Provincetown Cape Cod with its colorful hustle and bustle, which is shaped by the lifestyle of the artists and the gays in town, exerts a special charm on its visitors. Let yourself drift through Commercial Street, keep an eye out for whales or wander through the dunes, where artists like to withdraw from the hustle and bustle.
Whale species can be seen and experienced on a whale tour along the Whale Route in Massachusetts and whale watching in and around Boston in New England. It is an impressive experience to see the whales exhale their breath as they emerge from the depths of the sea.
