1. Its shops are unique and haven’t crumbled in the wake of corporate America chain stores.
As corporate America continues to strip away uniqueness, many small towns have gone under. Locals and visitors chose to support Provincetown’s individuality by buying local goods and even using cash over credit cards. Here you can still find vintage hat boutiques like Mad As a Hatter, businesses with shirts that read “I love my two moms” and home accent pieces, dog stores selling vegan cookies. There are also shops like Map selling one-of-a-kind clothing and textured belts, Kiss and Makeup’s cosmetics for men and women, and stalls selling quality handmade jewelry.
