Ptown Hacks 2016 by Towleroad is here to help you get the most out of your visit to Provincetown, Massachusetts on Cape Cod this summer. (Download PDF: 2016 Ptown Hacks.)
Ptown is a gay town, meets an old Portuguese fishing village, meets a gastro-pub crawl, meets Popeye and Tennessee Williams on a pier, with the cast of Queer As Folk. (Look it up, kid.) It’s day drinks and lobster traps, cute t-shirts and new-wave tea dance. Visitors have been coming here for a long time…longer than anywhere else in America (which is why they call it America’s First Destination) so there’s a lot to do and see and figure out.
Ptown Hacks 2016
Our annual guide, now in its third year has just been published with more than just the tips. From the sublime–touring the dunes with an experienced guide–to the mundane issues of parking and peeing in a full resort village, we steer you to come correct.
This place has got it all, if by all you mean Brooklyn college nerds, Boston tatted bears, and Bulgarian bus boys; wedding venues, late-night pizza places, and the nation’s first “bed and beverage”; drag queens, a strip show, world-class entertainers, and twinks popping collars; planters punch and party boys; shopping and small plates; a harbor for squidding and two gyms for squating; Friday art openings, five bike rental places, family week, whale watching, water sports, a massive stone monument and a Pilgrim Hat-shaped swimming pool (open to the public).
We are kayaking, dancing, shopping, drinking, biking, and eating just ahead of you (not necessarily in that order), so flip through Ptown Hacks 2016 (above), download a PDF version (below), and look around town for printed copies at inns, restaurants, and other venues from Truro to the Breakwater. If you like the guide even find just one tip that makes your visit better, Please let our sponsors and advertisers know. It will make a difference.
