A Quaint Little Village by the Sea
Provincetown appears to be a quaint little village by sea. But looks can be deceiving. It is actually a very gay/lesbian friendly vacation destination. The streets are very crowded with pedestrians. Driving is almost impossible on the main street during the tourist season. Just outside of the town is a beach behind large sand dunes.

Homophobics beware! Though the Pilgrims touched land here first, there's very little Puritanical culture remaining. This is the home of artists, and the playground of the gay. If you have trouble dealing with homosexuals, I suggest visiting Chattem or Hyannis instead. It surprised me on my first visit, but have since learned to live with it.

Take some time to go to Race Point. You can rent bikes or walk around. I believe you can get a permit to even drive your car on the beach. It's about 1 1/2 miles outside main town Provincetown. Here are my feet on the beach at Race Point.
When one is hungry, price is not important?
Located just off the wharf, it seemed a good place for a lunch. The food was good, but for 2 adults and 2 children, $49.00 does seem a bit high, even in Ptown for sandwiches. I would recommend a less expensive place for a quick lunch.
Provincelands, Cape Cod National Seashore
The national park system has an interpretive center/visitor center here. Walking in there and obviously giving their bathroom a run for its money, we found out about a trail that traced the circumference of two kettle ponds that were set among a dunescape. The trail introduces the hiker with a pond completely blanketed in lily pads. Following along the sandy trail weaves through forest sometimes opening to semi-arid dune fields. The hike continued for about one hour, but give some spare time to sit pondside, to quietly wait for frog bellows.
