Great to View the Ocean and Relax

Love to stop here while in P-Town. On a nice day, the scenery is beautiful and calming. Love sitting on the dock and watching the boats and people.

We came in on the fast ferry. You get off on the wharf and walk into town. It is beautiful, but I didn't really see anything to do unless you have a boat or are getting on a charter. There are probably some vendors there. There is a public restroom...of that I am sure ;) I would say if you... More

We wondered around looking at the boats - old and new. Dont need to spend much time there, it was a pleasant way to look around. Took a few photos. A few vendors selling locally made items. Looked like good quality stuff. We'd just come off the whale tour, so tired and hungry. Parking is NOT good and not cheap.

This wharf can be a hive of activity during the day mainly because the Boston Ferry and many of the boat tours leave from here. The trolley bus also travels to the end and turns around. There are rest rooms and a pirate museum, popular with kids. It's really pleasant for a stroll and just to watch the activity. It's... More

The pier used to be only a place to catch boats or whale watching ships. Now it is lined with artist shops and it makes the walk interesting even if you are not boarding a boat. Lovely views of the harbor.

If you like to get out of the city and walk a nice pier, this is where you should go in Provincetown. It is quiet and being restaured, but so nice to see the beaches from "the other side".....

Excellent whale watching trips on various size vessels are available. Also fishing charters and sunset cruises. There are several artisan booths on the wharf.

I love to take my coffee and Muffin early in the morning and walk down to the end and sit on the bench. Depending on the time of year the early morning is very peaceful. The view from the bench is of long point and the lighthouse . You can also see the ferry coming and going from Boston. And... More
