Biking Along the Shining Sea

On a sunny Cape Cod day, nothing beats riding a bike while overlooking long stretches of beaches and cranberry bogs. The “Shining Sea Bikeway,” was named after the song “America the Beautiful” written by Falmouth native – Katharine Lee Bates. The name not only signifies a historical importance, but also reflects the beautiful beach views of this distinctive path. The bike path extends along what was an old train route – originally running through Buzzards Bay, North and West Falmouth, Woods Hole and ending at the Falmouth Station.  While it crosses a few roads, for the most part this right […]

Every Tuesday evening, starting in July, Quicks Hole transforms into a kid sized movie theater.

It’s great to see the camaraderie of kids as they slowly […]

The trolley brings passengers to and from downtown Falmouth and Woods Hole, and while there are stops, the trolley will pick you up anywhere along the route.  The trolley also connects to the actual bus route that runs all throughout Falmouth, and beyond. Riding on the open-air trolley is a unique experience. With a distinctive street-car look, the trolley is a fun ride – especially if you stand in the caboose and face backwards. The Trolley starts at the Walmart parking lot and […]
