Provincetown Gay Neighborhoods
Provincetown, Massachusetts, is a small resort town that is fairly small - it has a population of less than 3,000 during some months. During the summer, however, many people visit this small village, increasing its population to more than 60,000!
It’s a very popular destination for the LGBT community, but a number of gays and lesbians also live in the town.
Because it’s so small (the town is 17.5 square miles total, almost half of which is water), Provincetown doesn’t really have that many different neighborhoods or districts. The entire town is very LGBT-friendly! During the 1970s, in fact, much of the town’s population was gay.
The 2010 Census shows that Provincetown has the highest number of same-sex couples in the U.S.
Because of its prime location on the tip of Cape Cod, homes in Provincetown aren’t always cheap. Condos start at $130,000 but can be as much as $1.5 million or more. Single family homes range from $365,000 to $6.75 million.
