Provincetown, MA – The first days of spring are here and Provincetown is blooming! Our many accommodations are welcoming guests, shops are popping open, restaurants are lighting their stoves and there’s plenty of entertainment and attractions for you to enjoy.

With over 80 inns and guesthouses, Provincetown is home to a fabulous array of places to stay. From intimate escapes to vacations with the whole family, you will find something that’s just perfect. Make the trip even easier when fast ferry services from Boston start crossing Cape Cod Bay again in mid-May.
If shopping is your passion, we have nearly 200 boutique shopsopening for the season. With a world class collection of art galleriesamong them, many offerings reflect Provincetown’s rich history and deep connection to the sea.  Just browsing can be a treasure hunt so rest on the benches in front of Town Hall if you need a break,
then keep exploring!

When all that shopping works up an appetite, make sure you try one of the 60 eateries that Provincetown is famous for. Enjoy fresh local seafood served at a table overlooking the harbor or a lobster with bib and all. Cap off the night with a sweet treat like homemade fudge or stroll Commercial Street with some ice cream. From fine cuisine to the basics that make you feel like a kid, there’s something to satisfy any craving.

With all the unique shopping and delicious food, you can’t forget the amazing attractions and incredible nightlife!  The Provincetown Art Association and Museum is welcoming visitors to the most attended art museum on Cape Cod so make plans early.  The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum reopens April 1st with a tribute to Provincetown’s place in art and theater history with an enhanced “Great Summer of 1916″exhibit.
It wouldn’t be spring without the triumphant return of the whales to our waters! They will soon be splashing around Provincetown and whale watches start leaving MacMillan Wharf in Mid-April to see the spectacle. For those who prefer their adventures on dry land, the dune tours start their 71st season on April 15th.

Spring is also the time to mark your calendar for special events! On Sunday, April 9th the Provincetown Recreation Department celebrates Spring with a festive breakfast followed by an Egg Hunt at the Pilgrim Monument at 10:30. It’s free and fun for the entire family!  Starting April 21st, the Provincetown Public Library is hosting its 2nd Annual Moby-Dick Reading Marathon for lovers of literature and that classic tale.
Nights bring out the sparkle in Provincetown and the Miss Gay Massachusetts US of A will be an evening of pageantry and more April 15 & 16.  With no less glamour, the Gays for Patsy Dance Club brings its annual Spring Stomp to town April 28-30.
