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...

Spent the day in Provincetown and the week in Cape Cod. I'm so glad we decided to go to Ptown for the day. The drive there is beautiful, especially when your coming in through the dunes. The shops and restaurants along Commercial Street are plentiful. The people were friendly and happy. Who could ask for more. I would love to... More

There were lot of dogs on the street when we were there in July; and a farmer market was also opened next to the town hall... More

I've now walked this street a number of times and found the west end super busy with restaurants, bars, souvenir and interesting independent shops. The east end is less frantic with the Library, higher end restaurants, galleries and specialty shops. At night the west end becomes lively with street performers and and people out at bars and restaurants and having... More
