Commercial Street is truly the main street and hub while in P-Town. There are tons of shops, souvinirs, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, bakeries, performance halls, post office etc. You name it, it is most likely on Commercial Street. While we personally don't hit many of the shops, we like simply walking down and back and admiring the view and people... More

Spent a couple hours there this afternoon. The scenery is beautiful, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the shops, and I'm not usually one to like touristy shops. There are a bazillion restaurants from which to choose. Downside - they could improve the sidewalks a bit. It isn't just the stroller factor; they are actually dangerous and... More

Some awesome restaurants for seafood and those with a sweet tooth. Homemade ice cream, fudge, cotton candy and lobster bisque/clam chowder. Also top line shops. Theatres, bars, streetside attractions are plentiful. If you like risque types of performances and attractions, this is an interesting and talented place to see them in the evenings. Lots to do and see here.

Full of activity. The street is filles with restaurants, souvenir shops and art galleries. The have a wonderful of art pieces. Can be costly but I guess you can bargain. A walk in the commercial street with the ocean a few 100 feet away, with people relaxed and smiling is amazing to watch and experience.

Provincetown is Commercial Street. The street is narrow and loaded with restaurants, shops and stores all offering a variety of unique souvenirs and goods. We had a ball walking up and down the street during the day and night. It is very colorful and lively. There is lots of beautiful art work, jewelry and quality souvenirs to remember your trip...
