A quaint beach town enveloped by the Cape Cod National Seashore, Truro is known for its enchanting landscape and creative spirit.
Truro might be the second to last town before you reach the tip of Cape Cod, but when it comes to natural beauty, this town is second to none. With nearly half of its land located within the Cape Cod National Seashore, Truro’s majestic scenery appears much as it did when the town was first settled in 1700. In addition to its many magnificent beaches, the town also boasts myriad kettle ponds, walking trails, and rivers that provide endless outdoor fun. For over a century, the resplendent natural light that covers Truro’s rolling hills and dunes has drawn artists here from all over the world, including the renowned Edward Hopper, and there remains a culture of creativity that continues to thrive today.
Truro is nestled between Wellfleet and Provincetown in the Outer Cape Region and is 105 miles from Boston. For those who want to skip the traffic, the high speed ferry from in Provincetown offers Truro residents a convenient connection to Boston.
For many residents, owning a shingle-style home in Truro is like living in an Edward Hopper painting. The dunes, marshes, and ocean views are all on full display and blessed with the Outer Cape’s distinctive light. From quaint beach cottages and “saltboxes” to sprawling compounds, there is a wide range of luxury real estate to be found here. Throughout the town, one will find charming neighborhoods nestled into the landscape that many families have been coming to for generations, such as Pamet Roads, Corn Hill, and Shearwater, each of which holds its own unique identity.
As of September 2021, the median home sale price is $725,000 and the median days on market is 86 days. Luxury real estate prices typically start around $1,000,000 in Truro and reach as high as $5,000,000 for breathtaking beachfront homes.
With Cape Cod Bay on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, life in Truro quite literally revolves around the water. The summertime, in particular, is when this sleepy beach town comes alive and days are spent lazing on the beach, sailing on the bay, or kayaking the Pamet River. A few of the area’s best beaches include Coast Guard Beach, Corn Hill Beach, and Head of the Meadow Beach, but there are plenty of fun activities available for land lovers, as well. Whether exploring the Pamet Area Trails or playing a round of golf at Highland Links, Cape Cod’s oldest (and one of its most beautiful) courses, there is never a dull moment.
Of course, world-class seafood is readily available all around town and there are plenty of excellent restaurants offering a refined atmosphere, such as Montano’s Restaurant and Blackfish. If you want to bring the daily catch home, the Cape Tip Seafood Market is the place to go. Truro’s close proximity to Provincetown also provides residents with easy access to some of the best bars and restaurants on the Cape.
As a haven of artists and thinkers, it should come as no surprise that Truro has a vibrant creative community. In addition to the many galleries found around town, the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is a treasured institution that hosts workshops and events in a wide range of disciplines. At the Payomet Performing Arts Center, live music, theater, and film screenings are held throughout the summer and draw audiences from all across Cape Cod.
