Your LOCAL GUIDE will meet you at your hotel. You will travel historic ROUTE 6A, the Old King’s Highway, a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history. It winds past hundreds of historic structures which characterize its early development. View the Eastham Windmill and a Cape Cod Lighthouse. Stop at the CAPE COD NATIONAL SEASHORE VISITOR’S CENTER Sand dunes and the ocean surround you as you approach "Land’s End" - PROVINCETOWN. You are now at the extreme tip of Cape Cod. Formerly known as the "Province Lands" the Pilgrims landed here first before they decided to settle across the Bay in Plymouth. The story started here in 1620 where the Pilgrims spent their first five weeks exploring Cape Cod. It was here that they signed the Mayflower Compact...the catalyst for American democracy.
Lunch is on your own today. Take time to view the Bas Relief Monument and Park commemorating the first landing and the signing of the Compact.

Visit PILGRIM MONUMENT & PROVINCETOWN MUSEUM. This 255-foot tower that dominates the town is the tallest granite structure in the United States. The walk to the top is 116 steps and 60 ramps. Should you choose to climb, you will see many interior stones that were donated by cities, towns and organizations from all over the United States. The Provincetown Museum exhibits highlight the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the town’s rich maritime history and the building of the monument. There is also a re-creation of a 19th century sea captain’s parlor at home and his quarters at sea as well as a diorama of the Mayflower Compact being signed aboard the Mayflower in Provincetown Harbor.

This afternoon you will travel to the "south side" of the Cape to the seaside village of CHATHAM. You will view the CHATHAM LIGHT, which has been a lifesaving beacon for sailors throughout the Cape’s history. Chatham’s location at the Cape’s "elbow" make it very vulnerable to winter storms and your guide will point out the CHATHAM BREAK and the dramatic changes to the shoreline that have occurred, thanks to Mother Nature.
