Off season is fun too, if you like solitude and quintessential New England ambiance. One of the friendliest places on earth, great food, people watching, nightlife, beach life, and New England at it finest.

No matter your preference, it's here, from simple ice cream, to the finest dining, from utilitarian kitchenware, to REALLY expensive art, it's all here, and very well presented, as well. Try it, you'll love it, and the food choices are to die for.....

A hat is recommended. There are some many things it is hard to pick which places are the best. The purple feather is a... More

We came during the off season, so most things were closed. Nonetheless, this street is filled with cute shops and wonderful restaurants. The most fun was to walk hand in hand down the middle of the street where it seems like you are the only two people in the world. We window shopped late at night to see where we... More

P-town feels just like you've walked into a Katy Perry film clip! The houses and businesses are every colour of the rainbow, there are rainbows everywhere! Street performers and music, American diners and awesome souvenir shops line Commercial Street. You instantly feel happier having taken a walk down it! So glad I was shown in by a friend - haven't...

A shame it's off season and many places are closed but in spite of that there are still many open stores and resteraunts! Good time with a good mix of shopping. It's a must see.

We went to one of those drag shows and found it very entertaining and worth the price of admission. Good place to stroll
