The street is three miles long and a must when in town. In fact, it is the only thing to do while in town. Not much else. It is filled with great cafes, art galleries and shops.

Shop, eat, drink, smile! Everything you want and more are along Commercial Street. If you don't like crowds, this is NOT the place to be, but if you want to be in the thick of things, then this is for you!

Loved walking up and down this lively shopping street, with its little independent shops and restaurants. There was a real buzz about it, people playing instruments etc. Could have happily stayed longer. Just need to remember that although the traffic is moving really slowly it is a 1 way street with a constant flow of traffic, easy to forget as... More

We enjoyed the drive on our first trip to Provincetown and I was pleasantly surprised by the abundance of affordable shopping on Commercial street. There was quite a bit of variety and price points found in the shops. Our trip was highlighted by many excellent end of season deals. MacMillan wharf was had more whale watching charters and less shopping... More

Lots of artistic choices (unique paintings, sculptures, etc.) and the usual 'tourist' shops for presents for the grandchildren.

Provincetown is filled with so many colorful people. People watching on Commercial St is fun especially if you are eating pizza in front of Spiritus.

This is the main street of Provincetown with all the sights and sounds that go with a main street. It has lots of shops to check out and places to eat and drink. You never know who or what you will see when strolling down the street. It is fun way to spend the day, but if you get there... More
