Travel Tips

Provincetown and Cape Traffic Report

Traffic is a tough after holiday weekends and on Sundays in July and August. Leave in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid back-ups at the bridges. Or better yet, stay an extra night or take the ferry if you can.

Route 6, which runs the length of Cape Cod, tends to be busiest on the weekends, and especially at the start and end of the weekend. If you must travel on these peak days, try to go against the flow by leaving early in the morning or late at night. 


Parking can be tough in Ptown, so it is a good idea to choose lodging where you can park your car.

There are both private and public parking options.

The town’s main parking lot is located on MacMillan Pier off of Commercial Street. For information about current parking rates in the towns’ lots, call the Provincetown Parking Department at 508.487.7050.
