Provincetown Profile


Overview

Provincetown is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 2,968 people and just one neighborhood, Provincetown is the 278th largest community in Massachusetts. Provincetown has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Provincetown home prices are not only among the most expensive in Massachusetts, but Provincetown real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Provincetown is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.28% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Provincetown is a town of sales and office workers, managers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Provincetown who work in sales jobs (17.39%), management occupations (16.61%), and office and administrative support (13.60%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Provincetown is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Provincetown has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Provincetown has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Provincetown than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Provincetown may be for you.

One of the nice things about Provincetown is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Provincetown spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 17.83 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Provincetown is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
