Sightseeing Beaches Nightlife

Birthplace of American Liberty

A small resort town with a year-round population of just 3,000, Provincetown draws nearly 60,000 annual visitors with its scenic beaches, art colonies, galleries, theaters, and shops. The popular "P-town," at the tip of Cape Cod, remains one of the country's most liberal and progressive cities, making it both a permanent home and a favored vacation destination for a growing LGBT community. Once a fishing and whaling community, this open-minded corner of the country now offers visitors a flamboyant nightlife and an untamed coastline; in fact, nearly three-quarters of the town's area is designated as preserved shoreline. Its pristine beaches provide some of the few spots on the Atlantic coast where you can watch the sun set into the water. When using our United States travel itinerary planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
