In 1958, Ryan Family Amusements founder James A. Ryan opened a simple, eight-lane bowling alley, planting the foundation for a slew of entertainment centers throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. At 10 locations, visitors enjoy a variety of arcade and skill games in addition to traditional candlepin, tenpin, or duckpin bowling. Every Friday and Saturday evening from 9 p.m. until midnight, bowling lanes take on an incandescent glow, allowing bowlers to experience futuristic entertainment without the inconvenience of rising jetpack-fuel prices. Bumper bowling is available for younger players, and an onsite concession stand refreshes responsible adults with glasses of beer and wine (though not available at Cape Cod Mall, Newport, or Oak Bluffs locations).

Before the invention of modern nautical technology, sudden storms, dense fog, and strong currents provided a challenge for even the most seasoned sailors. These treacherous conditions proved insurmountable for many navigating the waters surrounding Nantucket, dashing vessels against the shoals and sinking more than 700 ships over the centuries. So many wrecks began to fill the floor of the waters around Nantucket Island that the area was referred to as "a graveyard of the Atlantic."

The Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum honors the bravery of the local islanders?often members of organizations such as the Massachusetts Humane Society, United States Life-Saving Service, and the United States Coast Guard?who placed their own lives in danger by attempting to rescue the crews stranded aboard sinking ships. The museum's permanent collection, which consists of more than 5,000 pieces, gives guests an opportunity to learn more about these individuals' heroic efforts.

In addition to vintage photographs and exhibits recounting famous shipwrecks and the ensuing rescue attempts, the museum also features period artifacts that helped save lives. Additionally, the museum is a great place to take a bike ride or picnic on the beautiful grounds with views of the water.

In November of 1620, a modest sailing ship touched the shores of what would become Provincetown, bearing a group of Pilgrims who would create and sign the Mayflower Compact. Both the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum were built to commemorate that historic event and preserve Provincetown history for future generations.

  • Eye Catcher: The Pilgrim Monument was dedicated in 1910 to the Mayflower Pilgrims. Standing 252 feet tall, it's the tallest US structure made of granite. Visitors can venture up the 116 steps and 60 ramps to the top, a full 350 feet above sea level.

  • Permanent Mainstay: Many of the exhibits celebrate the area's maritime history, such as the recreation of a 19th-century sea captain's quarters at sea. Others celebrate the area's culture, including the Art Colony, American Theatre, Admiral MacMillan?s voyages, and much more

  • Don't Miss: FORGOTTEN PORT: Provincetown?s Whaling Heritage, a special exhibit through November 30

  • Past Exhibits: The Playwright of Peaked Hill Bars told the tale of how Eugene O'Neill's early life in Provincetown impacted his creative voice.

  • Special Programs: In the summertime, the museum sponsors weekly historical walking tours of the surrounding area. At the end of November, in a century-old tradition, they light up the during a lighting ceremony that celebrates the Pilgrims' 1620 landing.

The Cape Cod Museum of Art celebrates the work of artists from Cape Cod, southeastern Massachusetts, Nantucket, and Martha's Vineyard, many of whom achieved lasting influence around the globe. Highlights from the museum's seven galleries include plein-air paintings by John Joseph Enneking and Joseph Eliot Enneking ? famed American Impressionists ? and an original piece by Hans Hofmann, the Provincetown artist some call the father of Abstract Expressionism.?

Of course, not all kinds of art hang neatly on walls; the museum also features an extensive outdoor sculpture garden, a screening room showing independent films, and ceilings primed and ready for whenever someone invents floating antigravity canvases. The museum's staff always looks for new and varied kinds of work to add to their collection, even from amongst visitors: they use their space to run year-round art classes for adults and children, cultivating the very local talent that their galleries celebrate.
