Highland Lighthouse

Famously known as the Cape Cod Light, the Highland Light is an active lighthouse and also said to be the tallest and oldest lighthouse on Cape Cod. The lighthouse is accessible to the public from May through October- tours are available too, while the grounds can be visited throughout the year. This lighthouse occupies a spot on the National Register of Historic Places as the Highland Light Station.

Herring Cove Beach

The practically endless stretch of golden sands, west of the city center, ranks among some of the best beaches in the nation. Blessed with calm waters and a light surf, Herring Cove Beach offers excellent opportunities for swimming as well as water sports. Evenings are one of the best times to visit the beach as there's a fair amount of locals and visitors to enjoy the glorious sunset. The beach has been impeccably maintained and has parking and other basic facilities.

Pilgrim Monument

Few people know that the pilgrims first struck land in Provincetown, on November 21, 1620, before continuing on to Plymouth. While anchored in Provincetown Harbor, the Pilgrims signed the Mayflower Compact, dedicating themselves to a community governed by democratic rule. This tower, built in 1910 to commemorate that landing, was modeled after the clock tower of the Palazzo Pubblico (specifically the Torre del Mangia) in Siena, Italy. A climb to the top affords one of the best views on the entire Cape, and the tower also incorporates the Provincetown Museum.

Nickerson State Park

A sizable stretch of green, in the Cape Cod region, Nickerson State Park is a must visit for adventure seekers and nature lovers alike. Covering a massive 1,967 acres (796 hectares) this state-owned park is peppered with sandy soil, scrub pines and a number of kettle ponds that make it one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems in the area. Featuring numerous hiking trails, trek routes, campgrounds and fishing areas, this is also one of the hot-spots for outdoor activities and nature tours.

Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History's main objective is to make people more aware of the environment and their surroundings. The museum is divided into two floors dedicated to the flora and fauna of the region which includes exhibits on whales, birds, reptiles and amphibians found in the region. There is a library for extra research and a shop where you can find souvenirs to remind you of the environment around you. The museum also holds various activities to provide a learning experience for children as well as adults! Admission and open hours vary seasonally.

Old Harbor Life-Saving Station

Old Harbor Life-Saving Museum is an ode to a historic rescue station which helped save the lives of over 100,000 people during disastrous times. Volunteers called surf-men were enlisted to light a fire as soon as they spotted a ship which seemed lost at sea. They would send small boats out into the sea for the rescue operation, or tie a line and pull each crew member to the shore. Every Thursday, the museum staff re-enact the rescue operation to the delight of visitors. Call for details
