Fall River Restaurants
Caravela: The best place for Portuguese food!!
Fall River is a city that is mostly populated by Portuguese folk. Because of this, there are quite a few Portuguese restaurants to choose from. If your looking for a great steak at a great price, Caravela is the restaurant for you. The waitresses speak both Portuguese and English. The walls are colorful with paintings hanging all over the place. It's a medium-size eatery that is mostly inhabited by Portuguese people but I recently took an American friend there and she loved the food. Don't be afraid of the items on the menu. It's mostly meat or seafood with relatively normal side dishes. There is a wine menu and a dessert menu as well. Parking may be a bit difficult because it's on the side of a busy street and the main parking spots are usually taken but you can park on the side of the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: While everyone else in my family gets steak (which comes with fries, rice, and an egg sunny side up... sounds weird but it goes well with the rest of the dish), I get the chicken plate which comes with chicken, rice, fries, an egg sunny side up, and salad. Most selections are about $10 and the plates of food are larger than normal.Related to:

Fall River Local Customs
Lizzie Borden and her ax
If you have ever heard the grizzly story about a real life murder... many feel the need to investigate the story of Lizzy Borden. The house owned by the notorious family is now a B&B - if you dare to stay there. All sorts of stories abound and you can find a small museum w/ artifacts of the horrid event when (supposedly) Lizzie murdered her parents with an axe. Ugh!
Fall River Off The Beaten Path
Hydroponics in an old mill
Thousands of watts of grow lights supply the energy for this young man's vegetables.
Delicious Hydroponic veggies in an all natural growing environment. Yum.
Look for the Durfee Union Mills Building 8

The Fall River Historical Society has two Hair Wreaths. Apparently, in the 1800's, it was perfectly normal to collect the hair of loved ones and form it into decorations.
But is it art?Related to:
