Commercial Street is the lively center of Provincetown and is an experience not to be missed. It is an open and accepting atmosphere where people of all ages, races,sexes, and lifestyles can come and be themselves. The street is best for people-watching at all hours of the day or night. It is primarily a pedestrian area but for the few daring drivers who creep through, and the bikers who think they are on the Tour De France circuit, so keep your eyes open! The crowds are big most days and you will see all kinds of people. The shops and restaurants are as varied as the people, from cheap T-shirt shops to expensive artists studios. The chain stores and restaurants are nowhere to be found, and that's a nice change. There are many fine restaurants, but the best are in the East and West ends, so you may have to walk a bit, but it is worth it! If you like to party and have a great time, visit Commercial Street in the evenings and on the weekends. It is a blast!
