular as summer homes for artists and writers, including Eugene O’Neill, Jack Kerouac, and Jackson Pollock. Dune tours depart from downtown Provincetown and range from informative 1-hour narrated trips to specialist watercolor-painting days and sunset tours culminating in a traditional New England clambake.

Weather

Provincetown’s benevolent climate

Demand for Provincetown vacation rentals is highest during the summer months, when the waters around the cape keep the heat comfortable and reduce humidity. From June through August, temperatures hover around the pleasant high-70s, bringing a much-appreciated contrast to the steaming city. Late spring and fall are popular times to skip the crowds of high summer and benefit from mid-season bargains, with October in particular retaining its warmth well into the evening. Provincetown vacation rentals with a barbecue are the perfect excuse to keep the pleasures of alfresco dining alive for as long as possible.

Natural features

Provincetown—part of a protected coast

Provincetown is incorporated within the protected environment of Cape Cod National Seashore, which encompasses wetland, woodland, and beach habitats. A network of paved cycle and walking trails opens up the possibility of exploring the scenic beauty of this unspoiled coast and catching glimpses of its native wildlife, without damaging its fragile ecosystem. Wild cranberry bogs are a special feature of the inland peninsula, while its shoreline provides a safe nesting site for many federally protected species, including the endangered piping plover and the elusive spadefoot toad.
