Located in the southwest corner of Cape Cod, Falmouth presents travelers with eight unique historic villages filled with character and charm. A picturesque New England town, Falmouth offers activities to suit every taste. The town is well known for its beautiful beaches, boasting the crystal waters of Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound warmed by Gulf Stream. You’ll find dozens of inlets awaiting your exploration by both foot or by boat.
Once you brush the sand from your toes, Falmouth has a host of activities to enjoy: public golf courses, quaint retail shops, restaurants and cafés, the 10.7-mile Shining Sea Bikeway, galleries & museums, theaters and walking trails. Annual Falmouth events include the Falmouth Road Race in August, Fourth of July Fireworks in July, and Falmouth Christmas Parade in December.
As you take the scenic route from historic downtown Falmouth along the shore to Woods Hole, you’ll pass Nobska Lighthouse, where you can stop for the perfect photo-op with magnificent views of Martha’s Vineyard and Vineyard Sound. Woods Hole is a salty, strolling village bustling with life in the summer. This traditional fishing village is also the hub of oceanic scientific research in the globe. Woods Hole is home to a world-renowned scientific community, including the Marine Biological Laboratory, NOAA National Marine Fisheries, Sea Education Association and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, as well as the oldest aquarium in the nation.
