Commercial St in Provincetown is a must visit for my wife and I every year. We park way away from the center so we can walk and see all the hoes and gardens along the way. The sightlines of the ocean are terrific. The street itself contain endless little shops and many very good restaurants, Crowds are everywhere but there... More

If you can't find a restaurant, candy maker, gift shop or ice cream store on this street, you are not in Provincetown! Many shops for souvenirs, kids gifts, adult gifts, food, ice cream, fudge, etc. Leave your car at one of the many parking lots (They charge a fee) and walk the area or you will miss the best part...

My home away from home. Have grown up going to the Cape and always see something new or interesting when we visit P-town. Great place for shopping from souvenirs from the area to high quality local crafts and artisans. Always street entertainment, especially if you find a spot in front of City Hall or Library or on the main boardwalk.... More

We stayed in Provincetown in Dec. 2014 for several days and had the opportunity to explore Commercial St. from one end to the other. Even at this time of the year, shops and restaurants were open and eager to please. There is something for everyone on Commercial St. even if you just enjoy the show. There is certainly much more...

Always a fun time walking on Commercial. Some shops are old standbys yet every year there is some turnover making room for new ideas. Something for everyone.

Even in winter (we traveled over Presidents' Day Weekend), there are plenty of shops open and lots to look at and do!

What to say? Walking down the Commercial Street of Provincetown just makes you happy. This tolerant and open place was a good memory of our roadtrip in New England and Canada but unfortunately we just had the time to stay here for a couple of hours. But I just loved the place!

Provincetown Main Street While highly commercialized and full of tourists, Commercial St delights nonetheless with its colorful building facades and the plethora of interesting little shops and cafes. A lot of the shops are overpriced but that's what you get for walking down a tourist street. Just skip on souvenirs and take a nice stroll down the street. Remember to... More
