April and May in Falmouth are the official kick off to our warm weather season. Join us for a long weekend as we celebrate spring with something for everyone.

Arrive in time for Spohr Gardens’ annual Daffodil Days event and you won’t be disappointed. This incredible six-acre garden sits on Oyster Pond and while open year round, the last two Saturdays in April promise thousands upon thousands of daffodils! Daffodil Days has been a tradition at the gardens since 2004, and in the years since, the town has banded together to plant daffodils all over Falmouth. Come for a long weekend and embark on a daffodil tour.

Spohr Gardens is walkable (or kayak/canoe-able) from the B&B’s in Falmouth, and admission is free while donations are appreciated.

From voting on your favorite May basket, to retail sales and dining specials, Falmouth Village Blooming (May 1st – 10th) can’t be missed. The first weekend will include a kids spring hat weekend, and an estate walk on the 3rd at Highfield Hall. There’s a lot going on May 5th; celebrate Cinco De Mayo with Anejo’s (the best Mexican food in town) who will be closing the street next to their restaurant and serving $5 burritos and margaritas with music to match. There’s also a May garden basket design workshop with Anna Holmes on the 5th from 6-8pm. On May 8th, The Locket Project sponsored by View Photography will exhibit “Calling All Heros”, a series of photos depicting special relationships between young boys and the men in their lives. There will be a beautiful story time on May 9th at Eight Cousins Book Store. Come enjoy a reading of Guess How Much I Love You and take photos with Little Nut Brown Hare.

Falmouth Village Blooming will go out with a bang on May 10th with the most incredible garden tour. The Falmouth B&B Association will open their gardens for tours and mini-workshops. Visit Captain’s Manor Inn to learn how cattle troughs are quickly becoming the next big trend in gardening. Saunter over to Palmer House Inn to learn to plant successful container gardens (refreshments provided). Bring the kids to Woods Hole Passage to participate in a child centered garden project and be sure to stop by Woods Hole Inn and Bailey’s by the Sea to enjoy tea and cookies on the porch.

However you like to celebrate spring, Falmouth has you covered!

C Salt Wine Bar & Grill opened at 75 Davis Straits Road in Falmouth, in 2013 during the height of the summer season. C Salt is not the typical Cape Cod eatery. The food is up scale, elegantly prepared and plated, but the atmosphere is casual. Diners can go there in sandals and jeans if they like, a dress code we affectionately call “Cape Cod Casual”. The prices are moderate and the food is fresh and the presentation, up scale. Jon Phillips, the executive chef/owner describes the food as, Modern American with Asian and French influences.

Sesame Seared Salmon

Nobska&moonThe holidays truly are the most wonderful time of the year in Falmouth, Cape Cod.  Our village main street and its numerous shops, restaurants and bed and breakfast inns, are decked out in full holiday splendor.  Much of the activity centers around  the annual Holidays-by-the-Sea weekend December 5-7.  The weekend kicks off with caroling at Nobska Lighthouse on Friday evening.  Santa’s arrival by boat at the Falmouth harbor is always a delight as is the lighting of the Village Green on Saturday evening.  The biggest event of the weekend takes place on Sunday as the biggest Christmas parade in southeastern Massachusetts kicks off at noon.  There is something for everyone in this beautiful seaside village. We invite you to celebrate the holiday season in Falmouth, our traditional New England town.

Woods Hole start lineAugust is all about the Falmouth Road Race here in Falmouth, MA on Cape Cod.  This race started over 40 years ago as a bar bet between a popular bartender and a few pals, and has grown into one of the most important summer races in the US.

This year there were about 11,000 entries including elite runners from all over the world that use the 7 mile course to qualify for the New York Marathon and other races.  With significant prize money on the table and one of the most beautiful courses in America, what’s not to like about the Falmouth Road Race?

Falmouth comes together the day of the race with the course lined with spectators.  The seven mile course starts in Woods Hole at the drawbridge and goes past Nobska Lighthouse, along Surf Drive, past Falmouth Harbor ending in Falmouth Heights near the British Beer Company, a popular local watering hole (and birthplace of the race so many moons ago).

This year was sunny but not too hot and the race went off without a hitch.  Planning to come next year either as a runner or spectator?  Book your B&B now, as the popularity of this weekend is supreme.

Falmouth Mass on Cape CodArtist Lance Shinkle, a long time Falmouth Mass resident, carved and painted the incredible horses for this carousel which also is covered with beautiful paintings of favorite Falmouth activities like jumping of the Menahaunt Bridge, walking the Knob and Nobska Lighthouse.

