Provincetown, Massachusetts

Provincetown, Massachusetts

For Fourth of July, JenniSixx and I 
decided to take the ferry to Provincetown  (P-town) for the day.

Having done the three plus hour drive before, 
we felt that it would be better to take the ferry.

Taking the ferry was awesome.
It was clean, air-conditioned, and has free wifi.
The staff was also super friendly and helpful.

The only down side was that it was packed on the boat.
So much in fact, that people were sitting on the floor 
as there were not enough seats inside for people.
It was way too cold to sit outside.





We spent the day walking around town, going in and out of the stores.
It was cloudy and on the cool side while we were there.
However, we did sit by the water for a bit and enjoyed watching
all the boats go by. It's a great place to sit and people watch.

 P-town is filled with many shops, restaurants, and galleries. 
It really is a great place to visit. Seeing as the town is tiny,
it makes for a perfect day trip.

The drive from Boston is a little over three hours and that is without traffic.
Do yourself a favor and take the ferry
It was well worth the ticket price.

What your favorite towns to visit for the day??
Let me know, I love hearing from you.
Best, Marie

  7. I've never been to P-Town but I definitely need to check it out sometime! I usually go to Mashpee or Falmouth when I go to the cape since we have friends with family houses there. I love the cape!

  9. Great pictures! The town is so colorful! I've always wanted to visit, but when we were in Boston last May we only drove to Falmouth. It was too cold (and dead) to attempt any father. I'll definitely keep the ferry in mind.

  16. Oh this looks so charming reminds me of Fire Island my friend Angela the one in the DUMBO post, visits there every summer, her uncle lives there. When I lived in Seattle I went to the San Juan Islands a few times and took the ferry (4 hours) it is so gorgeous up there truly mind blowing.
