Fall River Beach, MA
I love taking the highway through Fall River because it is so scenic.
However when we stopped at the Battleship Visitor Information, we were told that there isn't a Fall River Beach.
There use to be one years ago, but it now has a pumping station there.
When we asked where everyone went to swim, they said everyone goes to South Shore Beach, or you can exit 1 before the Bourne Bridge which will take you into Buzzards Bay Center, and there is a beach there on the canal.
She said if you follow hwy 88 then you'll find all the beaches better than if you follow Interstate 25.
So that's what we did and wound up at Onset Beach. See the Onset Beach pictures.
Below are some of the attractions in Fall River. We really liked the Battleship Cove even though we didn't take the tour. They have a carousel there too, and old one that was from Dartmouth. It is still operational and 50 cents a ride. What a deal.
