PROVINCETOWN (CBS) — Boston may not exactly be known for being welcoming to travelers, but apparently that reputation doesn’t extend to other parts of New England. Four travel destinations in the region appear on Expedia’s Top 20 list of “The USA’s Friendliest Cities Of 2021.”

Provincetown, known for being one of the most LGBTQ friendly spots in the country, comes in at No. 10. And Maine has three entries on the list: Kennebunkport (7), Ogunquit (9) and Bar Harbor (16).
