Provincetown The Essential
Extending to the top of Cape Cod, Provincetown, or "P-town," as it is known locally, combines elements of a fishing village, artists' colony and resort. During the summer the town bustles with visitors, many of them gay and lesbian, who weave in and out of the shops, galleries and eating places that line the narrow streets, especially along Commercial Street, the main thoroughfare. The beaches of nearby Cape Cod National Seashore provide a welcome respite from the crowds.
