We love the charm of Provincetown! It starts on Commercial Street, where everyone comes together to enjoy cafes, galleries, shops, and a big cross section of culture!

You have to love this charming place! So cozy, and full of life! Lots of shops with local art, but best of all, really cute little shops! No huge supermarkeds to be found, and that is just lovely! You can buy things/gifts/souvenirs here, that you can not find anywhere else. Lots of nice places to eat, and if you want... More

We have been coming to Herring Cove beach for over 30 years and have never seen the beach in such horrible condition. This beat was hit hard by winter storms and dunes have been affected. However, this gem needs a cleanup as we found sanitary products, soda/beer caps and garbage all over. It was sad to see it in this... More

Always wanted to visit Provincetown. So many fun shops! Ate on Commercial Street at an outdoor restaurant. Walked out on the wharf... Beautiful, relaxing visit. Very visible gay friendly, of course.

This wonderful town and it's main street has been a central place for the gay right's movement and for LGBT people and our families for many, many years. Don't go if you don't like LGBT people. This place is very special.

We spent 2 nights in Provincetown and in some ways that was enough and in others i could have stayed another week. Commercial street (or at least the happening parts) is not more than 3/4 mile long and after walking up and down it a few times you start to feel like you have seen it all. On the other... More

Shopping galore! Tons of art galleries and local shops for every taste. Variety of cafes and restaurants. Very crowded during high season, better off walking than trying to avoid the crowds on your bicycle.
