The walk in on and around Commercial Street is another must. Business are in themselves interesting colorful and we ended up buying some nice things. Make sure you go end to end and up and down the side streets. Plan on having lunch in one of the many places. Best time to be there is the Fall.

It is a great place to walk and just watch the scenery as well as people watching. Lots of unique shops, great finds of antiques, and souvenirs.

Drive through or take a tour. Cute street, but crowded and shops mostly t-shirt and tourist goods. Good restaurants on waterfront, bars and nightlife. Children seemed bored, but good snacks and lots of benches. Parking limited.

Arrived after sunset on Sunday night, and felt safe walking around. The town was bustling. Lots to see and eat.

This is the first of two beaches fairly close to town center. I prefer this to Race Point because it's a much shorter walk to the water. Go in the morning and do some beach combing. You won't find many shells, but it's really interesting to see so many round/oval rocks and pebbles of all colors. Return in the evening... More

Commercial St is not all that long and there are quite cool places to visit along it. We enjoyed looking at some of the restaurants to plan where we were going to eat at night. Go both in the day and at night as the atmosphere is different.

Commercial Street is a one way street with a lot of small shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars to stop in. I suggest you either rent a bike or park and walk along Commercial Street.

Just a note: you're insane to try to drive down Commercial Street unless you have a seriously good reason. Pedestrians don't honor cars, nor should they. Commercial Street has all the shops, restaurants, guest houses, performers hawking their shows, romantic couples of all types, and not-safe-for-work slogans that you come to Provincetown to experience. We love it. We just park... More
