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.
