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.

Memorial Day is the perfect time of year to celebrate the winter’s end and what better place to do that than Falmouth, Cape Cod?
FHBOne of the things we love most about Falmouth is that it’s a peninsula which means we can enjoy the most beautiful beaches on both sides of town. Falmouth Heights Beach is very popular in the summer months; warm waters and soft sand attract tourists and townspeople alike. Despite how desirous it is, there is plenty of room for beach goers to play games or lounge in the sand since it’s such a long arc of coast.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite at the beach you can simply walk across the street to the British Beer Company to get some lunch. You can dine in and enjoy the ocean view, or grab some sandwiches to go and dine alfresco. As the sun is about to set, we suggest heading to the upstairs deck at Casino Wharf to grab a cocktail. The ocean views are completely unobstructed and unparalleled.

Metered parking is offered along the street (Grand Ave.) and daily parking is $10/day when you stay locally at a B&B. The beach offers bathrooms, concession, and showers. Walk along the beautiful jetties and enjoy the calm waves of the Nantucket Sound at one of Falmouth’s most beautiful open ocean oases.

 

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!
