Commercial Street in Provincetown is where everything happens, eating, drinking, shopping, beaches, and entertainment. The weekends in the summer are very crowded and busy but you can't experience Provincetown without going to Commercial Street. One helpful hint, avoid the restaurants that have people outside trying to convince you to eat there, there's a reason they're begging for your business.

stopped on the way from Boston to Nyc. It was a very short visit of about 3 hours. We mainly wanted to enjoy a good sea food. We ended up eating at the lobster pot. Nice portions and very nicely presented. We waked for an hour along the small cafe and boutiques. Looked very lively and was ful of tourists.... More

My spouse & I never tired of walking up & down Commercial Street. There are restaurants, galleries, ice cream stores, & every other store you could need. The P-town library & town hall are also located on Commerical Street. The only drawback we noticed is the motor vehicle traffic down this street. Not only are you dodging other walkers &... More

The majority of the stores were galleries. They are mixed in with restaurants, local vendors and gift shops.There are several specialty shops such as homemade ice cream, coffee shops, cupcake store, a store of gifts made by women, shoe store and other various shops. My husband and I spent about one day's worth of touring the stores and figuring out... More

If you have the time, drive out the Mid-Cape Hiway (US 6) to the end. If you're in Boston, take the boat for a three hour cruise. Find a place to park and just start walking. Plenty of places to shop, eat, and sights to see. Would not try to do an out and back driving on the same day.... More

The town is always a great place to spend an afternoon walking around, visiting the shops and people watching Daytime you definitely get a touristy kind of feel to commercial Street, however that changes after the sun goes down.

You gotta do Commercial Street if you're in P'Town. Early in June, it was fairly innocuous but still energetic and fun. More tourists than local color at this time of year. Many interesting shops and entertainment choices.

The parades are interesting as different floats and holiday presentations are unique and some are exceptional. The people line the street ,some in their own chairs and... More

Commercial street, Provincetown is an absolute pleasure to visit. Vibrant and with lots of good offers, good restaurants and fun people watching from any bench along the way. We enjoyed our visit very much.

For an over 70 person, Provincetown has plenty to offer in way of restaurants, boutiques, charming Cape and Victorian houses, and street sights and local color if you can find a convenient bench or chair from which to watch the passing parade. On a hot to warm day, go for the shady side of the street. I was pretty exhausted... More
