Falmouth is noted for being one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved Georgian towns. The town was meticulously planned from the start, with wide streets in a regular grid, adequate water supply, and public buildings. It even had piped water before New York City. Today it is trying to become a leading port city, able to accommodate some of the world’s largest cruise ships. However, when the cruise ships are not in, the port area is closed off to visitors and the town retains a decidedly low-key vibe.
