    Town Crier Graphic

    From the Town Crier: Side Street Walk

    It’s often been said that Provincetown is ‘three miles long and two streets wide’, but what lies between Commercial and Bradford Streets? One of my favorite walking tours is to zigzag up and down between the two, up to Bradford and then back to Commercial again, virtually anywhere between West Vine Street on the West End, all the way to Outermost Automotive (656 Commercial Street), at the point where Commercial Street and Bradford unite to form Route 6A. Stroll past colorful gardens and ramshackle homesteads, lavishly restored Victorian inns, and quirky beach cottages that harken back to a simpler era.
