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...

This place is alive!!! Great shopping, great restaurants, great entertainment!! And if you're more inclined to sit and do nothing, grab an ice cream from Lewis' and a bench and just people watch - you will not be disappointed.

For us, it was a combination of Fisherman's Wharf and the Castro District (San Francisco). Bunch of stores and bars (tourist prices), bunch of people watching. Not much else.

I loved all the shops and restaurants. I enjoyed a footlong hot dog at a stand right in the center. Then proceeded to the Portuguese Bakery and got dessert.

Love the vibe in P-town! We have family on the Cape and make a trip to P-town for the day every time we visit. Love the little shops and to just find a bench and hang out. Frequently you hear the sound of parties or laughter of good friends coming out of the many charming homes right in town. It... More

We went late August just for a daytrip for lunch from Providence. Couldn't find parking anywhere so had to leave. Also made the mistake of driving down Commercial Street. It is absolutely packed with people and bikes and many folks are oblivious to the fact that vehicles are on the road as well.

Thank anceti
