Provincetown Travel Guide: 200 reviews and 397 photos

What a fabulous little place (although I'm not so sure if I would feel the same way about it during the height of the summer when the population of 3000 swells to the region of 90,000 revellers!) sited on the northern tip of Cape Cod.

New England's Gay Mecca it certainly is, with bars, clubs and entertainment very clear about its target groups. But rubbing shoulders with Muscle Marys and wannabe drag queens are Mr & Mrs from Tennessee with their 3 children in tow. And all the better it is for it.

Fantastic location - its own beach but a short cycle away from the Cape Cod National Sea Shore and the glories of Herring Point and Race Bay - miles of almost unbroken beaches and sand-dunes.

And somehow, in spite of it being a major holiday destination, it remains a charming and pictureque town. White clapperboard may dominate, but its not twee. The fishing docks are prominent on the sea front, detemining that whatever happens, its still a working town.

    Provincetown, ahh, that brings back memories. I was there in the 1960s.
