A Gay Getaway in Provincetown

About

Amateur writer, pianist, denizen of Houston and part-time GLBT activist

Affectionately referred to as “P-town,” Provincetown is located on the tip of Cape Cod, Mass. Besides its spectacular beaches and artistic vibe, it is also one of the ultimate vacation destinations for the LGBT community.

 

In the late 1800s, Provincetown was populated by many artists and writers. It also became a summer tourist hot spot. Early in the 20th century, an experimental theater called the Provincetown Players formed. It was an arty and intellectual connection to Greenwich Village in NYC.

 

By the 1970s, Provincetown had a thriving gay community. Transsexuals performed in the area as far back as the 1940s, and the Provincetown Business Guild started to promote gay tourism in 1978. The PBG has a membership of over 200 businesses today. It’s easy to see why the LGBT community views Provincetown as one of their favorite summer getaways on the east coast.

 

Just Google “bed and breakfast Provincetown” to find several quaint places to stay. Visit Kayak to view ratings, search parameters and more. Click on the downward pins when a Google map appears, and choose the pin that corresponds to the address of the place where you want to stay. The map zooms in to show you the street view, just like a close-up road map of sorts.

 

Travelocity is a helpful site many travelers turn to for easy answers. Simply click on “hotels,” and then type in your destination. A wealth of resources appears to help you make a decision about where you prefer to stay during your Provincetown escape.

 

Before you perform an online search, review your budget and consider how many days you want to stay. Often search sites want a timeframe because they will present prices based on where and when you stay in Provincetown. This helps you find a good place to stay that won’t break the bank.

 

Consider whether you need to stay near a certain place of interest. Also, think about whether the cost of accommodations and the hassle of parking are worth the location. Find out if there are decent places to eat near your desired destination.

 

There are many cultural places of interest in Provincetown. The Atlantic House is one of the oldest gay bars in the United States. The Art House features a variety of entertainers including Ms. CoCo Peru. The Fantasia Fair in October welcomes transvestites, transsexuals and transgenders from around the country.
