Provincetown, Massachusetts is the perfect place to experience natural beauty, relax on the pristine sand of uncrowded Cape Cod beaches, and take a step back to an earlier era in American history. Provincetown art museums and history museums showcase preserved colonial artifacts and the work of prominent contemporary artists. Provincetown spas and golf courses offer a day of luxury relaxation, and the miles of nature trails that wind through the local state parks along scenic overlooks can provide the perfect wilderness escape. Come here for an idyllic family vacation, a romantic excursion, or a long weekend getaway with friends. Find a private vacation rental, like a summer home or condo, with balcony views of the ocean. Relax in style and invite your family and friends for a barbeque on the deck or a sunset campfire on the beach.
Wake up each morning and enjoy coffee on the deck of your vacation rental, then head into town and explore the shops and art galleries of the Provincetown village center. Spend the afternoon on the beach swimming, sailing, or just relaxing on the sand with a good book. After the sun goes down, experience live music, warm hospitality, and world-class seafood at the award winning restaurants and night spots around the harbor. Then head home to your beachfront rental and fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves.
