safe in Provincetown
Over the years Provincetown has had a slightly seedy complexion (under its more glamorous artistic veneer). But it does not seem that it has earned that reputation if you look at the crime statistics.
1 murder in 5 years; 2 rapes in 6 years; no robberies; less than 20 assaults (fights) per year.
Provincetown rates about a 2 out of 10, where 0 is no crime and 10 is very dangerous.
You have about a one in one thousand chance of seeing a registered sex offender. Pretty slim chance.
All in all, Provincetown is really pretty safe. So use common caution; lock doors, don't go alone into strange areas late at night; know where the kids are. That should be enough to ensure you a safe vacation here.

Green Heads, Mosquitoes, and No See ‘Ems
As beautiful as the Cape is, bugs are a reality of life here. Day and especially night, you’ll want to layer on the bug spray. And if you’re going to be outside, be sure to bring a can with you so that you can spray more on later.

Driving in Provincetown
Driving in Provincetown is very difficult. The streets are very narrow and full of pedestrians. Most visitors park their cars at their residence and walk. However a car is necessary if you plan to travel to the beaches. They are a little ways from the town section and its easier to drive or ride a bike.
Nothing I can think of, unless...
Nothing I can think of, unless you're uncomfortable around happy and gay people or you don't like to wear sunscreen. I love that it doesn't have the macho beach feel of the majority of beach towns. If you're not a good swimmer, don't go out too far on the ocean side. And beware the earwigs!
