Top Ten Staff Picks for Things to do When Visiting Falmouth

1.) We have many libraries in town! The main library at 300 Main Street, branches in East or North Falmouth, the West Falmouth Library, the Woods Hole Library or the MBLWHOI Scientific Library.

2.) Spohr Gardens (and bring along a copy of Elizabeth Saito’s book My Spohr Gardens.)

3.) Take the WHOOSH Trolley to Woods Hole and visit the Woods Hole Science Aquarium.

4.) The Knob. With magnificent views of Buzzards Bay and Quissett Harbor, The Knob is a treasure. (or any of the other 300 Committee properties)

5.) Falmouth Museums on the Green. In particular don’t miss the garden, which includes a white gazebo for shade or a place to eat your lunch.

6.) Pick fruit and vegetables at Coonamessett Farm (or attend one of their Wednesday & Friday night buffets).

7.) Bourne Farm. Located on over 49 acres of fields, trails and woodlands that overlook Crocker Pond in West Falmouth. One of the pieces of property owned by the Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries, Inc.

8.) Historic Highfield Hall and Gardens and Beebe Woods.

9.) Take a late swim at Old Silver Beach and have pizza delivered for a sunset dinner.

10.) Wednesday night movies outside at Peg Noonan Park or Thursday night Falmouth Town Band concerts on Scranton Avenue.
