They have decent bar food - I usually stick to burgers or steak tips. On weekends, they have Irish music. Located conveniently on Main Street.

This is walking distance from the cottage and the best view to get a drink. I think the food is average but the view is spectacular.
Soprano’s Casino by the Sea
This is walking distance from the cottage and the best view to get a drink. I think the food is average but the view is spectacular.
Not far from the cottage, the food is decent and they have outdoor seating and an outdoor bar overlooking Falmouth Harbor. The view is kind of blocked by the boats in the racks. They usually have entertainment on weekend nights.

Parks & Nature
This lighthouse overlooks the ocean on the Falmouth Road Race route. It is very scenic. I recommend packing a cooler and walking across the street from the lighthouse and enjoying some adult beverages on the rocks overlooking Martha's Vineyard. It isn't too far to take bikes to from the cottage either.

This beach is located 3 houses and across the street from the cottage. It is very popular. This is a great place to watch the 4th of July Fireworks and it also the finish line to the Falmouth Road Race.

Parking is tight (and probably $20 per day) at OSB but the beach is beautiful. You can also walk over to the SeaCrest and grab an adult beverage. There is a snack shack in the parking lot where you can grab hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken tenders, soda, water and ice cream.

I would say a little less popular that Falmouth Heights or Old Silver but still a beautiful beach. If you want to try a couple of different options out, I would check it out, especially if I was just at Old Silver and couldn't get a parking spot.

It is like two separate beaches. To the left, it is gorgeous at low tide. At high tide it is very rocky. To the right, there is a little inlet that kids like to ride their boogie boards on, catch crabs, minnows, etc. I think kids enjoy this one more than adults do.

This is a popular spot to walk out to and check out in Woods Hole.

You can ride a couple of miles from the cottage and hop on the bike path or there are a couple of places you can drive to and park and hop on. I love riding from Falmouth Center to Woods Hole. The views are gorgeous.

Getting Around
Want to go to take the ferry to Martha's Vineyard? You can walk here from the cottage. They allow bikes (for a fee) but you can't bring your car over. Who needs a car on MV when they rent mo-peds? They also have public buses on the island.

I haven't been, but one of our guests went and said it was fun. From their website: Cataumet Light Mini Golf: Ranked as one of the top five mini golf courses on Cape Cod. A completely redesigned mini-golf course that’s quiet and peaceful. Hear the rushing water cascading from our waterfalls, rivers and fountains while you test your skills thru eighteen holes of challenges in a fun background of boats, lobster traps and other nautical items. It’s competitive and great fun for the whole family. Hit the bell with coins at the paddle wheel pond and make a wish. Bumper Boats: YES! We have bumper boats too!! Race your boat in our bumper boat lake and get tangled up with other boaters. Watch out….there could be a collision!! Great outdoor summer fun for everyone!! Batting Cage: We have one of the only polyball (whiffle ball) cages in the area. The batting cage throws a softball size whiffle ball. The kids will love it! It’s challenging for adults too!! Insert a token and step up to the plate at Fenway Park. CRACK!! There goes a ball over the Green Monster! Home Run!! It’s a “Field of Dreams” right in the center of Cataumet. Speed Pitch: Are you a pitcher? Throw real baseballs at the target and the radar gun calculates your MPH speed. How fast is your Fastball? Kiddie Rides: We have an assortment of kiddie rides for the little ones.

I have never been, but when it isn't sunny, people ask for suggestions. This or the one in Cataumet might be worth a try.

Restaurants
My favorite in Falmouth. Make sure you call weeks in advance for a reservation. No reservation? Try getting one of the limited spots at the bar. It is a little pricey, but the food is excellent.

One of my breakfast favorites (here and Moonakis). It is nothing fancy but the food is good. They have a counter and a few tables. They also have loaves of Portuguese bread for sale. It is about a mile (a few minute bike ride) from the cottage to the restaurant that is behind the Dairy Queen. They are cash only.
