safe, clean and fun ! People just being free and being themselves with respect for others. A lot of shops of different styles and merchandise. Must stop in and see the BEST art gallery Albert Merola, where the owners are friendly and showcase up and coming as well as established artists. Many restaurants to choose from as well. thankfully no chain fast food.

We walked/DH husband ran the entire 3 miles each day of our 3 day stay. With our visit during Covid/preMemorial Day Weekend, many shops/several restaurants were not open yet or had limited hours, so I sadly stayed out of the stores, but lots of fun independent retailers/art galleries to explore in season. Walk the wharf, and if you go towards Truro, there is a beautiful stretch of historic homes and cottages with lovely gardens and Cape Cod cute factor to take in. Lots of people and dog watching too!

Every kind of shop/ store available. This was an artist's colony in the '20s, and it continues in that tradition with Bohemian owners and customers. Lots of restaurants and gift shops to enjoy yourself. Predominantly a gay community.

We have not been to P-Town in over 25 years! It has really expanded. For the most part (99%?) of the visitors were masked. 100% of staff seemed masked. Our kids were struck by how friendly everyone seemed. Enjoyed the variety of stores and food. Some wait to get into stores due to maintaining reduced occupants for social distancing. Lunch and dinner at two highly rated spots were terrific. A fun day! (Great place to people watch—albeit “masked” people!)

Worth the walk. Nice quaint town feel. Just be prepared to get gouged if you are hungry, thirsty, or want to purchase just about anything. At night, it can get a little tricky with your children (depending on their age and curiosity) asking question you may not be prepared to answer.

Store owners were very friendly & helpful, bought Prayer Flags at one & browsed a lot of them, fun time just looking for things. Got one cute T-Shirt as well. A lot of folks but fun, all wear masks in this part of town.

The street is so long with so many stores (sweats and tees, jewelry, fine art, dispensaries, icky beach clothing, etc.) and restos. Visually, it's fun. Physically, walking it is good exercise after a big meal. Otherwise, it's kind of boring, made better by a drink or two, especially at a seaside bar.

We were hoping to walk this but saw how many other people were present during COVID and it was a turn off. People were masked. However, there were so many other people that we realized it was too much or a risk. So, we drove down Commercial Street. I can't imagine how hopping this place must be in the middle of summer.

Everyone from everywhere is walking this street and such a friendly place to be yourself. Masks are required on commercial street....maybe because there were almost 0 covid cases and they are trying to keep their community healthy. Traffic control passing out masks if you dont have on. If you dont believe in the covid virus Please dont harrass the merchants, they are doing their best, and dont need belligerent folks yelling about their rights to shop without a mask in their tiny stores.

We love P'town both in and out of season; this year, we wondered if COVID-19 would turn it into a ghost town. No worries, though; it's true that on a warm Saturday, it was not nearly as crowded as most of our other summer visits. That being said, it is less crowded and generally quieter; not so many people, all in summer clothes and masks. Most of the shops are open, but since many are quite small, the number of people allowed in is restricted.

My take is: go visit, enjoy the lighter crowds, support the P'town community and merchants.
