Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Falmouth is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Falmouth has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Falmouth a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Falmouth is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
