It is well-known as a G/B/L/T community and you will meet many interesting and unique individuals here, as well as some wonderful jewelry and art boutiques. The main reason I go is to people watch. Lots of families, but also... More

Commercial St is chock-a-block with excellent shops. Home decor, clothing, unique gifts, jewelry, art galleries abound. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops. Several bars. Be advised pretty much the whole street closes down the week after New Year's and begins to gradually reopen on Valentine's Day. Several shops don't reopen until April or May. That said, Provincetown off-season without the... More

We loved people watching and window shopping in Commercial Street. It seemed like everyone and their dog (literally) was there. It's got a bit of a carnival atmosphere, but still laid-back and family-friendly.

Great time to visit Ptown, find out where the locals go. Some businesses are closed for the season but others are waiting to serve you.

Great place to visit. We enjoy in off season. Less crowed and still a lot still to do. Free parking. Friendly people. Good food and lodging. Don't miss the Marine Store.

Even Thanksgiving weekend, the streets are crowded and most stores are open for business. Bargains everywhere to be had as stores are getting ready to reduce inventory and some are closing for the season. A great time of year to be in Provincetown.

The countryside & coast around are stunning but after a quick visit I'd give the town centre a miss!

My new home away from home, Ptown. I love this place! It's eclectic and exciting. There are lots of interesting people to talk to and people are friendly and kind. Most shops are open on weekends and its still a vibrant place in the off season. Amazing eateries, shopping, dancing and the beach! What else is there...oh the ART GALLERIES!... More
