The 5 Best Activities to Do with Your Dog in Ptown
It’s fun to explore Cape Cod, especially when you can take the entire family, including your four-legged companions. With that in mind, we found five of the best activities to do with your dog in P-town.
Pilgrim Bark Park
Right off Route 6, Pilgrim Bark Park is a great place to let your dog run around in Provincetown. At one time, it was ranked one of the nation’s best dog parks. There’s a separate section for small dogs, and you’ll find some water fountains at the park, too.
You can also try taking your dog to the beach. Most local beaches, like Herring Cove, do require that dogs are leashed at all times. That goes for the National Seashore, too. Race Point Beach on the Atlantic Ocean is generally dog-friendly during the off-season, which is mid-September through mid-May.
It probably goes without saying that a great place to head with your pet is Dog Beach. It’s special because it’s the only public beach in all of Cape Cod where dogs can run around off-leash. You’ll find it just off Commercial Street.
Speaking of, it’s easy enough to head over there when everyone has worked up an appetite. There are dozens of dog-friendly restaurants along this stretch of roadway, including some with outdoor patios. Many shops on Commercial Street allow dogs, too. Some of them even put out water bowls.
Out on the water
For a change of scenery, it’s free for dogs to ride on the Long Point Shuttle. There are other opportunities to tour with your pet, too. Some boat rides and charters are dog-friendly in Provincetown, so you can always check before you arrive. It’s a good way to experience the beauty of Cape Cod, without the expectation of leaving your pet behind.
