Relax by the water at Nauset Beach and Chatham Lighthouse Beach. Get outdoors at Shining Sea Bikeway and Old Silver Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Cornelia Carey Sanctuary (The Knob) (in Falmouth), Skaket Beach (in Orleans) and Corporation Beach (in Dennis). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Craigville Beach, contemplate the long history of Hoxie House, kick back and relax at Gray's Beach, and hike along Cape Cod Rail Trail.

A small resort town with a year-round population of just 3,000, Provincetown draws nearly 60,000 annual visitors with its scenic beaches, art colonies, galleries, theaters, and shops.
Get outdoors at Cape Cod National Seashore and Race Point Beach. Attractions like Corn Hill Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Provincetown: Eastham (Coast Guard Beach & Nauset Light Beach). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Herring Cove Beach, browse the collection at Provincetown Library, see the interesting displays at Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, and do a tasting at Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Provincetown trip planner.

Traveling by car from Hyannis to Provincetown takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. August in Provincetown sees daily highs of 78°F and lows of 62°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can ride a ferry back home.
