The app’s general and operational park information includes detailed descriptions of hiking trails, bicycling, lighthouses, unique points of interest, museums, parking, restrooms, picnicking, and swimming areas.

The Chimani’s Cape Cod app also allows users to create a “Favorites” list, conduct global search, turn map annotations on and off and download new content. The app’s over 100 remarkable photos were taken by professional photographer David Patterson.

Pilgrim Monument Marking Milestone

August 2nd, 2010 by gary palochko


PROVINCETOWN MASSACHUSETTS  – The Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown will turn 100 on August 5th, 2010. The statuesque, 252-foot granite Pilgrim Monument was completed in 1910 to commemorate the Pilgrims’ first landing in America Nov. 21, 1620, in Provincetown. The Pilgrims also signed the Mayflower Compact, an early declaration of self-governance, in Provincetown harbor.

Back 100 years ago, the monument’s dedication on August 5th 1910, was a national revelation. Three years earlier President Theodore Roosevelt had arrived to help lay down the first cornerstone and kick off the construction. Then with the monument’s completion in 1910, bleachers were built around the base to seat 3,000 people. A U.S. Navy fleet sailed into the harbor. President William H. Taft arrived on the presidential yacht Mayflower and anchored roughly where the original Mayflower was thought to have anchored. Taft addressed the crowd after an introduction by Governor Eben Draper.  At the end of the ceremony, a young Mayflower descendant unveiled a commemorative plaque on the monument. Afterward, the partying went late into the night with a dinner for 500 people and a ball at town hall. Lots of people — including Governor Deval Patrick will be here for the celebration but not President Obama even though he was invited.

Humpback Whales Spotted Off The Coast of Cape Cod

Dozens of Humpback Whales Were Spotted off the coast of Cape Cod

Dozens of humpback whales have been spotted off the coast of Provincetown Cape Cod Massachusetts. Restrictions have been put into place to make sure the whales are protected.  “The biggest threat” in the past had been shop strikes, but a year ago the federal government passed a regulation to slow ship speeds up and down the eastern seaboard while these whales moved into the Cape Cod Coast.

Scientists said they are encouraged about the future of the whales, who have experienced a bit of a baby boom in recent years.  The hope is that the more people see these beautiful creatures, the better the commitment to help them thrive. You can go on a whale watch excursion from MacMillian Wharf in Provincetown, Massachusetts.  There is Dolphin Fleet or the Portuguese Princess Excursions.

So come to Provincetown for a few days not only to go whale watching but to enjoy some of the most beautiful beachs on the east coast.  You can  stay at one of the most distinctive and historic inns in Provincetown has to offer, The Revere Guest House. It will become one of your favorite Ptown accommodation.
