Getting around Provincetown is easy given its size – 2.5 from the beginning of town to the West End Jetty.
Most guest houses, inns, and hotels in the East and West Ends are within 5-15 minutes walking distance to the center of town. The quickest way to get around is by bike, but there are taxis and pedicabs too!

Mix of residential, art galleries, shops and restaurants. Architecture is classic Cape Cod with beautiful gardens.

Where to begin … this is the center, so there’s lots!
This center of town has the most shops too!
Take out: There are plenty of takeout shops and treats!
Residential, with a mix of small shops and restaurants. Quintessential cape homes with beautiful perennial gardens. Very nice for walks.
A bit more lively than the East End, but not busy like the center. And it’s closer to Herring Cove Beach.
