I have always loved Cape Cod and have frequently visited the lower and outer cape towns so many times over the years. It was not until a few years ago that I really discovered Falmouth. Oh sure I have been to Woods Hole to take the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard but never really stayed or ventured out in town. We were able to spend an overnight at The Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth (they were kind enough to extend the media rate) during April school vacation week and what a trip! As soon as we checked in and got to our ocean front room we were relaxed and the beach is RIGHT there! In fact if you stay in an ocean front room your kids can be on the beach and you can sit on your deck to watch them just feet away.
This waterfront resort is set on Old Silver Beach and is less than seven miles from Main Street Falmouth shopping and dining. The amenities are wonderful and include a fitness center, an indoor and outdoor pool, and a poolside bar. We were treated to lunch at Red’s and with the views of the ocean my kids said it felt like we were eating lunch on a ship! The sunset is stunning from this hotel and we highly recommend staying for April school vacation week. In fact I have never seen the water that clear and blue on the cape before – a very special location indeed! This resort offers group activities, movie nights and especially for the kids the KANGAROO CLUB! Learn more about all the fun here.
The resort also has a conference center and is the perfect location for a wedding!
The weather was almost 70 degrees the day we were there and it felt like summer. We will have to go back to check out the resort in the summer as the kids really wanted to experience the outdoor pool!
