If you’re like me, part of a great vacation is all the awesome things you find in stores that are totally new to you! I always buy something and, at the very least, it’s a Christmas ornament that’s unique to that location! So if you’re coming to Provincetown for Bear Week, there are a whole host of cool shops and galleries to choose from.
For the ultimate shopping experience, start at one end of Commercial Street and work your way down and back without missing a shop! If you don’t have that much time, however, we have picked some favorites that we think you will enjoy.
