Provincetown is THE gay arts and entertainment mecca featuring some of the nation’s most celebrated artists, writers, LGBTQ advocates, and creative thinkers. Lured here by the scenic landscapes, amazing colors, fellow artists, and tolerant social culture, esteemed luminaries such as Mary Oliver, Jack Kerouac, Henry David Thoreau, Charles Hawthorne, Michael Cunningham, Norman Mailer, and Tony Kushner have at one time called Provincetown their home. Today, Provincetown is the oldest continuing art colony in the United States, home to more than 60 art galleries and dozens of live entertainment venues, bars and nightclubs, museums, and Pilgrim Monument, the tallest all-granite structure in the country. You’ll experience Cape Cod’s natural beauty on our whale watches and dune tours, and you’ll step into history when visiting our lighthouses. Every season, gay and lesbian travelers flock here to sing, dance, and revel their way through a truly unforgettable vacation!
