Provincetown and surroundings
Provincetown is, of course, a celebrated artist' Mecca, but the main industry these days is gay travel: sun, sand, sea, and lots of good-looking boys and girls. With its beautiful Provincetown guesthouses, fresh ocean air, sand dunes, and an active, year-round scene, Provincetown's popularity continues to grow.
Provincetown is located at the tip of the "elbow" of Cape Cod. The town has two narrow parallel main streets approximately three miles in length where many of the Provincetown guesthouses are located. A series of cross streets, resembling a ladder, connecting the two, start at the harbor's edge and run back toward the dunes. Commercial Street runs along the water, while Bradford Street runs parallel, one block back. The town is bordered by vast stretches of open dunes, pine and scrub oak forests, beaches and the open sea.
The pace in the surrounding towns is slow and quiet and the natural resources are spectacular. When describing the Lower Cape we start with natural wonders; vast beaches, dunes, sunsets on the bay and meandering roads lined with distinctive old homes. All that is beautiful and fulfilling here draws even the most casual visitor to this marvelous piece of land. It is the gateway to the National Seashore with its endless beaches.
In all, you'll find the comforts and conveniences you expect from the Provincetown guesthouses and other fine-lodging providers. Owners of Provincetown guesthouses take enormous pride in the way they restore, maintain and operate their properties, attending to every detail with a loving eye, while enhancing and updating their amenities to offer their guests the most comfortable experience possible.
