You may have been to P-town before or at least read something about the magical gay vacation destination on Cape Cod. It is a sunny paradise throughout the summer filled with pool parties, speedos, and walks along the beach. BUT, Mother Nature sometimes is in a bad mood and may occasionally sprinkle the gays with a little rain. Have no fear! There are still tons of fun things to do in Provincetown when this happens. Here are 5 ideas for you:
1. See A Show
One of the best things about Provincetown is the theatre scene. (Which is a big part of the history of the town you can read about here.) There are new shows coming in every week at places like The Crown & Anchor, Post Office, and Provincetown Theater. Plus, there are summer long acts that have been a part of the P-town tradition for years. If you have never seen Miss Richfield 1981, you are missing out, as she has come from her trailer in Minnesota (where butter is a spice and gravy is a beverage) for over a dozen years.
2. Climb the Pilgrim's Monument
Put your cocktail down and take a little history break to learn about why that tall building stands in the middle of town. That monument commemorates the Mayflower Pilgrim's first landing in the new world in 1620 before sailing onto Plymouth. You can climb up the 252 foot monument in about ten minutes and be rewarded with a fantastic view of the city.
