Provincetown is located at the very tip of Cape Cod. Once one of the most productive whaling ports on the east coast, Provincetown is now a hub for whale watching. While Provincetown still has an active community of fishermen, it has evolved into a very sophisticated, highly diverse and cosmopolitan town. It is the Cape’s premier destination for gay and lesbian tourists and residents. The quaint seaside Town is packed with unique and varied boutiques. With ferry service to and from Boston, Provincetown has also become a popular day trip destination. In addition to having a vibrant downtown, Provincetown is also home to the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. The park has preserved almost three quarters of the Town’s landscape. There are beautiful vistas of sweeping dunes and massive expanses of white sand beach. Race Point is contained within the park and is where the ocean side and bay side waters meet. Watching sunsets at Race Point, as the sun melts into the sea is a truly spectacular experience.
