Cape Cod - Falmouth MA
Falmouth Cape Cod Massachusetts
Incorporated in 1686, Falmouth, Massachusetts is a large town (by Cape Cod standards) that is made up of eight small villages: Falmouth Center, East Falmouth, West Falmouth, North Falmouth, Teaticket, Waquoit, Hatchville, and Woods Hole. Falmouth juts out into the water, with Vineyard Sound on one side and Buzzards Bay on the other. Its nine beaches on the Bay and Sound, therefore, tend to be calmer and warmer than the ocean beaches further out on the Cape.
Outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed when visiting this Upper
Cape town. Kayakers will find a nice paddle on Waquoit Bay (part of the
Waquoit National Estuarine Research Reserve), including a stop-over on
Washburn Island, a nature preserve with hiking trails, quiet beaches,
and campsites. Cyclists will enjoy the scenic Shining Sea Bikeway, which
follows the coast from Falmouth to Woods Hole. Windsurfing is popular
at Falmouth’s Old Silver Beach due to ideal conditions. The town
is also home to the College Light Opera Company, that runs a summer repertory
season, and is the site of the Barnstable County Fair in July. Also not
to be missed are the stunning views from the historic Nobska Lighthouse,
as well as the many attractions in the village of Woods Hole.
