The shops and boutiques of Provincetown, arrayed along Commercial Street, are as independent and creative as their owners. This is where to look for beachwear, accessories and fashion statements, for hand-crafted gifts, kitchen goods and ethically-sourced items. Commercial Street is more than retail therapy, of course. It’s a runway for the best people-watching in town.


It’s also where to find most of the town’s 50 plus art galleries, evidence of a vibrant and dynamics scene with the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) at its heart.
