Start with a quick 15-minute drop-in at the visitor’s center at Heritage State Park. Staff will make suggestions for the best experience possible, and provide directions and local secrets to ensure that you enjoy your mini-vacation with us.

Once you’ve got your to-do list with the help of the locals, check out the multimedia celebration of the city’s early Pocasset Wampanoag history exhibit. The display features a 17th-century diorama of a Wampanoag village along with the iconic Quequechan waterfall, presented by David Jennings.

There’s also a table set up for children’s activities that will engage, entertain, and educate your kids while you soak up the rich history of the Native American tribes that roamed these lands before us.

By now, you’re
probably ready to
stretch your legs…

Just outside the visitor’s center is 14 acres of waterfront property to explore. You can take a stroll along the boardwalk that hugs the Taunton River and connects Battleship Cove to Bicentennial Park while enjoying a stunning view of the iconic Braga Bridge.

Meanwhile, the kids can get their wiggles out by frolicking in the many patches of green space along the boardwalk.

These green spaces are perfect for playing a family game of tag and can serve as lovely picnic locations to refuel for the fun yet to come. If picnics don’t float your boat, head down Columbia Street to discover a myriad of sandwich and coffee shops for some dine-in delight or quick take-out.

Whatever you choose, Fall River’s waterfront will give your mind a break from staring at taillights and traffic signs.

If it’s more adventure you crave, we suggest you hop aboard the USS Massachusetts Battleship for a self-guided tour of this historic WWII naval ship.

Didn’t have time for that picnic, or a quick coffee on Columbia Street? No problem. You can stop for a quick bite to eat at the Morse Code Galley aboard the ship.

*Self-guided tours typically run between 60 – 90 minutes.

Now that you got your feet wet, take a few minutes at the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial Wall to honor our country’s fallen heroes before moving on to the Fall River Maritime Marine & Nautical Museum for a 30-minute stay. Here you can admire a gigantic replica of the RMS Titanic and the Fall River Line.

Each is a fascinating sight for the whole family. The museum is only a short walk from Battleship Cove and requires a nominal entry fee.

Tired from all that walking?

Dine-in at Barrett’s Waterfront Ale House, or the Tipsy Toboggan. Both have an array of fresh cuisine to satisfy everyone’s appetites.

Finally, you can say farewell to Fall River with a full stomach and memories to last a lifetime.
