This is a must to do in PTown. Lots of shops, restaurants, views of the Bay and of the locals. Don't forget to go for a walk in the National Park.

Lots of fruit here. Some people have issues with fruit, you know? Makes their gums bleed, probably a pollen allergy or something.

Provincetown is filled with history, from the 1st landing of the Mayflower to the Portuguese influence. Visit and climb the Pilgrim Monument and visit the Museum. Little town with lots of activity. The people are friendly and relaxed.

Even I enjoyed shopping here. Great mix of clothing, trinket shops and just plain nutty shops. Go into Maritime industries about half way along, incredible amount of stuff but the collectables on display and hanging from roof is unreal

There are a plethora of gift shops, galleries, & restaurants. Street performers were a treat. The beach and piers are right there as well. Was surprised at being able to buy low priced souvenirs.

We spent so much time on Commercial street with all the art galleries - I bought my first piece of art and spent almost two hours with the artist - fantastic experience

We are heading to Provincetown for our anniversary which is coming up June 5th. Can anyone suggest a nice restaurant on the water for an anniversary dinner? It doesn't have to be super fancy. It looks like the area is pretty casual. Mainly looking for great food and views.

I believe most will be open. A lot of people live there all year round.
I am thinking of going to p-town between Christmas and new years, wondering if the shops and restaurants are open then?
