9. We’re bike people... until we’re not
While Cape roads aren’t super bike friendly (ride single file with the traffic to stay safe and avoid verbal abuse from locals), we have both the Cape Cod Rail Trail and the beautiful Shining Sea Bike Path, which runs through the north side of Falmouth along marshes, through woodlands, and beside the ocean.
10. Drinking is encouraged, especially if it's a local brew
Home to two breweries (Cape Cod Beer and Devil’s Purse Brewing) and three wineries (First Crush in Harwich, Truro Vineyards in Truro, and Cape Cod Winery in East Falmouth), the Cape boasts a small, but formidable, booze scene. And Farmer Willie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer is its newest star.
11. Yeah, we’re kind of a big deal in marine biology
Woods Hole, a village in Falmouth, is one of the world's epicenters for marine, biomedical, and environmental science. It's home to the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, two large private science labs, as well as two federal government facilities, the National Marine Fisheries Service and the US Geological Survey.
