Now that you’ve ‘docked’ your car at Battleship Cove, the allure of Fall River’s expansive waterfront and attractions will reel you in for hours on end.
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…
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.
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.
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.
Looking for a truly unique and memorable experience? Then you’ve GOT to check out Stumpy’s Hatchet House! Located within walking distance from the Fall River waterfront and just steps from the Tipsy Toboggan, Stumpy’s Fall River transformed an old mill warehouse into a hatchet throwing venture for adults of all ages! Walk-ins are definitely welcome but calling ahead is encouraged for this 21+ venue that’s also BYOB (oh, and don’t forget your closed toed shoes!)
