Winter in Provincetown, Massachusetts
Ned Stark was right, winter is coming. However, that doesn’t mean we have to dread the long nights and chilly days.
Winter is a beautiful time of year, especially when it is winter in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The sandy beaches become covered in a layer of crisp, clean snow, and the piers become quiet and peaceful. During the winter months, Cape Cod is reminiscent of so many quaint towns in Christmas movies, picturesque, quiet and a feeling of stepping back in time.
During this time of year, the tourists have mostly gone to warmer areas, but there’s still plenty to do and see. Shops and restaurants are still open, and the local galleries and library offer plenty of indoor activities.
Whatever you decide to do, let the Provincetown Hotel be your cozy home away from home during your stay.
Yes, Stores Are Still Open During Winter
Usually, winter means shops close up and wait out the winter, but not in Provincetown! Knitting shops, the “army-navy” surplus store “Marine Specialties” with a treasure trove of unique finds, and the Atlantic Spice store are just a few you will still find open. The library holds free movie nights and on-going weekly events. The Governor Bradford has karaoke. Spend time at a movie at the Waters Edge Cinema, or visit the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. Enough restaurants are still open to please even the pickiest eater. In addition, Napi’s and The Squealing Pig restaurants both have trivia nights as well!
Take in the Outdoors
Don’t let winter on Cape Cod fool you, outdoor activities haven’t stopped! If you thought the beaches and wooded trails were beautiful in summer, just wait until you see them in winter. They’re downright STUNNING. Bring your four-legged friend and stay in one of our pet-friendly rooms, and breathe in the brisk New England winter air as you silently wind your way through the frost-covered trees.
Once the sun begins to set, make your way back to the restaurants in town or to your room at the Provincetown Hotel and snuggle up by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate or cider to warm up.
