Provincetown Named One of the Friendliest Towns in America
It’s well known for its beaches and it’s nightlife, but now one Cape Cod town has another reason to shine. Provincetown was just ranked one of America’s friendliest cities for 2021.
The honor comes from Expedia traveler reviews. The website compiled reviews from early 2019 to late 2020. It then used Expedia user comments to make a list of “20 of the Top Friendliest Cities in the U.S.”. In the latest ranking, Provincetown took 10th place.
Travelers praised the seaside town’s boutique hotels. Many of its local inns and hotels received high marks from travelers.
In the latest ranking, Provincetown was the only Massachusetts town to make it into the top 20. The resort town of Whitefish, Montana ranked at the very top of the list, followed by the small town of Sister Bay, Wisconsin.
Expedia points out many of the towns and cities on the list this time were beach or other outdoor themed locations. Many, like Provincetown, were also small towns, which makes sense as we navigate another year of the ongoing pandemic.
The website said travel trends for the rest of 2021 are expected to be mostly domestic, with socially distanced locations and beaches likely getting even more interest than in the past. Of course, locals and frequent visitors know why Provincetown is so close to the top of the list.
The oceanside town offers a pet-friendly vibe that helped it snag the most dog-friendly town in America a couple years ago. Popular Commercial Street is a great place for pets and their owners to stroll past galleries and shops, plus sample a bite to eat.
Many of the town’s restaurants offer outdoor patios, plus the town is well known for its welcoming LGBTQ community. For outdoor fun and recreation in Provincetown, you can always hop on the Long Point Lighthouse Trail or head down to nearby Race Point Beach or Herring Cove Beach.
