Great, in center of town

Interesting shops, places to eat, and the characters you see; you could sit and watch all day, a lot of fun.

Definitely worth walking around if you happen to be on the outer cape. Nice mix of restaurants, shops, and galleries, with everything from cheap t-shirts to designer sunglasses.

there actually are rainbows everywhere. We loved it. Great atmosphere, delicious food (try one of the salad bars- they offer fresh salad and health food; also try thecookies and chocolate places!). They have a HRC Store where you can buy TShirts and support HRC.

You can visit any shop you can imagine. All the proprietors are happy to have you browse and of course buy. There a slew of eateries and they all want your business. From pizza to full meals, candy to ice cream, try as many as you can . He residents will treat you to their world and some even put... More

From the shops to the people, Provincetown is a very unique place to visit. Plan on parking your car and walking around the town for the day as driving can be a bit unnerving. Shoppers and bicyclist meandering through the street makes for tough driving. But overall, it's like one BIG street fair. You'll have a great time.

Go to explore and check out the shops, people watching and water views. Shops with everything from fudge to high end jewelry, books, t-shirts. Easy to spend the day in this part of the cape.

Thoroughly enjoyed the galleries. The Governor Bradford restaurant is one of the first on the street. My advice, skip it. Long wait, paid $14 for a child size scallop role and the Lobster roll is just as small. An absolute treat is the Lisa Ventre Hats shop - it is a must! Beautiful, unique Hats made from natural Toyo.

THE central thoroughfare in "P'town" and great for: > walking > snacking on fried clams & 'lobsta' rolls > fine dining > shopping > people watching - the 'sights' change daily! > just hanging out And leave the car in the parking lot at the wharf or the hotel/B&B!

My husband and I went to the Cape for a few days for a short honeymoon. This was the part we enjoyed. We would come back to spend time in PTown again. Great people watching. Great food and Portuguese Bakery. Next time we will see a show. Stay away from overpriced Ben and Jerry's. We would rather have had local... More
