  • Water fun

The most popular beach in Provincetown is Herring Cove, and it has a little something for everyone. Close to the parking lot is the unofficial family section, and as you keep walking south - towards the left - you'll pass through the lesbian section, gay male section and nude section, in that order. The Travel Channel has named this one of America's Best All-Time Beaches, so it does tend to get pretty crowded, but there's a full infrastructure with a snack bar, large bathrooms, changing rooms, showers and lifeguards.

Neither a meat-market pick-up spot nor a locals-only dive, The Monkey Bar keeps things simple: it's just a nice place to hang with your friends and throw back a few cold ones. The music is loud, the...
