You can feel the rest of the world fall away as you drive along the old, winding roads that lead to the parking lot at Corn Hill Beach in Truro. Nose your car into the beach plums and rosa rugosa in the parking lot and head for the long, narrow beach. Watch boats moving through the harbor as you wade in the shallow, calm waters (warm by New England standards). Rivulets trickling from inland waterways are fun to explore as well.
Lovely cliff-side houses and a picture-postcard view of Provincetown round out this sweet intersection of history and nature.
The name Corn Hill refers to the spot where the Pilgrims found a stash of corn left by the Native Americans. The find was instrumental in their ability to weather their first, tough winter in their new home country.
Portable toilets are the only facilities here.
