Year after year Provincetown has been named one of the most pet friendly towns in the U.S.  Dogs love the freedom found on Provincetown’s year round, off-leash beaches and trails. Pets are also welcome to roam the Province Lands Bike Trail Loop, a 5 ¼ mile trek that begins on Race Point Road and winds through the town’s dunes and forest. In addition, more adventurous pets are welcome to join their owners for whale watch tours, sunset cruises, kayaking, parasailing, a sightseeing trolley, sailing charters and walking tours.  If you are traveling to Provincetown with your four legged friends here are some great resources:

The Pilgrim Dog Park – Opened in 2008 by the Provincetown Dog Park Association, Inc.,a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Pilgrim Bark Park is located on an acre of land where dogs can run free and socialize off leash. There is a general dog section and a section exclusively for small dogs under 25 pounds. The park is home to many beautiful sculptures and structures donated by local artists.
