The Upper Cape consists of the towns of Bourne, Falmouth, Sandwich and Mashpee.
Bourne is the first town. Bourne runs from the mainland to the island, and is connected by both the Bourne Bridge and Sagamore Bridge. A canal runs from Bourne to Sandwich; the canal is a wonderful place to walk and bike, relax and watch boats cruise by, and enjoy lunch or a picnic. Another plus of Canal is that it is dog friendly!
Falmouth, located just south of Bourne also has a lot to offer. Old Silver Beach is a Cape favorite and a great place to catch the ocean breeze, and swim in the warmth of summer. Main Street in Falmouth is great for an evening walk or a bite to eat. Oh, and don’t forget Woods Hole in Falmouth! Woods Hole is, one of many of Cape Cod’s historic landmarks, where you can take a ferry to the islands of Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket for a day or weekend trip.
Mashpee is an up and coming area on the Cape with so much to do. Check out Mashpee Commons! It’s a great atmosphere with great venues. You can shop, dine, play or even catch a matinee. New Seabury, situated along the South of Mashpee is a very nice community among others in the area.
Sandwich is known for its board walks through the marshes, the long stretch of Sandy Neck beach, where you can camp out or drive on for the day. The Heritage Museum and Gardens or the Glass Museum and much more.
