This past weekend it cost me $25+ to park for 1/2 of the day on Sunday and then it dropped to $8 flat rate on Monday (the Holiday). They seem to rake over the tourists on the weekends. The Dolphin Fleet for Whale watching was amazing.

I think a quick stop is just fine but all in all not much to see. There are a few small shops and this is where all of the ferry's come in.

We visited Provincetown on a day trip by ferry from Boston and so glad we did. The weather was kind and we have a wonderful day, browsing the quaint shops, walking along the sea front and enjoying the wonderful harbour and sea views.

We ended up parking on the wharf as we raced to our dinner reservation. After dinner we took a leisurely stroll on the wharf and enjoying the views of the city, especially the illuminated Pilgrims Monument.

the wharf is easy to get to and walk on when in Provincetown. you can go on a sailing charter, whale watching or people watching. I saw lots of kids and dogs too.

We walked the wharf, stopped at small shops situated on the wharf, and got our Whale Watch tickets there. It has benches to sit on. A great walk, lots of great sea air.

Fun to stroll down the pier and see the water and boats. Shopping was also available with some unique items, some tourist type wares.

This is where it's all happening. MacMillan Wharf is at heart of Provincetown and is the place where many or most of the commercial fishing and water sight seeing tours are located. The fast (and slow) ferries also depart from here. There are small artsy businesses located in many of the small shacks along the boardwalk. Great for people-watching, but... More

I fished or rather squided on the wharf last Saturday night and caught enough squid for a great dinner with Italian Squid ink pasta. If you want to fish for squid go at night under the lights behind the harbor master house and use a squid jig that can be purchased at the town hardware store on commercial street
