Pilgrim Monument

Standing high above the rest, Pilgrim Monument actually now sits where Town Hall once stood in P-town. Dedicated by President Taft in the early 1900s, the more than 252-foot tower is the nation’s tallest granite structure. It

Birding on Cape Cod does not have to be left to the busy tourist season. Void of the big crowds, winter can be a great time to do just that.

There’s very little traffic during the winter months. While you won’t find yourself fighting the crowds, you will likely spot some birdlife you may not necessarily see in other places.

Provincetown, in particular, has several good birding locations during the winter months. If you have the time, consider heading to Herring Cove, Beech Forest or Race Point.

If time is a consideration, try one of the easier spots to get to like Provincetown Harbor. You can drive onto MacMillan Wharf and even stay in your car if you want. It’s a good place to spot gulls, seabirds, loons and ducks.

The iconic Pilgrim Monument has been a part of Provincetown for about a century, but this historic landmark actually reflects a part of history that dates back nearly 400 years. The monument first began going up around the turn-of-the-century, but it was built to commemorate an important event several centuries before that.

The Cape Cod Pilgrim Memorial Association built the monument in honor of the Mayflower Pilgrims’ first landing in Provincetown in 1620. It’s said the pilgrims spent about five weeks exploring the region before moving on to Plymouth.

Not only is the historic landmark an important Provincetown tourist attraction today, but it’s also important for understanding American history. Before leaving for Plymouth, the Pilgrims wrote
