It is at the end of the Shining Sea Bicycle Path and is the way to Martha’s Vineyard.  With lots of fine dining as well, Woods Hole is visited by many during the summer.

If you are here on a weekend we hope you will drop in to the Market, located in the Old Fire Station Building next to the Community Hall on Water Street.

And, if it’s a bright day, you might be greeted by a pirate captain at his table of treasures from the deep, as you cross the bridge !
