We loved the food, music and overall vibe of p-town. Our kids (5yo, and 8yo) loved the cross dressers yelling on the street to get folks into their bars, taverns etc. We had our fill of ice cream, toffee, and candy for the rest of the year. The kids felt like they were in some wierd Disney spectacle for much... More

This is pretty much what I expected. Lots of places to waste your money on kitschy souvenirs and food (though the food is pretty good in some of the places). Forgive the pun but this main "drag" is also a place to see, um, unconventional people. If you are a people watcher you might enjoy this. For me, the novelty... More

Loved this street, especially the galleries area. There is plenty of options for parking ($10) along the street. The restaurants options are numerous. Great street to wander!!

The street is crowded and lively, yet it seems comfy compared to other parts of P-Town. Great to enjoy as a family with live music, good restaurants and different types of shops.

some say it's 'touristy', but seriously, you're in a holiday town - what did you expect? i liked it. convenient and easily accessible with restaurants, cafes, food stands, shops and galleries all lined up in quaint little cottages with little or no traffic. a nice walk after dinner too!

Be sure to get a spot early and watch the pre-parade fun! As for Commercial Street - walk out east and west to enjoy the less touristy stores and lovely homes.

Bustling street that should just be blocked off for foot traffic only. Lots of fun, colorful shops and people watching. Could use a couple more stores for little kids but hey it's still great.

Enjoyed walking in and out of stores. There's something for everyone. We also enjoyed the super hero costumes or lack of for that matter. It's all smiles on Commercial Street.
