This monument towers over Provincetown and affords an excellent view of P-Town and the end of the Cape. The climb to the top consists of a combination of 116 steps and a series of ramps spaced throughout the stairs to the top. The stairwell is wide enough for persons going up and down to pass comfortably and is well-lit. In all, it takes about 10 minutes to reach the top. At the top one has views from 3 ports on each side, with both a plexiglass shield from wind and rain and an iron fence to prevent anyone, even little children, from getting close to the edge. My wife does not enjoy heights, but she had no problem enjoying the spectacular views from each side.
The museum adjacent to the tower contains an interesting presentation of the Mayflower Pilgrims' life on the Cape, and exhibits of the history and early life of P-Town. There is a fee to climb the monument which includes admission to the museum. There is a discount for seniors and both the ferries and the chamber of commerce have discount coupons as well.
