By Andrew Collins. Historic, scenic, and secluded, the former Portuguese fishing community and longtime artists colony of Provincetown is also one of the world's most popular resort destinations among gay and lesbian travelers. The height of the buzz in is the summer, especially July and August, but P'town enjoys a year-round presence and can be quite enchanting during the peaceful, windswept winter months and the mild, relaxed spring and fall shoulder seasons. The town continues to improve and become more well-rounded, with more upscale inns , fine art galleries, and superb restaurants than ever before. Although Provincetown is most popular in summer, and many of its businesses open only from May through October, it's actually an appealing destination year-round, especially during the less-crowded but still mild spring and fall seasons.
Gifford House Inn: Yearly Dates to Remember
We are travelling to Boston in the first week of October doing an overnight stay in NH and also Provincetown as we wanted to see a bit of everything nothing like trying to fit loads into just 7 days! We really wanted to see Race Point Beach and the like and potter around little shops etc? In October Provincetown really slows down. Many of the smaller seasonal restaurants will be closed and others on shortened hours especially during the week. Most shops close about 5 or PM weekdays.
