    Falmouth is just one of Cape Cod’s treasures, located in the southwestern part of the Cape and encompasses several small villages with over 68 miles of coastline and 10 beaches.

    Stroll Falmouth Village’s tree-lined Main Street and you’ll find quaint shops filled with unique gifts, and delightful restaurants to suit every palate from ethnic restaurants to fresh fish and seafood dishes. From day spas to night life, Falmouth Village’s little corner of Cape Cod offers a variety of options to keep you occupied.

    Whether it be boating, windsurfing, fishing, jet skiing or simply soaking up the sun, there is something for everyone on the beaches of Falmouth. Make sure you head to Chapoquoit beach or Old Silver beach to catch one of the stunning sunsets.

    Hike or bike along many of the paths and trails through a natural setting of salt marsh, cranberry bogs, ponds and woodlands, to sandy shores and a busy working harbor offering scenic views of the coastline.

    Enjoy a round of golf at one of the five golfcourses, venture out and see the whales, or stroll through Falmouth’s farmers market for a more authentic local flair.

    There are distinctive historical districts within the town well worth visiting from Falmouth Village to North and West Falmouth and Waquoit historic district. Or hop on the ferry over to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket.
