Birthplace of American Liberty

A small resort town with a year-round population of just 3,000, Provincetown draws nearly 60,000 annual visitors with its scenic beaches, art colonies, galleries, theaters, and shops.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Thu): tour the pleasant surroundings at Cape Cod National Seashore. Keep things going the next day: get a sense of history and politics at Provincetown Town Hall, enjoy the sand and surf at Race Point Beach, then pause for some photo ops at Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, then see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and finally take a leisurely stroll along MacMillan Wharf.

For where to stay, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Provincetown planner.

Philadelphia to Provincetown is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and ferry. While traveling from Philadelphia, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Provincetown, ranging from highs of 63°F to lows of 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Hyannis.

Capital of Cape Cod

"The Capital of the Cape," Hyannis serves as Cape Cod's main transportation and commercial hub.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hyannis: Falmouth (Coonamessett Farm, Shining Sea Bikeway, &more) and Nobska Point Lighthouse (in Woods Hole). There's still lots to do: get curious at Sandwich Glass Museum, take a tour by water with Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises, contemplate the long history of Captain Bangs Hallet House Museum, and examine the collection at Heritage Museums & Gardens.

For traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Hyannis trip planner.

You can drive from Provincetown to Hyannis in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 64°F in October, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
