Shops, restaurants, bars, cafes.... So much to enjoy! Beautiful houses in various colours, it's worth wandering along the street just for the architecture and scenery. Great little shops for gifts and treats, from fun tshirts to fine jewellery. Great eateries too; there are informal pubs and cafes plus take away stands and coffee shops. Lovely park in the middle plus... More

Spent the day in PTown walking everywhere. It reminded me of St Maarten with the colorful buildings, narrow roads, shops and visitors.

Commercial Street in P-Town is by far (in my opinion) one of the best places on earth to people watch. There are all walks of life doing there there at any given time of the day. In addition to people watching Commercial Street is the main "Drag" , there are places to eat , to shop, or just a great... More

Commercial is the main strip in Ptown. It has TONS of great restaurants, shops, galleries, etc from which to choose from. It is also great to just sit on a bench or outdoor eatery and simply people watch. Everything you would ever want or need is on this strip!

It was a very interesting visit with many eclectic shops. Just a fun walk through town. They had old time shops, lobster shops, ice cream shops, as well as novelty shops. You can walk the pier and see the many boats and sightseeing ships that are anchored there.

Commercial Street is like no other street in the world, the shops, the food, the people, the entire atmosphere, everyone is so down to earth and extremely friendly.......the shops are a little on the pricey side but there is something here for everyone.........all vehicle traffic should be banned once you get close to the main hub......it's a lot to handle,...

Throngs of people stroll down this street. Some of them are quite the characters. There are a number of unique shops. This street would be much improved if they banned cars. Everyone is walking in the street; bicycles are everywhere and then along comes - a car.

There is something in P-town for everyone. Lots of different shops, galleries, restaurants, beaches. But by far my favorite part of Provincetown is the feeling. Everyone is welcomed. Large, small, big, tall, furry, bald, young, old. Come one, come all. The vibe is wonderful. I can't wait to go back. One afternoon is not enough.
