Provincetown Community Links & Resources

Many people think the pilgrims first touched North American soil in Plymouth, but it was actually in Provincetown in 1620! It was here that they penned the Mayflower Compact, a document regarded by many was the forerunner to our constitution. Provincetown or Ptown is by far Cape Cod's most eclectic and colorful town. Settled first by colonial settlers, Provincetown soon beckoned Portuguese fishermen to her shores. A rich fishing heritage gave way to a still-thriving artist colony. And of course, Provincetown is probably best known for its vibrant gay and lesbian culture. Ptown is a can't miss spot for dinner, dancing and seeing the sights!
