As we commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrim’s Landing, there has never been a better time for gay travelers to visit Provincetown. With its miles of sandy beaches along the National Seashore, highlighted with dunes, bike trails, and historic lighthouses, and its extraordinary resorts, restaurants, nightlife, and art galleries, Provincetown is a uniquely special LGBTQ vacation destination. Situated at the tip of beautiful Cape Cod, 60 miles out to sea, this is a place where people come together to celebrate diversity, individuality, arts, and culture. Every corner you turn offers amazing views, sights, and sounds with live music, entertainment, drag shows, tea dances, festivals, museums, whale watches, shopping, and eye candy all around.
Provincetown has a long and colorful history beginning with its origins as a quaint Portuguese fishing village through its evolution into the oldest continuous art colony as well as the best gay tourist destination in the country. Each season offers visitors something new and different. From Pride Weekend in June to the weeklong Carnival celebration in August, to Women’s Week in October, Holly Folly in early December, and First Light at year’s end, Provincetown is a truly magical place for LGBTQ travelers any time of year.
