Falmouth, Cape Cod

I've written about Cape Cod before and how much I love it, but this post is going to be a little more specific on Falmouth.

Where to stay?
Falmouth is where we stay when we go to the Cape. We normally stay with friends but before now we have booked this house. It is slightly out of town but was perfect for us! There are quite a few hotels to choose from as well, if you don't fancy booking a house.

We were lucky because our friends have access to a private beach - some rental properties also come with this as an option. If you want to visit a beach with a bit more going on then I would recommend Falmouth Heights. It is busier but it's got every thing you need (sea, sand and snowcones!).

Food and Drink
You HAVE to go to Betsy's Diner. I talked about Betsy's in my previous post about Cape Cod. It's a 1950s diner that does fantastic breakfasts. It feels like you're on the set of Grease.

The British Beer Company is situated directly across from Falmouth Heights beach. I've eaten there a couple of times, including this summer. I would recommend the clam chowder!

Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium has so many flavours of ice creams and sweets. Warning: their portions are BIG - which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

What to do?
Visit Main Street. There are lots of shops from Lilly Pulitzer to bella of Cape Cod (great for souvenirs).

We visited Ryan Family Amusements. I don't think I've ever been to an Arcade in England but we used to go here when we visited as children. It was really fun to go back - whoever knew 'Plinko' could be so stressful?

I always like to stop at Eight Cousins book shop if I get the chance. It's got everything from children's books to information on Cape Cod to adults literature.

The Island Queen, the ferry service from Cape Cod to Oak's Bluff, Marthas's Vineyard, leaves from Falmouth. If you're stuck for what to do I would 100% recommend a day trip to Martha's Vineyard.

If you're looking for something to do one evening - or on a rainy day - there is Falmouth Cinema Pub. It's a restaurant in a cinema. This really should catch on in England!

If you can, try and spend an afternoon on the water. It would be worth every penny.
