The Mayflower Steps monument commemorates the landing point for pilgrims in the New World. There are a couple of Provincetown hostels from which to choose.

The hostels in Provincetown offer unique, cabin-style dorm rooms and are near the Pilgrim Monument, a tower that provides a great view of the ocean. The nearby shores are lined with lighthouses and there are whale-watching tours that leave from the harbor.

I stayed in Provincetown on very busy long weekend and loved it! The people are friendly in this small town -- it's the perfect place to relax.

Provincetown is a nightmare. Why is it that every hotel/motel/guesthouse/hostel makes you rent for minimum two nights? Want to pass through P-town for a nice overnight trip? Good luck.
