Just over 100 miles from Boston is the summer vacation town of Truro, Massachusetts. Over half of this town is part of the Cape Cod National Seaside, and the local scenery is so beautiful you'll never tire of looking at it or exploring it with Fido by your side. Only about 2,000 people live in Truro year-round, but in the summer months, the area is flooded with vacationers who come to enjoy the beaches, the weather, and of course, the excellent local seafood.
One of the best spots in Truro for enjoying that local seafood is at Cap Tip. It also operates as a fish market, but Cap Tip Seafood also serves up dishes like lobster rolls or hot clam chowder. They also have a handful of dog-friendly tables outside, so you don't have to leave your pet at home to experience some of the best seafood in Massachusetts. Truro itself doesn't have any veterinary offices, but just a few minutes of driving will get you and your pet to one of several that are in the surrounding area. Although this town is busy and popular in the summer, there are plenty of things to do all year in Truro with your dog.
West Truro is a stunning part of the town that is home to Corn Hill Beach. This relaxed, family-friendly beach also welcomes leashed dogs so your whole family can enjoy some time together. Corn Hill Beach is not only known for being peaceful, but it is also known for being very clean and one of the best spots in coastal Massachusetts for watching sunsets. The waves are gentle, and the sand is soft here so both children and dogs can walk and play safely on the beach. During the summer, dogs are welcome before 9 AM or after 6 PM, but during the off-season, any time of day works to bring your dog here.
North Truro is a peaceful area popular with young families as well as families with pets. In North Truro, you'll find the lovely Head of the Meadow Beach. During the summer, this beach is patrolled by lifeguards, which families with young children especially appreciate. During the busy summer season, your dog is welcome to join you at this beach before 9 AM or after 6 PM as long as they are on a leash. When it is less busy in the off-season months, your dog is welcome at Head of the Meadow Beach during any time of the day, but they still must be on a leash.
A 45-minute drive from Truro to South Dennis, Massachusetts takes you the Crowes Reservation Beach where your on-leash dog is allowed to join you from September to Memorial Day. During the summer, there are nesting birds in the area, so dogs are not permitted in order to keep these nesting birds safe. This big beach is surrounded by several wooded walking paths, and visitors to Crowes Reservation Beach note how friendly both the people and the pets are here. If you stay until the end of the day when the tide is low, you'll be able to walk all the way out, and you'll spot several people collecting oysters along the way.
The Cape Cod National shoreline is designated as a National Park, and a 17-minute drive from Truro to Provincetown, Massachusetts will get you to the Herring Cove portion. This serene beach is found at the end of Cape Cod, and it is popular with both locals and tourists who are looking to have a great beach day. Despite its popularity, the beach always feels peaceful. Your dog can accompany you to the beach if he's on a leash. There are restrooms, food, drinks, showers, and plenty of parking along Herring Cove, which makes it a convenient place to spend a day with your dog.
Marconi Beach is a dog-friendly beach found 15 minutes away from Truro in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Marconi Beach is known for its spectacular sand dunes, as well as being a pawsome place to bring your dog for some exercise. There is also an observational platform where you can take in the sights of the ocean and the bay. There is also a walking trail right nearby that features countless varieties of vegetation and plenty of opportunities to explore with your dog. There is a steep cliff behind the beach that is a great place to spot humpback whales, surfers, and swimmers from.
