We walked to the top of this impressive monument honoring where the Pilgrims landed. Great view over Provincetown. Plan to spend over an hour meandering through an extensive museum. We enjoyed every minute there!

Steady climb to the top. Worth every breath. When you get up to the top and see the magnificent view of Cape Cod Bay and the sand dunes. Will definitely recommend to anyone who visits here.

Visiting Provincetown and you can’t miss visiting the Pilgrim Monument. What a stunning view from the top but the museum is quite impressive. The staff is very friendly and full of knowledge. This is a not to miss attraction.

No place to check in a backpack but as it's a reasonably gentle grade with plenty of waiting places as you go it, provided its not too big it should be no problem.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!
