Provincetown ©
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 Herring Cove Beach. Attractions like Race Point Beach and Nauset Light Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from Provincetown to Eastham to see Coast Guard Beach about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, don't miss a visit to Commercial Street, do a tasting at Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod, and kick back and relax at Corn Hill Beach.

Plan a trip to Provincetown easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

You can drive from Hyannis to Provincetown in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In August, plan for daily highs up to 78°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) to allow enough time to ride a ferry back home.
