Enjoy a video on YouTube.com about Provincetown called “A Walk in Provinetown” produced May 24, 2015
Henry David Thoreau described Cape Cod as “the bared and bended arm of Massachusetts.” If you go to the very, end of that arm, you’ll arrive at Provincetown.
“P-town,” as it’s known, is one of America’s oldest arts colonies — a longtime sanctuary for novelists, playwrights, painters and Pilgrims. In 1620, the Pilgrims landed first in Provincetown before heading on to Plymouth, and Provincetown has the monument to prove it.
