If you like to watch people and pets, and even more exotic creatures you have to see to believe, you need to check out Commercial St. Sit on the benches by Town Hall and feast away.

Worth a walk down the street, but it is the typical beach street with fudge, ice cream, t-shirt shops, and food. However, thrown in the mix are a few monuments, some good restaurants, and an art district. The houses are neat to look at as well. My favorite yard was to the left of the library. Worth veering off the... More

This place was so fun! You do a lot of walking, but it is definitely a must to spend the day if you're in the area. The stores are cute, and there is a great variety. I spent a ton of money, shopping! Its vintage and quaint, but can get very crowded. I would suggest spending a day here for... More

There are beautiful flags hanging across the streets and it is mostly pedestrian and bikes. Everything is lit up and festive, like Disney World or New Orleans. There... More

Commercial Street is the main street of Provincetown, lined with galleries, shops, restaurants, and bars. Strolling up and down its 2-mile length is an adventure in navigating a sea of pedestrians, bikes zipping and weaving about, and cars that inch along. Daytime brings out an array of people from gay and lesbian couples, straight families, drag queens and entertainers. But... More

This place is fun fun fun, so much to do and see, great restaurants and shops. P-town is the best place, attracts a lot of older gays and young families. It is a must see on Cape Cod, the beaches are wonderful here. Do a whale watch while you are here, P-town is a marvel.
