Tips for Families

It is easy for the kids to get overwhelmed and you will end up buying more than you need. It is displayed in bins that are easy for little hands to reach. Try setting a limit - i.e. "pick 10 pieces of salt water taffy for your bag".

Half Day trip to Provincetown

Flag review

Tips for Families

There is a parking lot on the main street, approximately halfway down on the left side. There are public restrooms, well marked with signage along the street, but there is also a public restroom in the library which is kind of cool because there is a HUGE boat right in the middle of the main room!

Whales Galore -

Flag review

Tips for Families

Take dramamine for sea sickness before getting on the boat. Stick with carbs for snacks - bring sunscreen. Although there are plenty of indoor seats with windows, you want to be outside looking at the whales all around you. They are so close- it's beautiful! Even restless children are captivated to see something so massive and alive right next to your boat!

OK, if you take the scenic route, you shave a chunk off your life to get here. It's allllllll the way at the tip of the cape. If you're not into trading this chunk of life for consummate Cape Cod scenery, take the main highway...you'll get there in about half the time. I was questioning my decision to listen to our innkeeper who said not to miss this place... ...until we pulled into town. Being summer, we pulled in with hordes of other people. But, I didn't care. This was the cutest little beach community...with its own unique personality. A cute harbor, sand dunes, tons of touristy and chic boutiques, and a flamboyant Pride vibe. Loved it!!! We didn't want to miss anything, so we opted for the trolley tour....

It is an interesting town to visit but not to stay if you are on a family vacation.   Definitely take 1/2 - 1 day walking around the piers and the Commerce Street when you are in Cape Cod. btw...  th...

Most amazing experience! Numerous breaching hump back whales surrounding the boat. ( Wish the naturalist knew more and could answer questions, mostly replied "I don't know". (Hey, at least he's honest!:) TRAFFIC: Got stuck in 3 hours of traffic! (Normally should have been 40 minutes...

Overall, a great beach and park experience.  Beach itself is beautiful.  Great views, large dunes, serene setting.  Beach was busy, but no problem to find a place to spread out.  An extended walk from lot to beach, but bearable.  Only down sides were the coldish water and views were slightly obstructed by RVs parked on dis...

Boat Tours -- Dolphin Fleet of Provincetown

307 Commercial St, Provincetown, Massachusetts

Our family of 4 just took this tour yesterday. The Dolphin Fleet tour was recommended by a local. I do think they may be a little pricier than others (we paid 39.00 each with AAA discount and we saw signs for 34.00-36.00 on the docks for other tours). However, this is a responsible tour company with respect to the sea life. They love their whales and have a conservationist on board who knows EVERYTHING there is to know about whales and sea life in general. They also support whale research. We were on their newest boat and it was spotless and our cruise was very smooth. Crew was friendly and let the patrons get up and move around once we were out of the harbor. If you get on early (line up in front of the boa...

I have been going on Dolphin Fleet whale watches *gulp* for over 30 years.  We went on them when I was a kid, and now I take my kids on one every summer when we go to the Cape.  I have only ever been on one trip, during that whole period when we didn't see any whales.  The tours would have to be pretty damn special for me to keep shelling out money for this many years in a row. This year, we were treated to a brand new boat.  Although the boats have always been clean, and freshly painted, this year was outstanding.  There is plenty of space both inside the boat and out for everyone to see when the whales are close, and to be inside on the rides to and from the dock. This year we saw about 8 whales on our exc...
