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.

I love commercial Street in P Town any time of year, but bear week is especially memorable. All kinds of people, all shapes and sizes, all together in one little town.

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...

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

Shops, guest houses, and restaurants fill this street on both sides from the pier all the way to the coast guard station. There is no lack of interesting things there for everyone to enjoy. 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
