This handsome granite marker — 2 miles to Provincetown, 75 miles to Plymouth — is in front of the Last Unicorn Condominium at No. 962. Sharp-eyed travelers, knowing of the keen rivalry over the Pilgrims between the two places, may wonder why they’re being welcomed to Provincetown with the seal of Plymouth Town. But what’s on the marker is actually the seal of Plymouth Colony, which makes historical sense, since the colony included Cape Cod. So, stand down.
