A wee walk to get to the top but was glad it was mostly ramps and not stairs all the way. The views from the top made the climb worth while. You could see right round the tip of the Cape which was so lovely

This is a great afternoon experience for only $12.00 per person. The view from the top of the Monument and the museum are both fabulous. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in visiting Provincetown.

This is a fun activity and a good workout! Very interesting to learn the history of the Pilgrims. Clear, sunny day offered great views in all directions. The museum was also worthwhile. Second visit. Would recommend.

The view of the city is extraordinary here. Great place to park while visiting the monument and go shopping or have some delicious food nearby. Great value for this resort town. It is a healthy walk up the top. Don't miss out on this treasure.

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

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

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
