Truro, Cape Cod

Beyond a post office, a seasonal gourmet food market and a single blinking light, there is hardly a town to Truro, Massachusetts.  And beyond beautiful homes built into the hills and a narrow strip of tiny cottages and motels, there is little real commercial development here.

Beyond the highway is a sleepy and rural world of moors, hills, valleys and rivers with homes hidden amongst the trees. Back roads wind through fascinating scenery dominated by long rolling hills called “hogsbacks.”

Near a high ocean bluff overlooking the ocean is Cape Cod Light, which has been a warning beacon to mariners since the age of sail.

The beauty and solitude of Truro attract great numbers of busy city types who spend their annual summer vacations here.
