“Diverse, interesting, fun, friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

You'll see everything from families with pets, singles, straight couples, gay couples, drag queens in hilarious outfits on bicycles, riding electric cars. Good restaurants, but do your homework so you don't get ripped off. Some have raised prices, and scaled down portions.

“Best to see the east side and other streets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The street has a honky-tonk feel on its west end, so its best to stroll on a few other streets, to see some beautiful homes and gardens. It had a carnival feel when I was there during the Portuguese Festival.

“Walk the entire length, up to Route 6A”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Someone needs to do a coffee table book of the houses and gardens on Commercial Street. Today (June) the roses and perennials are out and it is flat-out gorgeous. Small, lovingly-tended gardens. Intriguing art, nature, architecture and humanity. The whole thing is an aesthete's dream, even without entering any of the many art galleries. A leisurely stroll is the way to see it. Pause and soak it in. Don't miss Suzanne's garden... If you start from the east, you can then eat in any one of the restaurants in 'downtown' Provincetown.
