With its sand dunes, salty air, winding roads and quaint little villages, songwriters may just have been thinking about Truro when they penned Patti Page’s famous song “Old Cape Cod.” Known for spectacular sandy cliffs and dramatic vistas made famous by artists like Edward Hopper, the tiny town has an area of just over 26 square miles and a year-round population barely topping 2,000, yet still offers a wide variety of things to do and see. In one day, visitors can enjoy one of several beautiful beaches, visit a winery, tour Cape Cod’s oldest lighthouse, and enjoy first-class entertainment on summer evenings under the tent at Payomet Performing Arts. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the outstanding nature trails of the Cape Cod National Seashore, or a round of golf at America’s oldest links course, Highland Links. First settled in 1700 and incorporated in 1709, Truro is a small town full of history and charm, and has intentionally remained quiet and unpretentious, and yet the hustle and bustle of Hyannis and the glittering nightlife of Provincetown are still just a short drive away.
