A typical tourist is going to end up at the ice cream place in downtown Falmouth (you know the one). Having been there more than once and to Smitty's, there is just no comparison. Sure, you have to drive about 5 minutes outside of the chaos of downtown, but it is worth it. Lots of convenient parking. Nice, serene setting set back from Rt. 28. I could go on.
However, the best part is the ice cream. We tried the coffee oreo, chocolate, and grape nut. They were all really good. Lots of picnic tables for eating. Plus, there is a branch of the library next door.
