What started out as a gathering of 200 members of the bear community in 2001 has grown to almost 10,000 men from over 40 states and more than a dozen countries — and it gets bigger every year. This year, Bear Week in Provincetown will take place July 11–19, 2015. But why wait until you get to P’town to start cruising bears?
During Bear Week, the ferries that run from Boston are chock full of handsome, hairy men looking to make friends. Stroll the deck, park yourself by the rail or belly up to the bar for a beer (yes, the ferry serves food and alcohol) for some pleasant conversation. Bears are notoriously friendly, so it will not be difficult to meet a new friend or two (or maybe even your afternoon trick) before you even hit P’town.
