Provincetown

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 Herring Cove Beach and Race Point Beach. Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum and Rice-Polak Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Provincetown: Nauset Beach (in Orleans), Coast Guard Beach (in Eastham) and Chatham Marconi Maritime Center (in North Chatham). There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get to know the fascinating history of Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, shop like a local with Cortile Gallery, and take in the exciting artwork at Charles-Baltivik Gallery and Sculpture Garden.

Plan my Provincetown trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Pittsburgh to Provincetown is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also fly; or drive. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Pittsburgh in June, with highs in Provincetown at 72°F and lows at 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Sandwich.

Sandwich is a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, United States. Heritage Museums & Gardens and Highfield Hall & Gardens are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visiting Shining Sea Bikeway and Sandwich Fish Hatchery will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Sandwich: Cornelia Carey Sanctuary (The Knob) (in Falmouth), Edward Gorey House (in Yarmouth Port) and Nobska Point Lighthouse (in Woods Hole). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Sandwich Glass Museum, shop like a local with Chatham Pier and Fish Market, take in the exciting artwork at McDermott Glass Studio, and take in nature's colorful creations at Giving Tree Gallery and Sculpture Garden.

To find ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Sandwich driving holiday planner.

Getting from Provincetown to Sandwich by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 73°F in June, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
