Or stop by Pie in the Sky for a coffee and their amazing homemade baked-good chocolate cookies.
✔ Another place that you can visit is the home of the sector commander. Well, it’s not actually a house, but close to a house. Did I confuse you? The Nobska Lighthouse belongs to the Coast Guard.

✔ Since we had explored the bay side, how about the one of the most beautiful beaches on the Cape? Yes, say hello to Old Silver Beach. This actually gives you the impression that you are in Europe. The best time to see the nicest view of the beach is early morning and also really early if you want to get a spot on the beach. No worries, the beach has clean bathrooms and a snack bar you can munch in.
After the beach, take a little walk over to the Sea Crest Hotel and go to Red’s, grab their famous dish chowder, but make sure to have a cold beverage with it. The place will also give you a gorgeous view of the sunset. You can also reconsider to visit the Sea Crest during winter, since it’s also a great place to see by then.
✔ Let’s now walk to the main street. What’s in here are cute shops, restaurants. And if you have little folks with you, let them play at the science playground at Mullen Hall Elementary. Next to the playground is a carousel that anyone can go onto. What are the other things you can do at main street? Bakeshops! Yes, they’re full of pastry shops.

✔ For the masculine side, there are few BBCS around the Cape. When you say BBC it stands for British Beer Company. One branch is located in Falmouth, which is actually one of the favorite branches of customers since its location is right across the street from the beach.
