Best Rated Things to Do in North Truro

  • Contemplating the Curve of the Earth

    The Curve of the Cape in the Distance

    Well not the whole earth exactly, but from your beach chair on the Bay you do get a nice view of the curve of the very tip of the Cape. It's cool. And it's a fun activity to try when you tire of reading Harper's or that stack of Harlequin Romances you brought along--or for when you need to get up out of your chair to refresh your mojito, whichever comes first. We enjoy it ourselves, especially when someone blurts out, "Hey, did you ever notice that you can see the curve of the tip of the Cape from here?" every 45 minutes.

  • Banging on Buckets and Pretending They are Drums

    Miss M Takes a Whack at It

    Another fun beach activity in North Truro involves banging on buckets and pretending they are drums. You can imagine that you are in a rock band, or simply sit back and enjoy the rythym while having the satisfaction of knowing that you are bugging the hell out of the annoying, snobby people from Connecticut next door. Highly recommended.

    Miss M. has fun in P-town

    When you get tired of sitting on the beach and lounging around, the exciting nightlife, restaurants and shopping of Provincetown are only a 10 minute drive away. As you may know, P-town is a "colorful" city whose population mainly consists of gay and lesbian people and Portugese fishermen. They have a great collection of shops, art galleries, restaurants, museums, beaches, bars, and night clubs--many of which offer very entertaining drag shows! You can also come to P-town and charter a fishing boat for the day or take a whale watch. It's just a great place to spend a day or night.

    Our Faithful Vessel

    As unseaworthy as my friends and I may be, we are not to be deterred in our annual pilgramage to the sea in my friend Jay's trusty kayak. Throughout the week of our stay in N. Truro, we unwisely join several other (more seasoned) kayakers on the Bay, paddling around in circles until someone comes by and gives us shove in the right direction. Kayaking is a load of fun though, and definately a great thing to do here!

  • Trying to Hit Adults with Bubbles

    Miss M and the Bubble Maker

    This one is really for the kids. For some reason they seem to really enjoy trying to hit us adults with bubbles (as well as with sand and the occasional squirt gun) while we are trying to read the Globe. They are undeterred from this task even after being yelled and hollered at repeatedly. This not only proves that their attention spans are much longer than they let on, but that it must be a whole lot of fun, too.

  • Checking Out Things that Grow in the Sand

    Something Growing in the Sand

    After 5 or 6 cocktails there are few things more fascinating than checking out things that grow in the sand. Over the years I have checked out quite a number of plants, all of which have been quite nice with the exception of the time I got poison ivy back in '91.

    Cape Cod Lighthouse AKA Highland Light

    highland light

    The Cape Cod Lighthouse is worth a visit any time of day, but it was just beautiful at sunrise. It's located on the Atlantic side onf the Cape Cod National Seashore. Beyond the light itself, is a walkway that will lead you to the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea.
    The tours are only open from May to October. You can climb the tower for a small fee.

    Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod

    Truro Vineyards Wine and Gift Shop

    I think this is the only winery on Cape Cod. It is nestled in an attractive location and is fun to visit. The shop is inside a restored 1830's farmhouse. Here their wine, along with an assortment of gifts, is sold. Being in operation only since 1992, Truro Vineyards is a relative newcomer to the world of wine.

    Tastings are offered throughout the day. They charge a small fee, but you can keep the glass as a souvenir. The tastings occur behind the 1830's farmhouse with the vineyards just beyond. They seat you at tables for the event. The various wines are explained to the group as samples are poured for tasting. They pour both reds and whites. The wines were not bad, and we bought a couple of bottles to accompany us for later in our trip. They did have some wine that was in a pretty cool looking blue bottle.

    We found our visit to Truro Vineyards enjoyable. It is open from April to December for tastings and wine sales.

    Highland Light

    Highland Light is also known as Cape Cod Light. The 1857 lighthouse was moved inland to save it from the wrath of the ocean. With good weather, the light can be seen 20 miles out to see. You can go up to the top of the lighthouse for a fee. But you can walk around the grounds fro free. They have a gift shop. Highland Light is also a great spot just to look at the ocean and shoreline.
