We enjoyed walking and shopping around the Water Square. There has been a lot of money spent to make this area beautiful.

Water Square is beautiful and peaceful. It gives you a serene feeling outside the hustle and bustle of the town of Falmouth. Great place for taking pictures!

We did not spend a lot of time here, but this area has a great history of the water flow used for the area, as well as some small shops you can shop. Good for a pass through visit but not an all day area.

We did not like the water square. It may have been interesting had we felt comfortable staying and looking around, but we were mobbed by pushy locals the moment we walked out of the cruise port. We felt very uncomfortable and did not want to...More

It's a nice enough square once you have hacked your way through all the sellers trying to make a living. Not worth a detour but you will most likely stumble across it if you venture outside of the port.
