Escorted Rail Tours Falmouth

A popular Cape Cod destination

With its attractive seafront and sweeping stretch of idyllic beaches, Falmouth is one of the most popular towns on the sandy peninsula of Cape Cod. The town was first settled by British colonists back in 1660, and was named by Bartholomew Gosnold after his home port of Falmouth in Cornwall. Falmouth was soon a successful farming and fishing community. With the exception of a brief skirmish in the War of 1812, this rural area stayed calm and largely very quiet for more than two centuries. This changed in 1872, when the railway arrived.

From this time onwards, Falmouth became a popular holiday destination for people from all over Massachusetts. Many of the grand-fronted, historic buildings that still line the main streets were built at about this time. With a rural feel and many examples of preserved architecture Falmouth has remained unspoilt, and today both Falmouth and the surrounding towns in Cape Cod are a joy to explore. Along with the beaches and parkland of Falmouth, there is the popular nearby town of Hyannis. Also a favoured holiday location, Hyannis has a strong connection to the Kennedys - the USA's most famous political dynasty - crowned by the JFK Memorial and Museum.
