Provincetown

Provincetown è una delle cittadine più conosciute di Cape Cod, con una ricca storia culturale ed artistica, oltre a molti diversivi contemporanei. I padri pellegrini toccarono il Mondo Nuovo per la prima volta proprio qui, e qui firmarono lo storico Mayflower Compact. Più tardi si sviluppò una colonia di artisti, che attirò l'elite intellettuale e creò molte delle attuali istituzioni artistico letterarie. Oggi Provincetown è un prospero centro culturale e meta di villeggiatura, famosa per i suoi molti alberghi, ristoranti, negozi, meravigliosi tramonti e vibrante comunità gay e lesbica.
