Even the Kennedys went on Art’s Dune Tours. Visiting Cape Cod Dunes, a part of the Cape Cod Seashore National Park, when you are in Provincetown is an important part of the Cape Cod experience, and nobody does it like Art’s. Art has remained a legendary figure in town, even after his death.
He started the dune tours in 1946, driving tourists in his old station wagon and regaling them with the local history and lore. His son continues to take guests on one hour tours of the timeless expanse of sand dunes around Provincetown, showing them magnificent nature scenes along miles of sand - dry beach grasses, pine trees and dark red plums growing in dune hollows, silhouetted against the enormous expanse of blue sky.
You will also see the “dune shacks” where Eugene O’Neill and other artists looked for inspiration for their art, and you will pass by the wrecks of the Peaked Hill Life Saving Station, from which brave souls attempted to save thousands of shipwrecked mariners. The tour is conducted in comfortable air-conditioned trucks, in full comfort, and no walking is necessary. Read more
