TRAVEL TO PROVINCETOWN
Ptown is readily accessible by land, air and sea.
Our preferred method. Nothing beats the sight of Provincetown Docks rising into view from the front of the boat. Boston Harbor Cruises will ferry from Boston Harbor to Provincetown in 90 minutes. The Silver Line is a free shuttle bus from Logan Airport to the ferry dock. Get off at the World Trade Center Stop.
Just over 2 hours from Boston by car without traffic.
Cape Air offers a quick 20 minute flight from Boston to Provincetown Municipal Airport.
Truro Vineyards is located just 7 miles outside of P-town. Bus service will be available to and from the reception. Buses will leave from the Pilgrim Monument immediately following the ceremony and return to Ptown every 30 min starting at 9:30pm. For those that prefer driving, parking is available at the vineyard.
Provincetown is truly a town for locals. To get the full experience we recommend that guests check out the wonderful B&Bs found in Provincetown on:
If you are planning on a longer stay or need a little more space we highly recommend looking into a house rental. Since this is the busy season most house rentals require a week commitment. It should be noted that the vast majority of house rentals in Provincetown require a Saturday check in and a Saturday check out. If you are interested in renting a house start the search ASAP. Many are reserved 5 to 6 months in advance and your chances of getting the rental extended through Sunday are much better if you reach out early. The best options for researching house rentals are:
For those that wish for a more traditional hotel experience there are several hotels that we recommend. Unfortunately we are unable to reserve blocks of rooms at this time of year due to the busyness of the season. If you plan on booking a hotel before January 1st 2017 we recommend you call rather than booking through their websites. Many do not release official 2017 summer rates until the new year. As a result, if you use the web to book it may show the hotel as full even though there is plenty of availability.
The above recommendations are located inside the heart of Provincetown. There are some hotels with greater availability and more affordable rates just on the outskirts of town including:
Unless you are arriving by car you will likely not need one while you are in town. Parking is extremely limited and the town is very manageable by foot. Most people get around by walking. Bikes are available for rent by the hour or day at several locations in town. We recommend:
Taxis are available at any time day or night. They are very friendly and reliable but are the only game in town (no Ubers in PTown) so costs tend to add up quick. Note, taxis charge by the traveler in Provincetown – make sure you ask your driver for an estimate of charges so you aren’t surprised! We once paid $60 to for 6 people to travel 7 blocks to avoid the rain… better to invest in an umbrella.
