Nowhere speaks the language of summer quite like Provincetown, the quaint retreat at the tip of Cape Cod that’s famous for its pilgrim past, whale-watching, time-proven art scene and free-spirited gay culture. After a buttery lobster dinner, throw off the flips-flops and refresh your toes in the cool Atlantic sand. Or stroll the dock with your eyes finely tuned to the ocean vistas around you -- you might be so lucky as to see a whale tail flickering in the distance. In fact, you never know what you might see in Provincetown, the summertime escape for artists, lovers and the wild at heart.
