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 a sense of the local culture at Fort Hill Rural Historic District and Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Corn Hill Beach and Highland Light. Get out of town with these interesting Provincetown side-trips: Eastham (Nauset Lighthouse, Salt Pond Visitor Center, & more). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Race Point Beach, explore the world behind art at Provincetown Town Hall, stop by Atlantic Spice Company, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

"The Capital of the Cape," Hyannis serves as Cape Cod's main transportation and commercial hub.
Get some cultural insight at Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen and Whydah Pirate Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Edward Gorey House and Chatham's Godfrey Windmill. Explore Hyannis' surroundings by going to Chatham Marconi Maritime Center (in North Chatham), Cape Cod Canal (in Buzzards Bay) and Brewster Store (in Brewster). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, enjoy the sand and surf at Bass River Beach, learn more about the world around you at Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Nauset Beach.
