IT’S RAINING! OH NO! CAN’T GO TO THE BEACH!
Don’t worry! There is still so much to do and things that you would miss if the sun was out!
Provincetown is chocker block full of world class, unique and just plain fun SHOPS and wonderful GALLERIES, so why not start with a stroll down Commercial Street… it can take hours and make you very hungry! There are dozens of restaurants and eateries where you can find fried dough, hot dogs, pizza to kale soup, clambakes and sushi and everything in between!
If you have a great place to stay, this may be your chance to buy a good book, bottle of wine, cheese & crackers, lay back and relax for awhile.
For you active folks, consider climbing the Monument and then visiting its museum. And if you don’t get tired climb it again!
Speaking of museums, we have some great places to visit such as the Provincetown Art Association & Museum, the Pirate Ship Whydah Museum and even our local Library which is a lot more than a library (huge fishing boat fills the middle of two floors) with free internet service, children’s floor and ongoing programs.
Whales are wet…
Despite the rain, our WHALES don’t care as they are wet all the time! Whale watching is still a great thing to do on a rainy day. It takes about 3 hours, there’s food and drink on board and inside seating!
If it’s not raining too hard you can go on a one hour DUNE TOUR or Provincetown sightseeing TROLLEY TOURS all around town. Check this page for businesses listing.
Pamper yourself at our salons and spas with a message, facial, new do, nails & toes, waxing, spray tan or even a henna tattoo to look your best at the beach when the sun does come out!
