Planning The Perfect P-town Itinerary

We’ve got this P-town thing down so, naturally, we’re prepared to share our insider intel with our guests. Here, explore a season’s-worth of experiences that we think make Provincetown unique. From gallery strolls to bike rentals to a daily (not-your-mother’s) Tea Dance, summer in P-town is all about fun.

Bike Rentals

Pedaling through downtown and its environs is a must and there are a trio of local bike shops standing ready with top-notch rentals. See our friends at Ptown Bikes, Gale Force Bikes or Bike Shack and get set to explore the area by beach cruiser or your wheels of choice.

Tea Dance at the Boatslip Beach Club

Wind down a great day in P-town at this popular LGBT (but very hetero-friendly) social gathering. Held daily, it’s the perfect place to sip cocktails, show off your dance moves, and make new friends. And if shaking your groove thang to disco beats is not your cup of tea, the Tea Dance delivers the best-ever people-watching. Daily, 4:00 - 7:00 pm.

Rock and Lobster Roll at Canteen

Best lobster roll on Cape Cod? Look no further. Canteen has succeeded in earning this coveted title. Place your order at the counter, find a table in the outdoor patio, and enjoy the sublime panoramic views of Provincetown Harbor. We know, it’s bliss.

Gallery Strolls

If you love art, you’ll make fast friends among the throngs flowing in and out of dozens of galleries clustered along the eastern end of Commercial Street. The mood still evokes the setting of 100 years ago, when Provincetown established its reputation as the nation’s largest art colony. Don’t miss these four faves: Berta Walker Gallery, Art Market Provincetown, Schoolhouse Gallery, and Albert Merola Gallery.
