Cape Cod’s Most Popular Destination

By Linda Tancs

Provincetown, Massachusetts is one of the few places on the East Coast where you can watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.  Located at the tip of Cape Cod and preserved almost entirely as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore Park, its heritage dates back to the Pilgrims’ first landing in 1620.   Dune hiking is a popular attraction.  You can take a 40-minute hike on your own at the Snail Road entrance or opt for an organized tour, complete with lobster bakes or sunset and champagne tours.   Provincetown is a regional public transportation hub with fast ferry, bus and air service from Boston and frequent local shuttle service.
