About Truro


With over 75% of its land designated as National Seashore, Truro is one of the most pristine and undeveloped little towns on the East Coast. We have no fast food restaurants, no stoplights, no mail delivery and one vineyard. Truro boasts the most beautiful of beaches, a historic lighthouse, a stunning golf course over looking the ocean, and a surprising number of delicious restaurants for such a tiny place.

Perfectly situated between Provincetown with its unique character and its frenetic energy and the fishing village of Wellfleet, with its galleries, beautiful harbor and traditional New England draw, Truro is a perfect place to stay.
