You can’t visit Woods Hole without taking a trip to the iconic Nobska Beach and Lighthouse that over looks a view of the ferries traveling back and forth on Vineyard Sound and a view of Martha’s Vineyard itself, the 10 minute walk is worth it.
The Knob is the perfect spot for a gorgeous sunset and is just a few minutes down the road. Grab a bottle of wine & cheese from next door and enjoy the beautiful views of Buzzards Bay and Quissett Harbor it is definitely worth the walk so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
The Woods Hole Science Aquarium is great because they have free admission, they have a wide variety of sea life, and the best part is that they invite everyone to come watch as they feed the seals at 11am and 4pm!
Each year in August thousands of athletes from all over the world gather in Woods Hole to run in the Falmouth Road Race. I love taking part in the excitement of running this gorgeous seven mile route that starts off narrow and hilly with tree lined streets and at mile four it opens up to beautiful beach and Martha’s Vineyard Sound.
Head to Beebe Woods and follow the walking trail to the Punch Bowl, where you will find people of all ages taking turns on the rope swing. The trails are beautiful to walk through and the rope swing is my favorite way to cool off in the summer.

Nothing beats the East Coast sunrise or sunset over the Vineyard sound waters, especially from the bay window in the breakfast room or the Woods Hole Inn patio just outside.

The best place to go for a fun filled day in the sun and surf regardless of if you are looking to lounge or be active is Stoney Beach due to the limited amount of people who can park (good thing it is a ten minute walk from the Woods Hole Inn!)
I love working here in Woods Hole, just being a part of this wonderful community and getting to meet all of the many different people who come through is truly an exceptional experience. The vibe of working here in Woods Hole is welcoming and friendly; I would not want to be anywhere else.
Every Friday night throughout the summer my absolute favorite thing to do is to grab a lobster taco from the Quick’s Hole Taqueria, sit on the patio of the Woods Hole Inn, and enjoy the sights of the Vineyard Sound sunset. Then when the sun has finally set over the horizon, I head over to the Landfall to watch my favorite local band, Crooked Coast, to set the vibe for a fun weekend to come. Woods Hole is my home away from home, I love it here.
The Shining Sea Bikeway is a beautiful scenic bike path that is about 10.7 miles long. Make sure to bring your bathing suit because when you hit Surf Beach you might not be able to resist jumping in.
Take a quick walk up to the Historical Society Museum and explore the halls that feature the long and fascinating history of Woods Hole. You will even see pictures of the Avery House (what is now our current Woods Hole Inn), with horse and buggies riding along the dirt road out front!
Each summer college kids from all over the country are recruited to come play in the Cape Cod Baseball League. Most of them end up being recruited to play professionally, such as Boston’s own Jason Varitek. I love heading to a Falmouth Commodores home game right in Falmouth and afterwards I enjoy staying after and meeting the players.
Woods Hole is such an active community all year round. Be sure to check out what is going on at the Woods Hole Community Hall, from theater performances to yoga you are bound to find something fun going on.
The popovers are Pie in the Sky are the tastiest you will ever try! They are made from scratch daily and go perfect with their house roasted, freshly brewed coffee too.
