It was Saturday afternoon when my husband and I arrived and they were obviously getting geared up for party night. On the surface it looks like a quaint little town - but underneath its a den of iniquity ! When the little seashell shops closed for the day, the s&m shops opened! We felt like we were the only straight... More

We had a great time walking the length of Commercial St, both by day and by night. Since the daylight is just about gone by 7 PM we walked back to our B & B with just the street lights and the lights in the store windows.

This is the main street. There are several crappy restaurants and tacky shops. And it's crowded. It's also very hard to find affordable parking. We found a large public parking reasonably priced (flat rate $6 next to the school, up in the hill, not far from the monument.

It's just fun to stroll the streets. Lots of ice cream shops, people watching, dog watching (everyone has a dog!). Lots of restaurants and shops too.

From the East end of Commercial St to the West end there are Art galleries, Inns, Hotels, Restaurants and coffees shops, Jewelers, T-shirt shops, boutiques, and more. Plenty of ways to spend your money! It's a one way street running from east to west and used by pedestrians, bicycles, and cars.Most of the time this wasn't an issue, most people... More

you have to walk the length of Commercial Street. Plenty of everything for everybody from good bars with great draft beers and chowder to t shirts, jewelry, photography studios, and of course a lot of art studios.

Enjoyed walking around and looking in many shops. I cannot imagine the summertime on this street with the ferry services in full force. We were glad to be visiting in October. You need at least 2 days here to enjoy the area.

A great walk from end to end in Provincetown. There are many interesting shops and great eating places along the way. There are street performers and the people watching is excellent.
