With plenty of interesting little shops, the commercial street is loooooong. It's very gay friendly, can see couples happily holding hands on the street, almost feeling celebrating and liberating.

This was about an hour drive from where we were staying in Cape Cod. Its a nice town to walk through. Great little shops. Plenty of places along the streets to eat. Just a nice thing to do for the day. We spent about 3 hours walking around & had lunch. You probably could spend all day, as there were... More

Commercial Street is so much fun. It has lovely art galleries, shops, great restaurants but the people watching is the best. If you go to P-Town, you have to visit Commercial Street.

A great tourist street lined with shops, restaurants and countless ice cream places. What we liked the most is there were no chain retailers, so each store offered something different. From antiques to new designs, they have it all. My wife was particularly fond of all the jewelry shops!! Prices are typical for a tourist area, so it isn't the... More

There are very few places I am biased to, however, Provincetown is one. Whether it be strolling Commercial street during the day, window shopping or checking out the stores, sitting on an outside patio at one of it's wonderful restaurants or just sitting at city hall watching and listening to the musicians, people and going on at night. It is... More

A great New England town where love is love is love is love. Fabulous food. Great shopping. Water expeditions (whale watching, ferries mainland, parasailing, shuttle to Long Point). People watching!!! Stay an hour - stay all day. Love this town!

This was my go to place every day for dining, shopping and so much more. It was so easy to get to by the local bus service which lets you off right in the middle of downtown. You have your choice of restaurants and so many shops for souvenirs of all kinds.

I'm biased - I adore Provincetown and I've been there in the spring, summer, fall and winter. Commercial Street is a different experience in each season. It's charming and a testament to how a community has chosen to honor its heritage as a Portuguese fishing village that has become a destination point for artists, beach lovers and those who want...
