At a glance
Historic Falmouth offers 68 miles of coastline, the largest on the Cape,
which makes it the consummate place for sailors and beach lovers. The
town has three public marinas, two yacht clubs, one boatyard and a
sailing school, along with various private marine facilities. Its southwest
orientation makes for stunning sunsets and glorious late-afternoon sailing.
With eight quaint villages, and scarcely an off-season, Falmouth also has a
robust downtown that supports a plethora of dining options, and an array
of stores and businesses, as well as museums and a collection of community
theaters. And nearby Bourne Bridge is a bonus for those traveling off Cape.

With approximately 33,000 year-round residents, Falmouth is known for
being a family-oriented town. There is no shortage of sports and recreation,
and the school system includes several public and private institutions from
pre-kindergarten through high school. Ten public beaches (and assorted
private ones), along with numerous inlets and freshwater ponds and lakes,
beckon residents and visitors alike to explore the waterways by foot or
boat. For a more grounded activity, the 10.7 mile, gentle Shining Beach
Bikeway winds south from North Falmouth to Woods Hole, passing
through woodlands, marsh, cranberry bogs and along Falmouth’s sparkly
coastline. Its paved pathway offers an easy ride or walk.
