Your choice of where to stay can set the mood for your entire vacation. Provincetown offers a large variety of lodging accommodations that will suite your needs and taste, ranging from Provincetown hotels, lovely guesthouses and inns to free-standing multi-bedroom homes on the waterfront. Provincetown can provide accommodations that are just right for you and your group.
There are several full service Provincetown hotels with in-house restaurants, nightclubs and daily maid service. If a traditional, American-style motel is your choice, you can find those right here in Provincetown itself, and also along Beach Point - the long strip along Route 6a, leading into town. If the outdoors attracts you more, there are 2 campgrounds right in town and several more just across the town line in neighboring Troro. Or you could opt for a free standing, multi-bedroom home on the waterfront to host a big family vacation… or a romantic room in a refurbished Victorian Captain's house dating back to the grant days of whaling on the Cape. A stay at a Provincetown guesthouse can be your entrance into an entire social milieu as well. Many offer afternoon social hours, group hot tubs and morning breakfasts where new friends can gather and share good times.
Provincetown and surroundings
Situated on the northern tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is bordered by Truro on the east and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on all other sides. It is 49 miles north of Hyannis, 78 miles east of Plymouth, 114 miles southeast of Boston, and 290 miles from New York City. The town has two narrow parallel main streets approximately three miles in length. 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 hotels and other fine-lodging providers. Provincetown hotels, bed and breakfast and guesthouse owners take enormous pride in the way they restore, maintain and run 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.
