Enjoy the Small Town Feel in Falmouth
Falmouth’s Historic District gives you a glimpse into a bygone era. While walking along its sidewalks bordered by immaculate white picket fences, you might reasonably expect to encounter Thornton Wilder or Emily Dickinson. A five minute walk brings you past the Village Green and the Congregational Church to our bustling downtown lined with tempting restaurants, upscale boutiques, spas that spoil you, bakeries and confectioners with more pastries, chocolate, candy and ice cream than any one person can be expected to handle!
From the historic downtown area you can continue your walk heading due south and travel through a charming residential neighborhood of traditional Cape Cod homes set among flowering shrubs and picket fences. Within ten minutes, you will arrive at beautiful Surf Drive Beach, with its warm summer ocean waters, scenic vistas, glorious sunsets and gentle waves.
Aside from shopping and eating, Falmouth offers plenty of entertainment in season. There’s theatre, opera, golf, bike riding, yachting, deep sea fishing, museums and of course, ferry boat rides to Martha’s Vineyard, a deservedly favorite destination of generations of visitors, poets, authors, movie stars, presidents and international royalty.
During the fall, winter and early spring seasons, you will find an array of planned events and holiday-related activities. October’s Jazz-Tober, Halloween with its spooktastic Village of Scarecrows, Holidays by the Sea with its music stroll, parade and festively decorated and lit Village Green, Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s celebrations bring visitors to Falmouth year after year.
In addition to town-sponsored events, Palmer House Inn has a calendar of its own events for you through the year and has an e-newsletter to keep you posted on upcoming activities weekends. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the most up to date information.
