We spent part of our 1969 honeymoon in Provincetown ... and we've gone back almost every year since. We're always delighted, not only by the things that haven't changed, but also by the new shops and restaurants that keep the street fresh and interesting. There are fewer places more perfect for people watching, browsing, picking up funky gifts, and, basically,... More

We drove to P Town from NH and enjoyed Commercial Street. Lots of cool unique shops, clothing stores and Galeries with great views of the Bay

Shops, restaurants, the waterfront - all fantastic! We walked up and down several times and saw something different every time.

The best thing about P-Town is it's diversity - including the choices available to you on this one street. Wonderful restaurants, shopping - high end or wonderful bargains, every type of bar that you desire - show bars, piano bars, T-dances or neighborhood watering holes. And of course Commercial Street is the perfect people watching street - take a seat... More

Commercial Street in Provincetown is a phenomenal invitation to all to engage in life. A sort of well orchestrated "dance" including young & old, conservative & creative all dining, shopping, enjoying shows, mesmerized by art. It's always a good day to be alive on Commercial Street.

It doesn't matter what you're looking for - people watching, jewelry, art by on Cape artists, reproductions of said art, history, traditional fare, Portuguese pastry, homemade ice cream, etc. You'll find it all here; all very accessible with that P-Town flavor that encourages such eclectic, artistic, and vibrant flavors. You can't go to P-Town and not walk down Commercial Street.

We walked the strip of commercial street and it is great for retail and people watching. There are great restaurants and coffee shops. While staying in town you will quickly become familiar with this strip as everything revolves around commercial street!

We arrived in Provincetown late one evening and decided to take a stroll down Commercial Street to find a restaurant. Most shops were closed but we enjoyed window shopping as well as the old historic homes that lined this small quaint street. Our hotel was located on this street as well and gave us a perfect water view. We fell... More

Recovering Hearts is run by Leslie and Sharon. (I hope I got their names right) What a beautiful shop. The women are so kind and friendly. I bought a memorial stone, and when I told Leslie that my beloved husband had died just six months ago, she hugged me and put a beautiful little glass heart in my hand. I... More
