The Anne Hutchinson Tour of Provincetown

2 reviews
Get an introduction to Provincetown from America's most infamous colonial woman. Decidedly NOT a Pilgrim, Anne Hutchinson knows her history well enough to have been banished from Massachusetts 400 years ago and will walk you through the center of town to enliven central sites poignant to Ptown's story. Don't expect a long trek (0.5 mi), but do expect the "licentiousness and sinful liberty" that got Anne banished long ago. Some have called it comedy, making the tour for adults only. Receiving the seal of the Spirit from Anne takes roughly an hour. Tour is $15 plus whatever fees are charged by whatever platform you found this... unique... bauble of Cape Cod tourism on.<br><br>Enjoy!
$18.75 per adult

I had biked into town to run some errands and decided it was a perfect day to walk the pier. The views of the harbor, the town and the outer Cape are striking . This time of year the the water in the harbor shimmers and the backdrop of the sapphire blue sky provides an optimal background for the Pilgrim Monument and the buildings in town center. As you head down the pier, the right side is lined with shops full of local art. Further down are the kiosks that serve    as the offices for the whale watch, fishing charters and other attractions. Near the end of the pier is the Whydah Museum which tells a bit of local history and is complete with a gift shop. At the end of the pier are the ferry launches to Boston. This is a nice way to kill time while waiting for a table at the Lobster Pot.

It's very convenient and accessible by car at 10mph. Drive out to the turnaround at the end and you get a good view of town and the bay.

It's impossible to avoid, so walk down the wharf, check out the little stands proffering sails or artwork or kitsch, admire the boats, check out the beach (but not the best place to swim!! Walk down Commercial to other bay beaches). It's a bit like a boardwalk. P-town has so much more to offer, but ya gotta walk down the wharf sooner or later!

P Town was busy this weekend, but a short walk on a long pier got us away from crowds and into cooling breezes. Most of the artisan shops were closed, but the fishing and pleasure boats were in and the tour boats were mostly operating.
