We had a great time walking on Commercial street. A lot of the shops are still closed but there is still plenty opening to quench your shopping needs.

Packed with restaurants and dessert shops. Antiques and specialty stores line the street. Some places are adult friendly - Toys of Eros and The Purple Feather.

Commercial street is the premium business area in Provincetown and it's great to walk down. It was heaps better in the off season but it's still annoying when the cars come down and there's little or no footpath. Make it a car free Plaza.

Spent the day walking through the shops, gazing at the ocean and relaxing. The street is heavily congested with traffic and pedestrians however, everyone was respectful of one another. Cool shopping, great friendly people and a nice day. Sadly since it is early in the tourist season some of the stores were not open but still plenty were. Very nice... More

Having lived in Provincetown for 25 years. Commercial St has changed in many way. But it is always an adventure for all ages. Today was a beautiful. Early signs of seasons start are in the are. Day trippers, weekenders, and locals all out on the street enjoying the street scene. Come on down to the tip of the cape and... More

We were there before almost every business was open for the season. It was somewhat frustrating not to be able to do the typical tourist things, but it allowed us to enjoy the New England town without 250,000 other people.

America at its finest. Fun people and lots of activities. The most diversified collection of people you will find in one place.

The Lion in Winter. At the beginning of April at night there was not a soul in sight on Commercial Street. Which is just as well as the road is being repaved and there are no parking signs. Most shops and restaurants are shuttered. It is great to visit preseason for a sense of the Old Provincetown before summer madneess.

Thank Gonzology
