Decent size town of around 40,000 residents. Located on upper part of the cape, borders the towns bourne to the north and mashpee to the east. A lot of beaches, with Old Silver being the most popular. Some decent bars, and plenty of stuff to do in the summer or the winter if your looking to keep busy. The racial make up of the town consists, of 73% white, non hispanic, 12% black african decent, 7% Native American Indian, 3% Hispanic, and 5% other. An unusual amount of crime that happens there, usually drug related, but is kept low key so tourist will keep coming. Tourist revinues are a huge part of local business revenues. The majority of crime happens in east falmouth and teaticket sections of town. The town averaged 1 to 3 murders a year over the last 6 years. Although since 2004 violent crime there has risen to above both state and national averages. There are a few gangs still existing, the depleted BRP, (the barrows road posse) the BLVD, (the boulavard) Seacoase killas, and the HH heavy hitters. A moderate size High School with around 1500 kids and decent athletics. A lot of recent changes occuring in development of the town, becoming much more city like. For the past three years the town of falmouth has lead the state of massachusetts in developement of 40B project low-income affodable housing. Overall Falmouth is a good place, but like any other upside there is always a downside. Be carefull of certain neighborhoods, people and places, when visiting and you will enjoy your stay.

A vacation spot for all of USA. Eveyone loves Cape Cod in the summer, even their residents. However, they do notice that nearly every spec of their sand is covered with tourist towels and their roads are populated to the maximum, even the backroads.
Poor Katie, a Falmouth Resident made it into the Old Silver beach parking lot at 9 am after waiting nearly 30 minutes for the beach to open. She laid out and got started on that tan, when she was awoken from her sunning from the kicking of ignorant tourists kicking up sand on her towel and in her face as they set up the umbrella right over her head in her sun... there is no other room on the beach now, and it is 9:15. So Katie leaves, and her usual 8 minute ride home results in 8 phone calls on her cell phone, and 58 minutes later she is home.
