Welcome to Falmouth on Cape Cod
Cape Cod is a 100-mile peninsula of sparkling sea and grassy dunes separated from the mainland by the Cape Cod Canal. It’s often said that Cape Cod isn’t a place – it’s a state of mind. Once you “cross the bridge,” whether you it’s the Bourne or the Sagamore, you’re now officially “on Cape time” where life moves at a more relaxed pace. Days are punctuated by the golden suns rising over Vineyard Sound and the pink ones setting over Buzzards Bay.
Although located on the Upper Cape, Falmouth is the most southerly town on Cape Cod, with beaches bordering both Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound, and the warmest swimming waters in the area. Falmouth boasts a vibrant year-round population of 35,000 and a healthy shoulder season of tourism that attracts visitors all year long. Located just an hour and a half from Boston, Falmouth is also known as the primary departure point for ferries to the island of Martha’s Vineyard, which lies just three miles off the coast.
