Recommend the pilgrim monument and museum to anyone staying in Provincetown. Despite the height, it was an easy climb to the top of the tower as the steps inside are interspersed with sloped ramps. Well worth the climb for the great views across the town...More

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
