We have been talking about some of our favorite spots on the Southcoast lately, and sometimes New Bedford's neighboring city of Fall River gets a bad rep. Well we are here to make sure that people see just how awesome Fall River can be! So here are 10 things we love about this city!

The Tipsy Seagull:


If it's 5 o'clock anywhere, it's here- 7 days a week, noon until 11pm.

Not every alleged ax murderer has their own Mother Goose-esque rhyme.  Extra points for being able to actually book an overnight stay at the crime scene itself. Don't forget to buy the ax-shape cookie cutter from the gift shop while you're there!

Oriental Chow Mein Company:

Buy the biggest bag you can; Chow Mein sandwiches for everybody!

The Children's Holiday Parade:


What's better than a parade?  A parade with Macy's Day Parade style balloon floats and a Santa Claus that flies in on a helicopter!
