Park your car in the middle of town. Or just walk out and sit on the benches. Catch the breeze. Watch the boats and seagulls.

We had a great walk on the pier, people watching, and visiting a number of small shops. The height of the afternoon was when a merchant ship from the 1800's came in and we watched it dock. We visited the pirate's museum. It was great family time

The Provincetown whale watching tour was outstanding. The tour is narrated by biologist which is excellent.

A beautiful place to walk around. There are little shacks with artists in them all along the pier. There are boats of every type from whale watching boats to tall ships to yachts. It is very cool to look at. The pier is lined with flags that are whipping in the wind. The place seems very dog friendly. This town... More

Macmillan Wharf is the heart blood of Ptown. The ferries,whale watching, chater boats, and pleasure boats are all there. There are benches at the end of the wharf so that you can watch the boats come in and out. Since I am from Georgia, this entire atmosphere was fascinating. If you have questions, then the Harbormasters are very helpful.

We always stay at the Provincetown Marina either on a slip of a mooring. Desiree the owner always treats us like family and is very accommodating to us. We always travel with our friends and she goes out of her way to put us close by. The restrooms are showers are immaculate late at night or early in the morning.... More

There's not a whole lot that you can't find for the average tourist on MacMillan Wharf. It's a great place to go and make your plans for the day. That's where you catch whale watches, see artist in action, look for sharks, go the the pirate museum or take a boat ride. It's a great spot and it's the best... More

A 5 minute stroll turns into a 20 minute attraction. Fishing boats, cruise boats, ferries from Boston and beautiful scenery provide unexpected entertainment and relaxation!
