People who live in Falmouth appreciate its very strong sense of community. Neighbors watch out for each other.
With a shopping center on Route 1 just off 295, residents don’t have to go far for typical shopping trips; yet not far beyond the small commercial zone lie some of Maine’s most desirable neighborhoods. Falmouth Foreside, though within the town of Falmouth, is an entity unto itself lying directly on the shore but housing a vibrant year-round population. Falmouth’s Town Landing cradles the largest recreational anchorage and mooring field north of Marblehead as well as a superb public beach.
Falmouth citizens value their open space, evident in over two dozen parks and public spaces. Mackworth Island State Park, with over fourteen miles of trails, is accessible by causeway. While not found in every park or public space, within the confines of Falmouth one can hike, mountain bike, snowshoe, cross-country ski, hunt, horseback ride, and snowmobile. The Falmouth school system is consistently rated among the best schools in Maine.
This community's easy access to Portland via 295 makes it an ideal choice for those looking for proximity to a city with community values.
