Planning an Autumn Trip to P-Town
Although summer is the most popular time for people to visit Provincetown, autumn is actually the perfect time to tour the coastal village. There is still bright sunshine and warm days and plenty to explore in P-town for fall visitors. The P-town ferry from Plymouth still gets you to the dock in half the time it would take to drive, so you get more time to enjoy everything P-town has to offer. These tips will help you plan your autumn journey.
Dress in Layers
The weather is highly changeable during the autumn, with chilly mornings and evenings and warm, sunny days. To be ready for the fluctuating temperatures, dress in layers. You may need a jacket or sweater for your ferry trip and the start and end of your day that you can remove so you can walk around in a light shirt or short sleeves. Layers will let you stay comfortable no matter what the weather decides to do.
Rent a Bike
P-town is very walkable, and there are cabs and shuttles available, but the best way to see the town at any time of year is to rent a bike. With a bike, you will be able to cover a lot of ground without waiting for public transportation, and you’ll get to explore at your own pace. There are multiple places around town that rent bikes, so it’s easy to pick one up and go.
Hit the Beach
Although you will want to save time for the art walk and to explore the local bookshops with on-season hot cider, don’t forget to visit the beach. It likely won’t be warm enough to swim, but fall is the perfect time for a brisk stroll by the water with beautiful views.
