Hello, my name is Cynthia, a mermaid from the waters of Long Island Sound, near Connecticut. Thank you for visiting my current article on coastal New England. A new article will be posted every other Monday. I hope you will be able to visit me on a regular basis.
If you missed either of my first two articles, you can find links to them here.
Let's begin our visit with my favorite attraction, the beach. Take Race Point Road north from US highway 6 to Race Point Beach, part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Almost two-thirds of the town's land area is part of the National Seashore.
Commercial Street runs parallel to the harbor shoreline in the southwest part of town. Here, you will find a number of shopping opportunities including antiques, art, handcrafted jewelry and clothing, home decor, and marine surplus. After shopping, dine at one of many local restaurants on seafood or other delicacies. Many restaurants offer patio seating, allowing you to practice people watching. The Farmerís market opens every Friday (seasonal), with fresh local produce and fish.
Returning to the water, why not rent a boat and explore the harbor? When doing so, remember these eight boating safety rules:
Provincetown, also known as P-Town, has a number of events and things to do on the off-season as well. Fine arts and theater is just the beginning. The Provincetown Art Association and Museum on Commercial Street is a good place to start.

If you should see me out in the water, be sure to wave.
Thank you for publishing this information about some of the coastal areas of New England. When I was young we visited New England, and these articles take me back to some wonderful memories. New England is certainly a very beautiful area and there are a lot of beaches and coastal areas to enjoy. I look forward to more articles. I will visit New England again in the near future, and will be looking up some of these places. Thanks, again. Keep up the good work.
While we're visiting Massachusetts, I would like to congratulate the Boston Red Sox on winning the 2007 World Series!
