Description
Falmouth was settled by Quakers in 1661 and was one of the first New England towns founded on the principles of religious tolerance. Originally a center for whaling, shipbuilding and agriculture, it later supported salt and glass industries. Falmouth is now a picturesque year-round beach resort centered on a historic village green. It also is a seasonal departure point for passenger-only ferries to Martha's Vineyard and connecting services to Nantucket Island.

Shopping
A number of specialty boutiques line Falmouth's Main Street, including Maxwell & Co. (200 Main St.), a high-end clothing store hawking men's and women's apparel. If you're looking for a $1,250 tweed sport coat or a chic python clutch by b.may, this is the place to go on the cape. Those with fashion-forward pip-squeaks in tow should look no further than Caline for Kids (149 Main St.), which stocks stylish gear for infants and kindergartners.
