You never know what you may see, who you will run into, and there is something there for every one. It's a one way street that you can walk, ride a bike on or drive down. It's pretty chaotic but a great time for getting some food or drinks, going shopping or just doing some people watching. Commercial Ave. is... More

Provincetown Massachusetts will always stand out in my mind as one of the most interesting places on the planet. Originally an old whaling port and fishing village, P-Town, as it is referred to by those of us who lived in Massachusetts once upon a time, is a melting pot of artists, fisher-people, and visitors. There are so many things to... More

The street is awesome!!! People watching, people eating, people riding bikes and skateboards, dogs on skateboards, drag queens, trolley cars, and runners. Just look in every direction before you cross the street. It's not a place to bring strollers and small kids. Stores are small and tight. There are many shops, restaurants, and galleries to check out. Take your time... More

We feel like we are home when walking, shopping and dining on this street. You can see and interact with tourists from all over the world. It is one of the only places where a mixture of our American social structure can be felt and enjoyed

Provincetown was a great place to visit and some very neat stores to look in and sight see. To say this is a gay friendly community is an understatement. Provincetown makes San Francisco seem straight. There were many public displays of affection by members of the same sex. We enjoyed the town but you might not want to take young... More

Pros- eclectic assortment of shops, eateries, clubs, and Hotels. Generally clean and safe. Cons- cars try to get down. Would work better if the city set a time limit during which only authorized vehicles can get down the street. Summary- a great place to visit! More geared towards the LGBT population.
