Let’s not forget the rich arts and cultural heritage on Cape Cod providing activities from orchestras and opera to galleries, museums and performing arts. When describing a location on Cape Cod, locals refer to four distinct regions: the Upper Cape is the region located closest to the mainland, the Mid Cape is located in the middle as you move east. Next comes the Lower Cape, located at the elbow of the arm and then as you progress further out into the Atlantic toward the tip of Cape Cod you have the Outer Cape.

Dennis Another of Cape Cod’s historic treasures, Dennis offers a bit of everything for everyone. Along its north side, Dennis exudes historic charm, from living history museums such as the Josiah Dennis Manse to a landscape that meanders along Route 6A dotted with antique shops, historic homes and B&Bs. Its southern coastline features one of Cape Cod’s most visited sandy shores, West Dennis Beach, punctuated by cottage colonies and salt-air breezes as well as the lovely estates that reside along the fingers of Bass River, with deep water access to Nantucket Sound.

Truro Truro is the smallest and least populated town on Cape Cod. Home to dramatic sandy cliffs from Atlantic to Bay, Truro is unsurpassed in its natural beauty. Built in 1797, Highland Lighthouse, located on a cliff 183 feet above sea level, is the oldest lighthouse on Cape Cod. Truro resides close enough to Provincetown to enjoy its activities, but far enough removed to bask in peaceful seclusion.
