Walking the shops of PTown is always fun and interesting. There is more variety here than in most towns because of the mixed fishing & art colony heritage. Somewhat like San Francisco, on a smaller scale, PTown also has it's share of sensationalism, and a few shops cater to sensual tastes. If you can look past those, this is a great place to buy art, watch interesting people, and have a fine meal or two while enjoying a stroll in the salt air. I go every year !

I know most people visit PTown in Summer. Not me! I love it in winter, when I can calmly walk up and down Commercial Street, and enjoy all the lovely stores and art galleries. I find the homes on the East end charming and so cosy.

Commercial Street is a nice long stroll that runs the whole length of Provincetown. All sorts of shops, galleries and restaraunts line the sides.
It passes by a lot of the most significant and historical structures in the town, and is so long it makes it easy to navigate through town, because you don't ever have to change streets.
It wasn't at all crowded when I went in the springtime, and I had a great time.

I have travelled all over the United States and other countries and I promise you that there is NO street like Commercial Street in the WORLD! This is a street of pure happiness, eclectic shops, galleries, clubs, bars, restaurants and NO IGNORANCE! It's a place where same sex couples can be very comfortable and be 100% themselves and not worry about one ignorant look. It's a place that should be the setting of how every street should be! I just wish they wouldn't allow cars except for local traffic .. owners of stores or homes to drive down. They should just shut it down to locals only. Otherwise it's PERFECT!!!
