We're spending a few days in Boston then planning to drive to Cape Cod for four nights before driving on again.

I like the sound of the Crows Nest Resort in Truro, but had a few questions.

Is truro a good base? We want somewhere quiet and right on the ocean and not too touristy.

Also, how long realistically would it take to drive to Truro from Boston? We'd be driving on a Monday morning in July (leaving around 11am...)

Driving to Truro from Boston on a Monday afternoon should be no problem at all. Maybe a 2-2.5 hour drive or so. While Truro is not exactly central for Cape Cod, I don't think there's anything wrong with using it for a base of operations.

I spent a few days there last summer and enjoyed that area. It was quiet and I felt it was less touristy. And not too far from Provincetown if you are looking for some fun.

I just answered you on the Truro forum ;)


I love it because it IS a little further out and less congested than the the areas closer to the bridges.
