Shop, dine, be pampered, or immerse yourself in history – all without leaving Main Street!

The shops on Main Street in Falmouth Village truly have it all. Have a dinner party to attend and need the perfect hostess gift? Shops like Homespun Gardens and Twigs offer an array of unique items from tableware to jewelry. Perhaps you’re in the market for an updated wardrobe? Maxwell & Co. carries a truly inspired collection of men’s and women’s clothing and each item purchased can be tailored on premises free of charge – they make shopping an artful experience. Main Street is also home to one of Cape Cod’s icons – The Black Dog which is the perfect spot to stop for gifts for those at home. It’s not a Cape Cod vacation without a black dog sweatshirt! Commemorate your vacation with a beautiful piece from Falmouth Jewelry Shop, a family owned and operated business that will help you find the perfect piece.

Dining is an event in itself on Main Street and if you want to try them all, you need to start early! After a delicious breakfast at your B&B, we suggest a light mid morning snack of freshly baked croissants and espresso at The Boulangerie Patisserie, Falmouth’s very own Parisian bakery. After you’ve shopped up an appetite, take a trip south of the border (but only across the street) for lunch and a margarita at Anejo’s Mexican Bistro and Tequila Bar  where you’ll experience incredibly authentic fare. If you’re in the mood for fine dining for dinner, we suggest La Osteria La Civetta for amazing hospitality and Italian food made with the freshest local ingredients. If you crave live music and cold beer, Liam Maguire’s Irish Pub has what you need featuring tons of great craft brews on tap and delicious pub style dishes.

As you saunter down Main Street between shopping and snacking, feel free to stop into Belezza, a full service salon and medspa for a soothing massage, luxurious pedicure, or a reinvigorating new hair style. You’ll leave relaxed, reenergized, and ready to continue your day on Main Street. Want to learn a little more about the amazing history of Falmouth? Continue onto Palmer Avenue and visit Falmouth Museums on the Green for a walking tour of the town, or catch a lecture in the beautiful cultural center.

Home to so many businesses unique to Falmouth, ample parking in the lots surrounding, and tons to do. Spend a day discovering all Main Street has to offer!

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.

Fall is an amazing time here in Falmouth. What we love about Cape Cod in the summer becomes somehow more magical in the fall.

 

 

 

The weather can be warm one day and then nipping at our noses the next.

Sudden snow makes a single November day of beauty

The trees are bright with color and the skies are beyond blue.

There is so much beauty in nature it’s time to stop and take a look at the changing lands around us.
