As a recreation and vacation land, Massachusetts has great stretches of seashore in the east and many lakes and streams in the wooded Berkshire Hills in the west. There are numerous state parks, forests, and beaches, and Cape Cod is the site of a national seashore from Eastham to Providence on the Lower Cape.
Falmouth is the Cape's second largest town, well know for its warm beaches, (an average of 70 degrees in the summer!) traditional main street village with eclectic boutiques, trendy restaurants and historic Village Green. Its population at 2010 Census was 31,352 with five golf courses, 9 harbors (some of Cape Cod's best), 12 miles of public beaches, and 68 miles of coastline (more than any other town on Cape Cod). Home of the world-renowned Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), we're a 30 minute Ferry ride from Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket, a 25 minute drive from Hyannis, 50 minutes from Provincetown (take a whale watching boat trip), an hour from Providence, Rhode Island and an hour and fifteen minutes from Boston or Newport R.I. Falmouth is a unique getaway, vacation place, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and leisure vacationers, off-the-beaten-path location and also a full-time, year round community.
