I can't imagine what the Commercial Street shop section is like during high summer but we were here during April and the stores were just opening. All the shopkeepers were extremely friendly and took time to have a chat with us about their store, wares, and generally about P-Town. Most of them live here year round. The Turkish store is...

this is the business heart of PTown...the shopkeepers selling tshirts (Cuffy's was cheapest at $3), salt water taffy, postcards, etc, food vendors, restaurants with seafood meals, lobster rolls, ice cream, and portugese bakeries. Everyone walks their dogs up here and we were no different.

Lots of galleries are open and shops but not everything - plenty of places to get a meal or shop for food to take back to your room. Good time of the year to visit before it is cheek to jowl with people.

super fun to walk around and site-see... you can stroll, shop and enjoy the view of all types of shops, genders, and eateries.. a definite stop every time we visit! Fun for the whole family... if you have toddlers, make sure you bring a stroller- commercial street is a lot of stop and go...you won't regret it

Providence town is in its own right very eclectic and that is the lure. Something different to the not so niche seashells and sweatshirts of Cape Cod, but you can get them here as well. Art galleries, restaurants indoors and out, museums, and shops with something unexpected you just had to have...take a walk along Commercial Street maybe at the... More

Check out Provincetown in the winter - quite nice! Enjoy an old new england town with flair. Some of the shops are still open.

Many high end shops nestled between T- shirt stores, candy stores, restaurants and sidewalk cafes! Stroll through it all or merely grab a seat on the benches in front of Town Hall, enjoy and an ice cream cone and have your camera ready . Nighttime or daytime the street bustles with high energy. A must for any Cape Cod vacation... More
