A quaint New England town at the tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is a coastal resort destination known for its beaches, harbor and artists, all of which draw in the tourism. The Cape Cod area was first discovered by European explorers in 1602, and named thus after they caught a lot of codfish. The Pilgrims first anchored here in the harbor in 1620, where they then wrote and signed the Mayflower Compact. Even though the Pilgrims later settled across the bay, Provincetown continues to draw people here to this day with its historical importance and appealing beaches.
Come to Provincetown and see the Pilgrim Monument, designed by Willard Sears after the Torre del Mangia in Siena. The town itself boasts 8 buildings and two historic attractions on the National Register of Historic Places – make sure to explore Provincetown Historic District and Dune Shacks of Peaked Hill Bars Historic District! An artist’s colony and subsequent vacation destination for alternative lifestyle tourists, Provincetown has long promoted gay tourism. Attend one of the town’s many festivals and enjoy yourself at any of them, like the Portuguese Festival, Bear Week, or PBG’s Carnival Festival. Don’t forget the sunblock before you hit the beach!
