Fun for the family

Driving out to Provincetown can be pretty boring, especially for the kids, but this tour is a great way to keep them (and the adults) entertained. Lots of interesting historical information alongside some recommended stops along the way. We didn’t have time for most of those detours since we were going straight to Provincetown but I plan to do them next time. The tour begins at a random rest stop, which I found strange, but it is conveniently located on Rt 6 and has a bathroom. The information center at the rest stop was closed due to covid but from that point on, the stories began to play automatically as we drove. There was one time the audio stories got cut off but overall it worked well.

Careful Reviewer ,

Very informative!

We started the App as we were leaving the visitor center and used it as our in person guide. Besides not missing the must see spots, we also learnt a lot about the history of the area. It kept the kids entertained and they got to learn about the early settlers too!

Well done!

We have been to the Cape ever year. With this story, it brought out a very different world. A whole new dimension came up. Very useful app. Each point of interest was tied with my phone gps. If you have time, go through all the stories at home first. Well done!
