We visited Commercial Street during the off season of March 2017. It is a tight and very narrow way and there was some paving underway. It must be very challenging during the peak season and probably best to find a parking spot and walk it.

Great shops. Fantastic food. Historic sites. Unique and interesting stores. Dead in winter, but crazy, crazy fun in the summer.

Some stores were open and some restaurants were open. We went from Feb 11th to Feb 13th, during a snow storm, so I'm not too sure what stores might have been open, if the weather was better.

I have been travelling to Provincetown since I was a child and it still doesn't fail to impress me. Commercial Street is a fun ride, I highly recommend it.

Excellent shops and restaurants. ..not very tacky and great people watching. By day it's mostly day trippers who are vacationing else where and by night it's the gay/lesbian crowd with a lot of straight folks for good measure. Grab a seat on the benches at town hall and experience the unending parade of the denizens of this diverse community

I practically grew up in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I travel there around three times a year and my favorite spot is a nearby town, Provincetown, also known as P-town.

Lots of fun and excitement in a Honkey Tonk environment. Great for walking and people watching. Upscale next to cheap boutiques.

Visited PTown for a night at the end of a three day trip to Boston, and although it was a cold January visit still quite a few places open. Beautiful street with some lovely buildings and great shops and bars. Visited Jimmys for dinner, bayside betsys for drinks and lunch, stayed at the sage inn which was really central. Will... More