Each horse is assembled like a butcher block with white pine from the Cataumet Sawmill, then sculpted first with a chain saw, then chisels and finally sandpaper.  Mr. Shinkle carved and hand-painted this incredible collection over 20 years ago.  What a life’s work!   This is the first summer it has been up and running as a real carousel in Falmouth.

Located right near Falmouth’s charming Main Street in front of the Mullen Hall School, the Carousel of Light offers fun for all ages in the summertime.  The Carousel will be closed up for the season in late August so hurry over for your late summer ride.  Hopefully, the Carousel will find a more permanent location in Falmouth in the near future!

Falmouth MAWood Neck Beach is one of many public beaches in Falmouth Mass,
with parking for residents and visitors behind the bluff, lifeguards during main beach hours in summer and public bathrooms.  There is also an ice cream truck that regularly visits Wood Neck Beach with water, snacks and of course ice cream.

Wood Neck is especially popular with families because it sits on the headland of a large and interesting marsh.  Kids can wade back along the sandy shore and see all sorts of sea life — crabs, spawning fish, shore birds and more.  In addition, Wood Neck has a tidal current that washed in and out of the marsh via a river-like opening.  The water that comes out of the marsh is especially warm and makes for fun swimming with the rip tide.

Wood Neck is the first in a string of beaches that extend north from here towards Old Silver Beach, all facing Buzzards Bay.  In the distance on a clear day you can see the bridge over the Cape Cod canal, and the tankers headed along the southern Massachusetts coast (about 12 miles away) chugging towards the canal.  The steady southwesterly breeze blows across this beach, making it wonderfully cool most summer days.

When you visit Falmouth, venture off the beaten path and check out Wood Neck Beach.  Day passes to the parking lot are often on offer from your friendly B&B owner, or are available from the Town Beach office at Surf Drive for $10 per day.

Wood Neck is located off Sippewissett Road in West Falmouth, about a mile from Main Street Falmouth.  It is in a residential neighborhood and the road to it is called Wood Neck Road, but other than that there is no signage.

Wood Neck is especially popular with families because it sits on the headland of a large and interesting marsh.  Kids can wade back along the sandy shore and see all sorts of sea life — crabs, spawning fish, shore birds and more.  In addition, Wood Neck has a tidal current that washed in and out of the marsh via a river-like opening.  The water that comes out of the marsh is especially warm and makes for fun swimming with the rip tide.

Wood Neck is the first in a string of beaches that extend north from here towards Old Silver Beach, all facing Buzzards Bay.  In the distance on a clear day you can see the bridge over the Cape Cod canal, and the tankers headed along the southern Massachusetts coast (about 12 miles away) chugging towards the canal.  The steady southwesterly breeze blows across this beach, making it wonderfully cool most summer days.

When you visit Falmouth, venture off the beaten path and check out Wood Neck Beach.  Day passes to the parking lot are often on offer from your friendly B&B owner, or are available from the Town Beach office at Surf Drive for $10 per day.

Wood Neck is located off Sippewissett Road in West Falmouth, about a mile from Main Street Falmouth.  It is in a residential neighborhood and the road to it is called Wood Neck Road, but other than that there is no signage to this well kept secret.

history on Cape CodThe Woods Hole Historical Museum is a great summer destination if you are interested in Cape Cod history.  This lovely small house is perched right on Little Harbor in Woods Hole so you can enjoy their exhibits as well as the cool ocean breeze on a sunny summer day.

This summer, there are two temporary exhibits — one on the history of business in Woods Hole replete with photos and stories, and the other the work of illustrator James Prosek who sketches ocean fish for publication like a modern day Audubon.  His many books are also available for viewing at the museum, and you will marvel at the accuracy and beauty of his intricate drawings.

Out behind the museum is a barn filled with antique boats and memorabilia about wooden boats with open doors to the breeze and a charming row of signal flags draped across the front door.

On Saturday July 19th at 10 am, the Woods Hole Historical Museum holds their annual auction.  This is a great event, filled with locals and visitors who come for the bargains and the great good humor of auctioneer Phil Stanton.  They only offer this auction every other year, and it raises money for the Museum.

The Woods Hole Historical Museum is located at 579 Woods Hole Road in Woods Hole (a village of the town of Falmouth) on Cape Cod.
