This is a "Kodak Moment" spot, and worth a stop in Falmouth. Be sure to cross the road and take in the view and see the touching memorial in remembrance of a 9/11 victim who was murdered on AA Flight 11.

Headed for the Lighthouse on winding shore road, we were surprised to suddenly be right there under the lighthouse. Liked the historic marker and the views.
