Of all Falmouth's beaches, none is finer than Old Silver Beach. This long, sandy stretch of beach attracts scores of college students, families and day-trippers from the city. A rock jetty, sandbars and tidal pools provide lots of fun diversions for kids. The parking lot often fills up on hot days, so plan on getting there early. Facilities include changing rooms and a snack bar. Parking costs $20 in summer.
