Historic Site
“Provincetown is a fun day trip - whether you walk the streets and enjoy local flavor, or venture out to rocky beaches, or you enjoy local cuisine of Portuguese settlers. Provincetown Monument is a spot to visit during any time of the year - you can climb all the way to the top of this granite tower and enjoy amazing views of the Cape - views could really be amazing on clear days. However, if you venture out there on a drizzly day, the trip is still worth it! You will experience all the museum has to offer about early settlers to the Cape. Be sure to take the stairs to the top of the monument, if you are able, as even on bad weather days views are still amazing! ”

Look for my brother's license plate hanging amongst their collection which covers the ceiling and walls. Surfs Up. I happen to love the Portugues Soup - Kale, potatoes, beans and Chorizo. I mean... All the food is good but that's my go to.”
