If you have a bike or rent one on the Cape, there are many great places to explore! Check out some of our favorites below:
Province Lands Bike Trail – www.nps.gov/caco/planyourvisit/province-lands-bike-trail.htm
This 5.5 mile trail loops around the Province Lands, passing through pine forests, sandy dunes, and low-lying cranberry bogs. There are connections to both Herring Cove and Race Point beaches, as well as Bennett Pond.
As is tradition each year, we recently experienced the annual lighting of the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown. This year was extra special, however, as it celebrated the 400 year anniversary of the Pilgrim’s landing in Ptown. As their website states: “We illuminate the monument for everyone who needs a little light and love. As a beacon of tolerance and hope for over 100 years, we honor those throughout our world who do not enjoy the acceptance and peace we are thankful for.”
The Highland Lighthouse (also known as Cape Cod Lighthouse) is one of the most famous on Cape Cod – and even included in Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau in 1865:
“THIS LIGHT-HOUSE, known to mariners as the Cape Cod or Highland Light,
is one of our “primary sea-coast lights,” and is usually the first seen by
those approaching the entrance of Massachusetts Bay from Europe.”

Although it is difficult to pick our favorite time of day in Provincetown, sunset certainly ranks high on the list! Thanks to our guests who sent us these amazing sunset photos – simply beautiful! Do you have one to share? Send it to us!
In a recent article published by Tripadvisor, our very own Race Point Beach was ranked in the Top 25 beaches in the United States for 2020! We love spending time on the warm sand, exploring nearby bike trails, and just enjoying the Cape Cod ocean at Race Point. We couldn’t agree more with this special location making the list!
There are so many amazing art galleries in Provincetown – especially on the East End (easily walkable from our properties!). During the summer, they open for a stroll on Fridays which is a great time to check out new works, have a glass of wine, and meet new friends. Here are a couple of our favorites, what are yours?!
The Atlantic House in Provincetown is one of the most historic buildings in town. It has been in continual operation for over two centuries and is a contender for the oldest gay bar in the world! Known by locals as simply “A-house,” it is a great stop for a drink and to see the Provincetown world pass you by.
Our friends at Angel Foods in Provincetown have delicious meals throughout the day you can grab-and-go. They also have a lovely selection of wines, snacks, and more to stock up your hotel room refrigerator!
