Readers of Travel + Leisure Magazine have voted Provincetown as America’s Top Beach Town.
In this year’s America’s Favorite Places Survey, readers named the town, stating that “a winning trifecta of gorgeous natural scenery, charming architecture and an everyone-is-welcome cultural scene, earned Provincetown top honors.
“Considering everything else we have, our art colony and all of our wonderful unique shops and eateries and art galleries, we just feel it’s a great reason for people to come here for a vacation or at least visit for a day,” said Provincetown Tourism Director Tony Fuccillo.
The magazine previously named Provincetown as one of America’s Quirkiest Towns and one of America’s Most Romantic Destinations.
“We think it’s a great award to receive from a magazine like Travel and Leisure, which is so important in our country,” said Fuccillo.
Provincetown has received a number of accolades this summer, including being named by Trivago as the “Number One Place to Stay in the U.S. in 2016” and one of the “10 Best Small Towns in America” by Smithsonian Magazine.
