Fodor's Review

Take a casual stroll by the many architectural styles—Greek Revival, Victorian, Second Empire, and Gothic, to name a few—used in the design of the impressive houses for wealthy sea captains and merchants. The Provincetown Historical Society's walking-tour pamphlet is available for $1 at many shops. The center of town is where you'll find the crowds and the best people-watching, especially if you try to find an empty spot on the benches in front of the exquisitely renovated Town Hall. The East End has a number of nationally renowned galleries; the West End has a number of small inns with neat lawns and elaborate gardens. Commercial Street runs parallel to the water, so there is always a patch of sand close at hand, should you need a break.
