    Driving in Provincetown

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
