Ever have one of those experiences from your childhood that you like to revisit again and again? This is one of those for me. Walking this jetty at any time of the year can offer a unique view back to town and recharge your batteries. It will prove to you that there is so much more to Provincetown than walking... More

Everyone sees the warning about not swimming near seals due to the Great White sharks, but there's nothing warning you hat he incoming tide overflows the causeway in two spots both two thirds of the way out. However as long as you bear this in mind it's a must do! Beaches out there are fantastic & seals fun to watch.

Fascinating walk, but definitely a long one (an hour if you dawdle), and you need good shoes to traverse the uneven causeway. Delightful to watch the seagulls catch and break clam shells on the causeway. At the far end, its still quite a walk to the lighthouses. Delightful views back to P'Town.

I slipped and fell on the breakaway but the rocks were large enough that fortunately I didnt slip in the water! This is a must-do activity if you go to PTown--the causeway stretches so far out and the scenes are breathtaking.

Well worth a visit as the traffic island is the Pilgrims Arrival Point. Views to the north are good indicating the prospect off the tour round the dunes and coast..

this is really over a mile, so a problem for small children or small dogs. The rock steps could be fairly large at times; too much for short legs. Lots of broken shells on the rocks, so barefoot would also not work.

Cape Cod Mass. is in itself a wondrous place but Provincetown is special to the world. No matter your color or gender, all feel the delight of the unharnessed beauty of nature, man and beast. Bring you dog on the trolley, or cat! Bring yourself, free your heart, accept all the rainbow colors love comes in.

Pro (aka Beauty): the view is spectacular! Con (aka Beast): not for the faint of heart or the physically meager. If you aren't paying attention you will fall and injure yourself. The wind is much stronger at this end of the cape even on a relatively calm day like mine. Summary: if you want this beauty you need to take... More

The causeway is often referred to as the breakwater. It is a little over a mile long and consists of very large rocks with somewhat flat top surfaces, but it is not a smooth continuous surface. There are many gaps between the rocks and don't think of it as a level path. It isn't for those who have mobility issues.... More
