2018 Annual Guide: Truro
North Truro • South Truro • Truro
Cape Cod Light is Cape Cod’s oldest lighthouse, and it’s photogenic from any angle. Take a tour and enjoy bird’s-eye views from the tower! A site that’s both scenic and historic is Corn Hill Beach, where you can look up at Corn Hill, the place where a group of Pilgrims came upon a Wampanoag stash of corn and fresh water back in 1620.
Truro’s wild, natural beauty is showcased at the Cape Cod National Seashore’s Pilgrim Heights area, where the trail opens to stunning ocean views. When you want to be where the action is, Payomet Performing Arts Center is the place to be. Their lineup of shows gets more impressive each year, and the oceanside location is a draw in itself.
Mom & Pops:
Open daily year round, Salty Market in North Truro has updated the historic Dutra Building but maintained its homey spirit, making it an irresistible draw. With the arrival of their first child in March, owners Claire Adams and Ellery Althaus will officially be “Mom” and “Pop”!
The Truro Agricultural Fair, held Labor Day weekend, celebrates the sustainable farming that’s reviving the town’s agricultural roots, and has some fun with a pie-baking contest, zucchini race and beauty contest for animals. Another hometown celebration is Truro Treasures, Sept. 21-23, featuring the ever-popular grape stomp.
