Commercial street has everything your looking for, food, drinks, shops, beach, everything. Its best to come in the summer after april when all the shops open up. I came in the winter (march) and more than half the shops and attractions were closed but it was still fun. There are great bars, and friendly people. I will be going back.

We have been going here over 40 years and never get tired of it. Straight or gay, it doesn't matter as this is a place for everyone. Even a major fire a few years ago, hasn't changed the place. There is a large variety of shops and the restaurants are also very good, serving everything from pizza to Portuguese baked... More

Commercial Street is a must during a visit to Cape Cod. The unique shops, art galleries, restaurants, and the people are all fabulous. Stop at Cuffy's for souvenirs and/or inexpensive comfy clothes. Pick up some fudge and salt water taffy available in a large variety of flavors from one of the awesome candy stores. There are many places to choose... More

Commercial Street runs the length of Provincetown and offers great variety for long walks: elegant old homes in quiet stretches on both the far east and far western parts of the street, gorgeous water views, a wide range of shops from pricey boutiques to the Marine Specialties discount store (always fun and full of bargains) to the Provincetown Book Store,...

Commerial Street is Provincetown. Car traffic is second to the pedestrian and it has something unique in every building. An ice cream store is next to a clothing store and a candy store next to a jeweler. I love walking from Fanizzis to Bubbulas

Most of the stores were open and having great sales. The best place to people watch. Commercial in front of Joes is under construction but expected to be finished by December 12.

I visit Provincetown a couple of times a year because it is a very fun, friendly, "anything goes", kind of place. It is friendly to those with kids, with pets...singles & couples...gay? straight? It doesn't matter, Provincetown is a place to relax and enjoy the shops, food, beaches and the quaint small town. Go there and have a blast!
