Quinte Town but low season does not have much happening in town. Good to take in the north east coastal village feel. The sand dune and dike are much better and fun with teens

Commercial Street is a bustling spot full of curiosities that present the past and present of Cape Cod. Vendors offer their wares at reasonable prices. Wear comfortable shoes and dive into the crowd.

Commercial Street has everything, it's where everything happens from dusk to dawn. You will have to get used to sharing the street with vehicles as it is a very narrow street and you will sometimes have to switch sides on occasion.

Commercial Street is a gayer, slightly run-down mix of State Street in Madison and Main Street in Wisconsin Dells. The crowd seemed to be having a good time browsing the shops and wandering up and down the street. I enjoyed it. We were there on the last day of the Bear Festival. We saw some bears. They were friendly.

We love to visit Provincetown and cruise down Commercial Street. Whether it's off season or peak, it is a fun place to shop, grab a bite to eat, a glass of wine or people watch. Lots of entertainment. We go for yard sale weekend Spring and Fall, the PAAM garden tour, Halloween, or just with friends. The shops are always... More

While visiting late November the East End of Commercial Street was under major construction it did not detract from the quaint and adorable aspects of the street. Down the east end there are many excellent little galleries and as one heads west a great selection of shopping options. Very few open at this time of the year which suited us... More
