Provincetown Travel Guide
Provincetown Local History
Provincetown is a gay/lesbian Mecca, and as such is more than perfect. With the discerning pink patronage it must be outstanding, and indeed it is. Not only are there magnificent sand dunes, with biking trails running along them, there is whale watching, nature trails, angling, water sports, and a multitude of outdoor activities. The resort is also a gay and lesbian entertainment capital, where cabaret acts are as daring and fun as they can possibly get, with female impersonators, lesbian comics, and every kind of twisted sister on parade.
Provincetown Restaurants and Bars
The Red Inn - 15 Commercial St., this restaurant is deservedly one of the most difficult to get reservations for, and is a select meeting place for those who enjoy fine dining and refinement. Ever conscious of the special needs of others, it also provides excellent vegetarian main courses.
Chester - 404 Commercial St., sophistication by candlelight is the trademark ambience of this restaurant, with exceptional service and beautifully presented meals. With views of the ocean and terrace seating, Chester's brings a delicate edge to fine dining.
Martin House - 157 Commercial St., the menu at Martin House offers regional delicacies such as Lobster-stuffed Squash Blossoms, or Grilled Rack of Pork with Mango Salsa and Cactus Pear demiglace on Spicy Masa. Sound good enough to eat! Glen and Gary Martin came up with the menu, and talented Alex Mazzocca puts it all together. To put the cherry on the top, so to speak, there is seating in the rose garden terrace where guests can enjoy their food beside a small fountain.
Mojo's - 5 Ryder St. Ext., for a change from the precious to the down-to-earth, try this fried-seafood shack, where you can grab lightly breaded fried fish and chips, hot-dogs, hamburgers, and such like, to consume at one of the picnic tables on the patio, or take-away. Cool banana's!
