Nobody can say our readers don’t enjoy the beach. Having chosen Fire Island as their favorite weekend getaway, Readers’ Choice voters then picked Provincetown, the Massachusetts beach town at the very end of Cape Cod, as the best vacation destination. That pairing is not surprising since the booming popularity of both locales over the past century was based in good measure on the communities forged there by LGBT people.

Already by the early 20th century, P-town had a vibrant arts scene, with the Provincetown Players luring the likes of Eugene O’Neill to Cape Cod. The bohemian scene always made way for gay and lesbian participation, and by the 1960s and ‘70s Provincetown was a major destination for Boston and New York’s gay communities. The Provincetown Business Guild, which



works to promote gay tourism, has more than 200 members, and the 2010 Census found that that 16 percent of P-town’s households are headed by same-sex couples — more than anywhere else in the nation.

Provincetown plays host to a wide array of LGBT-focused events each year — a June film festival, Mr. Leather New England in November, Women’s Week in October, and Family Week in late July. But special weekend or not, there’s always Tea Dance at the Boatslip and late nights at the A-House. For more information on activities year-round, visit and

    As my parents came to know about my love story, they decided to meet my boyfriend and his family, and soon after that, we decided to get married soon. Since, we were willing to plan honeymoon at the choicest location in Thailand, so we clicked <a href="” target=”_blank”> to find out detailed information about the place, and consulted our friends immediately.
