Provincetown, MA – Fences

Provincetown is located at the tip of Cape Cod. The town’s total area is 17.5 square miles (45 km2), 9.7 square miles (25 km2) of it being land and 7.8 square miles (20 km2) of it water. The town is bordered by the town of Truro to the east, Provincetown Harbor to the southeast, Cape Cod Bay to the south and west, and Massachusetts Bay to the north. The town is 45 miles (72 km) north (by road) from Barnstable, 62 miles (100 km) by road to the Sagamore Bridge, and 115 miles (185 km) from Boston via roadway.

Nearly two-thirds of the town’s land area is covered by the Cape Cod National Seashore. To the north lie the “Province Lands,” the area of dunes and small ponds extending from Mount Ararat in the east to Race Point in the west, along the Massachusetts Bay shore. The Cape Cod Bay shoreline extends from Race Point to the far west to the Wood End in the south, eastward to Long Point, which points inward towards the Cape, and providing a natural barrier for Provincetown Harbor. All three points are marked by lighthouses. The town’s population center extends along the harbor, south of the Seashore’s lands.
