Long stretch of shops and restaurants. In the middle is the pier with more shops, whale watching tour boats and ferries to Boston. Great view from end of the pier. Street was crowded on a Thursday in late June, can't imagine how crazy it is...More

Lined with shops, bars, restaurants, galleries, homes, and musicians/performers on the street. Wonderful to experience both during the day and the night. It's a narrow, one way street open to traffic. Saw many people walking in the street without regard to traffic, guess locals are...More

We are heading to Provincetown for our anniversary which is coming up June 5th. Can anyone suggest a nice restaurant on the water for an anniversary dinner? It doesn't have to be super fancy. It looks like the area is pretty casual. Mainly looking for great food and views.

Hi we just returned from Provincetown and thoroughly enjoyed it. We would recommend The Red Inn, can be a little pricey but very good food. We also loved Fanizzi's by the sea & the Lobster Pot. If you go to the Lobster Pot... More

I believe most will be open. A lot of people live there all year round.
I am thinking of going to p-town between Christmas and new years, wondering if the shops and restaurants are open then?
