There's a subtle sophistication to the town of Truro Massachusetts. But, this is a town where families have good old-fashioned summer vacations. Days are spent at the beaches, hiking, bicycling, climbing to the top of the Highland Light and joining ranger-guided activities at the National Seashore. Evenings can easily be filled with campfires on the beach, dinners on the barbecue, chasing fireflies, watching for shooting stars ... and the must-do outing to the drive-in movie in Wellfleet. And let's not forget to add a vineyard tour and wine tasting, galleries, sunsets on the Bay, and excellent restaurants.
When the inevitable urge comes for more excitement, the crazy-busy town of Provincetown is only a few minutes up the road. That's the place for whale watching, dune tours, harbor cruises, museums, shopping, and tons of great food.
Not quite on the tip of the Cape Cod peninsula, Truro is bordered by Provincetown to the north and by Wellfleet to the south.Truro's easterly shoreline is on the Atlantic Ocean, and Cape Cod Bay stretches along the town's western coast.
