||West End, Provincetown
The homes in the West End of Provincetown are full of colorful history. Many of the houses were floated over from Long Point (the tip of Cape Cod) and rebuilt along the picturesque sandy waterfront.
The tides in the harbor often exceed ten feet, and low tide leaves the moored sailboats stranded along the miles of flats. Quaint piers piled with a jumble of tiny shingled cottages such as Captain Jack's Wharf are either lapped by waves or high and dry .
