What Provincetown laacks in the overt cruising you
get in guesthouses in places such as Palm Springs and Key West, it
more than makes up for in charm and the friendliness of the locals.
However, it's not very "Gray" orientated and tends to be more youthful
than places like Ogunquit and Fort Lauderdale - at least in the summer
months, and particularly during hoiday weekends. Most of the mature
generation tend to network rather than go out partying.
6 Masonic Place
247 Commercial Street
508 487- 1430
The locals bar in P'Town as it's open all year and more cruisy and
and raunchy compared to the Porch with a "Leather" bar upstairs (although
most don't wear leather in summer - too hot - apart from a tasteful
armband - sooooo butch!).
The Boatslip Tea Dance
161 Commercial Street
3.30pm-6.30pm (door charge varies $3.50-$8.00)
The place to go to admire the buffed and puffed twinkies plus the
mature men who go to admire them. It's also a good place to mingle
and make new contacts as many of the mature guys don't go anywhere
else. The Hat Sisters are always there in summer and worth waiting
The Porch Bar at the Union (Gifford House)
This is the main place for mature men and admirers in Provincetown.
The upstairs bar and piano bar attract a number of mature men although
it is mixed ages and the downstirs club brings in the bears. The restaurant
"11 Carver Street" is excellent.
9-11 Carver Street
Gray 25%, Admirer 25%, Rent 0%, Music 5, Cruise 5, Elegance 5
An Irish restaurant and pub. Food, piano entertainment, mixed gay/straight
but does attract some of the mature crowd.

Hotels & Guesthouses
With so many guest houses to choose from it's hard to pick out
any specific one. There are places for every budget and standard and
from quiet to the cruisy. However, I would make a special mention
of the exquisite antique ship-themed interiors at the Captain and
His Ship with huge 4-poster beds in every room. Also the Brass Key
if you want a big place with all ameneties. Best to check out one
of the local guides such as http://www.provincetown.com/
or Travel Guides such as http://www.outandabout.com/ (especially
their Master Files which give a "Sexual Temperature" rating ) for
more objective info.
However, I would say that you won't be spending too much time in your
guesthouse during the day.
The beaches are beautiful - even if the grain of the sand kills
your feet. Herring Cove is the local Gay Beach which is str8(ish)
near the car park and then gets progressively Lesbian then Gay as
you walk towards the lighthouse (left when facing the sea). There
is a shortcut to the gay section where you see the parked bikes between
P'Town and the Herring Cove Parking area.You can also get there from
the causeway near the Provincetown Inn which takes you to the nude
The unofficial nude section of the beach is towards
the pont near the lighthouse and marked by a line of rocks in the
sand and a driftwood "sculpture". Cruisy on the back of the dunes
even during the day. All ages, shapes and sizes.
