Great walk!

Cool walk out to the wharf. You get to look at all the sailboats and they have some shops. I would return!

Kids will love looking at the boats. Cute concessions to browse. Picturesque harbor view. Caution - parking can fill up during summer days.

Something you don't see in many vacation spots is a look back at the industry that made this place different and let it grow into what it is today. The building on the end of the wharf is where the daily catch would be brought for processing. On one side and end are displayed extra-large photos of the Portuguese women... More

Lots of cute shops, great atmosphere. The ships were really beautiful and the pirate museum was a fun short visit.

Nice for a short walk or to sit and watch the world go by. It is Providencetown so there are some colorful characters to watch and there are usually kids jumping from the dock into the water, motorcycles, boats, etc. We booked a sail on the Hindu which I am not able to locate on Trip Advisor. This 1.5 hour... More

This is a major town attraction which includes commercial fishing, tour boat cruises, dining places and shopping opportunities. Pleasurable walk out to Cape Cod Bay along the wharf. Good picture opportunities and people watching. Great place to enjoy a brown bag lunch while enjoying the scenery. Locals and tourists enjoy this wharf. After dinner in town, enjoy a pleasure evening... More

See the wharf for many reasons, including that it is great place to cool off on a hot day. Leave the wharf on a whale watch boat to see the best whale sightings in the country!

We walked MacMillan wharf and the pictured wharf to check out all the boats. There are charter fishing boats, whale watch boats, fishing boats, private luxury yachts, fast ferries to Boston and this year the tall ship Kalmar Nyckel. The tall ship was beautiful. You could even take a 3 hour sail. We could see the ship in full sail... More
