Provincetown, Massachusetts

On the fringe of Cape Cod, sits a delightful fishing village that is home to many Eastern Europeans and a thriving LGBT community.
Close to the center of town is a very tall memorial to the original settlers.
Before the Pilgrims on the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock, they spent several weeks here.
From the original landing place, there is a great walk out to Woods End Lighthouse which is one of three here at "Land's End."
The beaches here are beautiful but empty at this time of year.
As well as lots of walking opportunities here there are plenty of bike rental places to take advantage of the many trails.
This is Race Point Beach where lots of swimmers visit during the summer months.
Because of the thousands of shipwrecks along the Cape Cod coastline there were many life saving stations built and there is one here that is being preserved.
