McMillan Wharf is a great place to stroll and take in the sights and sounds. Fishing vessels and whale watching ships are docked there and the wharf has a variety of small arts and craft shops. The Wydah Museum sits at the end of the dock and is worth a visit. The wharf and museum are a must see.

The views are very picturesque. Best time to capture good photos are about 2 hours before sunset when the lighting conditions are ideal. Sadly, it's also crowded at those hours when the seafarers return back from their ocean activities and for daytrippers to return to Boston. Lots of artists set up shops on the pier to sell their wares. Often,... More

When in P-town a stroll down MacMillan Wharf is a must do. It is a trip to see all of the fishing vessels some more worn than others and yet still full of sea life...Having your morning coffee sitting by the pier is one of our favorite things to do.

I'm an early riser on vacation and ManMillan Wharf is a natural draw for anyone roaming P Town at sunrise. The morning light on the Cape is golden and makes for beautiful vistas around the wharf. Fisherman are busy readying for another day at sea, boats heading out past the breakwater and there was a tall ship docked there the... More

Benches under shade trees along the water; take-out and sit-down restaurants line each side approaching the wharf. Absolutely wonderful in early morning to see the sun rise.

It's a must see being in the heart of downtown, but there isn't a lot too it. It's a typical wharf with lots of boats and a few small shops.

Nothing is more magical than arriving in Ptown on a ferry or boat and walking along this wharf to get to town!

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
