Cape Cod has long been known for its focus on inclusiveness and respect for all cultures.  But until recently, vacationing on the Cape for parents and spouses of people with disabilities was uniquely challenging.  Most motels and rentals aren’t ideal for wheelchair use, and the Cape’s vaunted beaches and ponds can be an obstacle course rather than a haven for children and adults with mobility issues.

Thanks to the non-profit organization, SMILE Mass — Small Miracles in Life Exist — vacationing on the Cape just got a little easier.  North Truro is now home to a newly renovated beach-accessible condo.  Located at 544 Shore Road adjacent to the Beach Point and Noon’s Landing neighborhoods, the condo is a two-story, 1,100 sf oceanfront home.  Located

days cottages - truro ma

Known by some as the flower cottages, the Days’ Cottages in Truro are truly part of an iconic Cape community. A staple in the area since the early 1930s, the cottages offer perhaps some of the best and most immediate access to the sand and water.

Identical from the outside, the 22 cottages are right on the beach between North Truro and Provincetown. Standing all in a row, the cottages have no doubt been the subjects of countless photographs over the years, and they have quite a story to tell.

The Days’ Cottages are all painted white with green shutters, but they’re individually recognized by their names. The original owners named each after its own flower, giving some individualized identity to the Truro beach cottages.

After all, it’s hard

north truro air station - truro ma

Now the destination of curious visitors to Cape Cod, the North Truro Air Station maintains a unique history. Spurred by Russia testing its first atomic bomb, the North Truro Air Station was born in the early 1950s. Its location was utilized to monitor Soviet bombers, as one of the first radar listening stations.

Decommissioned, however, in the mid 1990s at the end of the Cold War, most of the land of the abandoned military site came under control of the National Park Service, and part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Still though, its old barracks, officers’ quarters, buildings and even a bowling alley remain. While the radar dishes are no longer there, the concrete pads where they used to stand remain in the ground.

north truro air force station

There is no doubt that Cape Cod is full of history, but part of the region’s history will soon be transformed into something new.  The Cape Cod National Seashore is working to develop more than 100 acres of land where the North Truro Air Force Station once stood.  The goal is to transform the land into the Highlands Center, an educational, arts and science center for the region.  To do so, the Seashore is using about $1 million in donated funds to demolish around a dozen contaminated and empty buildings, which still sit on the land.

The North Truro Air Force Station officially closed in 1985.  Over about the next decade, the majority of buildings sitting on the land, along with most of the land itself, were transferred over the National Park
