Local Information: Cape Cod

Uptown Dog Cape Cod® Bakery and Boutique is located in the historic district of West Falmouth, MA. Home to the world famous Falmouth Road Race held each August, Falmouth consists of eight unique villages, including West Falmouth and Woods Hole. West Falmouth is a short 8 miles from the Bourne Bridge, just a mile from Buzzards Bay and Falmouth beaches, and a short drive from ferries to Martha’s Vineyard. The beautiful Shining Sea Bikeway runs through the village of West Falmouth, right behind our store.

The Shining Sea Bikeway follows the coast from Falmouth to Woods Hole, winding along the Vineyard Sound shoreline. Ideal for casual and beginner cyclists, it was built on a former railroad right-of-way, and is level nearly the entire 3.3-mile distance.
Falmouth boasts 68 miles of coastline, 10 public beaches, the Shining Sea Bikeway, hiking, golfing, fishing, swimming and sailing on the waters of Buzzard’s Bay and Nantucket Sound. Falmouth offers the quintessential New England experience with great shops, restaurants, a village green, and lovely walks to the beach. Falmouth offers what is so lacking in so many American towns and cities…character and charm. .

Falmouth is the sea gateway to Martha’s Vineyard with Steamship Authority boats leaving from Woods Hole and the Island Queen from Falmouth Harbor. Uptown Dog Cape Cod® can be reached by a short car ride from both locations.

Falmouth is the second largest town on Cape Cod and sits just 68 miles from either Boston or Providence, RI. Whether you are interested in sun and sand, relaxation, entertainment, sporting activities, history or just spending time with family and friends, Cape Cod has it all.
