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’s Fourth of July festivities are unlike any other. The day will begin with a recitation of the Declaration of Independence outside the bookstore, and end with what Travel and Leisure Magazine named one of the top ten fireworks displays in the country. From start to finish, July 4th is one of the best days to be in Falmouth.

Embrace your patriotic side and don your flag themed garments at the bike and carriage parade which begins at 10am at the village green. In addition to outfits, participants are invited to deck out their bike, wagon, scooter, or carriage in red white and blue and follow Uncle Sam down Main Street. The parade culminates at Peg Noonan Park where awards are given to parade participants. Main Street has plenty of al fresco dining so you can also opt to watch the parade from the comfort of a cocktail.

When dusk falls, the Falmouth skyline will explode with color in a truly impressive fireworks display. More than 50,000 people will travel to Falmouth to watch the show, which originates from Falmouth Heights Beach but can be seen throughout the town. The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate and honor our country and what better place than Massachusetts – the place where it all began.

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.

A favorite day trip when visiting Falmouth is to hop on a bike and ride to Woods Hole.  About three miles on the Shining Sea Bike Path (a rail-trail conversion), you will pass salt marshes, Hole, there is much to see and explore.  Check out the free aquarium where they feed the seals daily at 11 am and 4 pm.  An epicenter of scientific discovery, you can also get a taste of what it’s all about at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Discovery Center and learn more about their undersea exploration of the Titanic.

Follow James Cameron (a frequent visitor to the science community here) and look at the many boats dotting the harbor in charming “Eel Pond.”  If you are lucky, the drawbridge will go up and down at least once during your visit.

There are many waterfront dining options in Woods Hole, including fresh roasted coffee and baked goods at Pie in the Sky, fried clams and lobster at the Landfall, oysters and other seafood at Shuckers, ice cream cones and penny candy and so much more.  Great Harbor Woods Hole Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Woods Hole MA Woods Hole, charming Cape Cod village Phusion restaurant in Woods Hole MA porches in Woods Hole penny candy store in Woods Hole, MA free street music in Woods Hole on Cape Cod sunset over the Eel Pond in Woods Hole on Cape Cod festive bikes in Woods Hole shopping in Woods Hole on Cape Cod

There is a true feeling of Christmas in the air here in Falmouth as The Village is adorned in festive array with our very own greens: holly, boxwoods, cedar, pines/cones and garlands of cranberries.  True magic occurred on Sat. evening when the Village Green was lit where there was much ‘oohing and ahing’ heard from happy onlookers and, of course, lots of happy children when Santa arrived safe and sound!!

The Falmouth Bed & Breakfast Association extends to all much happiness and joy as we enter into the most peaceful of seasons.

 
Just had to capture the elegant holiday sunset that officially ushered in winter here in Falmouth Village.  Our stores are bustling with post Christmas shoppers having a wonderful time bargain hunting.  As you stroll down festive Main Street, the aroma emanating from our Class A restaurants is the perfect invitation to just – saunter in!!
