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.

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 was 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.

Eastham Windmill

The Eastham Windmill was built by Thomas Paine in Plymouth in 1680. Later it was moved to Truro and then to Eastham where it is located today. It is a venue for the Eastham Windmill Weekend festival that is held here on the first weekend after Labor Day. Due to it's historic importance the windmill has found a place in the National Register of Historic Places.

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 to be 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. In the present day, the museum staff re-enact the rescue operation to the delight of visitors.

Race Point Lighthouse

Cape Cod's third lighthouse, Race Point Light was constructed in 1816. The original rubblestone tower was one of the first to feature a revolving beacon, and after significant refurbishment in 1876, was electrified in the year 1957. Today, the lighthouse is open for tours, and the restored Keeper's and Whistle Houses offer comfortable accommodation.

Provincetown Town Hall

A town hall is a symbolic representation of the cultural and social aspect of the region, the Provincetown Town Hall is no exception to this fact. It was given a complete makeover in 2010 and while modernizing the structure its Victorian character was retained. Paintings, polished oak floors, and an air-conditioned auditorium definitely adds to the the beauty of this place, however, the retractable chandelier with its opulence and class takes the cake. The newly renovated town hall can accommodate around 708 guests and can be hired for private events. Please note, prior permission is required or serving alcoholic drinks at this prestigious place.
