We took a trip to Provincetown, Mass last week with our friends to camp and enjoy the town. We stopped in Boston on the way for a brief detour.
First stop was the Arnold Arboretum at Harvard University to climb some trees.
Next up, we did the Sam Adams brewery tour.
Next we headed into Provincetown. We set up camp at Dune’s Edge campground, which was a nice campground and about 5 minutes from the main town. However, we did not know until we got there that they do not allow any campfires. [Partly our fault because I think it was listed on the website] You can get a permit- but you have to get that 3 days in advance. You can also get a permit for a beach campfire, but that has to be 3 days in advance too. What is camping without a campfire, am I right?!
I found a campground about 25 minutes out of Provincetown that seemed to allow fires. If I were to go camping near P Town again, I would probably choose that option. But I guess it depends on how near the action you want to be and how much you care about camping with a campfire! To me, it’s essential. And so are smores.
After setting up camp we headed into town to check it out…
An amazing thing about this little town is that it has been declared the gayest city in the U.S.
And you see this pride all over as you walk around : )
Another amazing thing about this town is that if you head to the edge of it, only a few feet away, you find the beach.
Another reason to love P Town: people here really love their pooches.
These little babies can be seem doing everything from swimming and catching fish at the beach, to shopping with their owner, to having a casual drink at the bar.
The bar scene in P Town was great. We visited a bar overlooking the water with an eclectic industrial beachy style inside.
There is so much shopping to be done in this town- I got this amazing shirt, I wish I had remembered from what store. But there are many small local artist shops selling their own Provincetown designs. I am an ice cream fanatic, so it’s pretty perfect for me.
Our first breakfast stop was at Devon’s. These are not the best pictures, but I loved the indoor decor with the glam style.
Riding the beach dunes:
On our last day- we brought the Jeep and got a permit to ride on the beach dunes.
What do you think of Provincetown? Have you ever been- if so, share your story with me!
