The Perfect Day in Truro
Truro undergoes one of the biggest summer swells on Cape Cod. This tranquil seaside town of 2,000 during the off-season expands tenfold to accommodate happy visitors looking for rest and relaxation along quiet wooded lanes and on the sands of stunning beaches.
Breathe in fresh ocean air on the outdoor patio at the Top Mast Café (508-487-2099) over a hearty, home-cooked breakfast. Located just steps from the sea, the café dishes out super breakfasts. Further down Route 6A, Pond Village Beach is a sleepy little beach perfect for soaking up some morning sun without the hustle and bustle of large crowds. Anglers can often be seen surfcasting, hoping for their next big catch.
Wine aficionados and amateurs alike are in for a pleasant afternoon at Truro Vineyards (508-487-6200). Tastings are held every half hour in the outdoor pavilion where visitors can sample several different wines. Two complimentary tours of the vineyard are held daily from Memorial Day to Columbus Day weekend. Keep the Mediterranean flare going at Montano’s (508-487-2026), where you can find delicious Italian cuisine—the pasta and home-baked bread here are scrumptious. For a fine picnic spot, head to the Pamet River.
High atop the Truro dunes sits the Highland Museum and Lighthouse (508-487-3397). The perch at the top rewards climbers with views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Cod Bay, while the museum tells the story of the town’s earliest residents. For great seafood, stop in to Moby Dick’s (508-349-9795). Truly delicious pizza can be hard to come by outside of major cities, but the brick oven pizzas at Sweet Escapes & Savory Pizza Grill (508-487-2225) never disappoint. Leave room for the homemade ice cream.
