Things To Do

Be sure to make time for a trip to the Highland Museum and nearby Highland Light. The view across the National Seashore, which comprises an estimated 70 percent of the town, is worth every step up the lighthouse. A museum visit gives you insights into the lives of the people of Truro dating back to early European settlers and the Native Americans that preceded them.

Take a class in crafts, photography, or writing at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill. More than 100 different classes and workshops are offered and everyone from accomplished professionals to enthusiastic novices is welcome, and there are workshops designed specifically for the youngest creative minds.

Beach It!

Head to Corn Hill Beach and nearby Corn Hill—so named because the Mayflower Pilgrims found a cache of corn hidden here by the Indians—for a gorgeous drive on old winding roads, followed by terrific views of the bay and Provincetown plus houses perched treacherously on the edge of the cliffs. This is the only bayside Truro town beach open to the public.
