Welcome to Provincetown

An Oasis on the Cape

Just about everyone who sets foot on the sandy shore of Provincetown says there is something magical about this place. Maybe it’s because it sits at the edge of the continent, 60 miles out to sea, in a place that swirls together so many people and experiences. Visitors are drawn to this remote swatch of land for the beautiful beaches and the welcoming restaurants, the art galleries and the charming shops. A favorite LGBTQ+ destination, Provincetown celebrates individuality and freedom of expression. It also has a rich creative history as the oldest continuous art colony in the country. Each season offers visitors something new, something different. From Carnival in August to Women’s Week in October and First Light at year’s end, Provincetown beckons any time of year.
