With eight delightful villages and seven historic districts, Falmouth, Cape Cod is small enough to fill your eye yet big enough to fill your heart.
In Falmouth, you don’t have to choose; you can bask on any number of sun-drenched beaches and then enjoy a leisurely stroll along our picture-perfect Main Street.
Discover fine gift and clothing boutiques, art galleries, specialty stores and restaurants for both fine and casual dining. Pass white picket fences, pause, step into the past, and take in the historic Village Green and stately church steeples. Visit a farm in Hatchville or explore the world of ecology and marine science in Woods Hole.
Warmed by the Gulf Stream, Falmouth’s mild waters make swimming, fishing and windsurfing memorable pastimes well into autumn. Bury your toes in warm sand and enjoy the salty essence of Falmouth’s 10 public beaches and 68 miles of winding coastline, along Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay. Bike the 10.7 mile-long Shining Sea Bikeway where you can cycle or stroll alongside the ocean, through salt marshes and across a working cranberry bog. Discover the cultural side of Falmouth through summer stock light opera, small-town band concerts overlooking Falmouth harbor, cutting-edge theater productions, independent films at our Annual Woods Hole Film Festival, our historic museums, the Falmouth Art Center and many locally produced arts and entertainment events.
Falmouth is an ideal base from which to explore all of Cape Cod, Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. From here, it is a short drive to Route 6A, the legendary Old King’s Highway, the largest designated historic district in the nation. Plymouth, Newport, New Bedford and the cosmopolitan cities of Boston and Providence are all a short drive away.
