Travel Tips for Provincetown

Hanging out at the Beach

by ABL1958

Our entertainment was hanging out at the beaches. My son wanted 'big surf' and my daughter 'medium surf'. can find almost anything there if you go to the right places. The Bay side of the Cape is more sheltered so the waves are almost mere ripples, but that is good for little ones. The water is generally shallow and in high tide one can walk out into the water at waist level forever. On the Atlantic side there is more exposure and therefore better surf although when we were there even that was unimpressive. Wave height varies a lot from day to day depending on the weather; it's a hit-or-miss deal. I noticed that the sand on the Bay side is more coarse and rocky, and on the Atlantic side it's finer. The sand color ranges from light tan to almost a gold color. I was a disappointed beach-comber until our last day there when I actually found a few crab shells.....I think there are just too many people around and the nicest shells are snatched up quickly. We did find a host of sanddollars on the sea floor while swimming on the Bay side, but taking live creatures out of the beach area is illegal. Almost all of the beaches have bathroom/changing room facilities and snack bars. There is an entrance fee to the beaches that averages $10 USD a day but after 5 pm that is reduced or sometimes entrance is free. Almost all the public beaches are closed from midnight to 6AM. They are well-patrolled by the park service. For an additional fee and a permit obtained from the local town offices you can build fires on the beaches...something I would have loved to do but didn't get a chance to. But there is always next time! Not to be forgotten is the Cape Cod National Seashore, acres and acres of land along the shore and inland that are preserved. There are bike paths galore and walking trails that weave through low-growing shrubs and sanddunes. In June the beach-roses bloom in a blaze of deep pink, white, and magenta of the only flowers that can withstand the winter winds and cold of the area.
There is someone I know who I'd like to walk with along such a beach as shown below, who loves the sea as much as I do, enjoying the sea breeze....sunsets like these bring out the romantic side of people.

Provincetown can be incredibly overcrowded in the high season. Wherever you go, there are likely to be like-mided people who just want to get away from it all - even if only for a few hours. Bicycles give you some freedom (as would a car - although you would then be confronted with the traffic heading in and out of the town). The salt marshes and tidal flats are one option (and out of season these really are moreorless deserted) as are the dunes of Race Point.

Seaside architecture ~

by Pawtuxet

Natural shingles, picket fences, interesting gates framing precious little gardens filled with perennials...large or small...each house has its own beauty. So much to see walking down one street. First we turned right from the main intersection.. and that's where most of the retail is...but turn left from the intersection and things quiet down. You will find many marvelous galleries as well as all the beautiful gardens, homes, and quick little views in between the houses. Things are packed pretty tightly on this little spit of land, but there are volumes included for your pleasure.

Marlene found one for sale! She picked up the information, but think it was a bit too pricey for her.

And here in Provincetown we finish our trip to Cape Cod.
And here we walk an hour and visit a lot of souvenirshops and bij real liquorice, and eat a good meal in one of the good bars.
It was a pleasant trip and we have a lot of fun there.
