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.

Don’t miss the WHOI Discovery Center, where you can learn all about their discovery of the Titanic, hydrothermal vent research, and so much more including some fascinating information and unbelievable footage of great white sharks. The best part is, this exhibit center is free!
Throughout the year the Woods Hole Community Theater puts on some great productions. What is better than watching these productions? Actually being in them!
Spend the late morning walking among the little garden on Millfield St. called the St. Joseph’s Mary Garden across from the historic St. Joseph’s Chapel. This little garden is said to be the first public Mary Garden in the US.
Woods Hole is a foodie’s dream. I enjoy eating at the Quicks Hole Tavern, where they change the menu seasonally but it is always delicious. Right now I can’t get enough of the scallops and depending on what mood I am in I will either eat at the chef’s bar or grab a table with a gorgeous water view to people watch.

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.

I love walking along the water’s edge looking for interesting finds at Chappy (Chapoquoit) Beach, and staying to watch the sun go down over the water. You will never know what you will find and the view is wonderful.
My favorite thing to do in the area is to go shopping with my sister Maureen. Woods Hole and Falmouth have some great local shops with lots of talented artisans.
Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies, and since I tend to cook for a crowd, finding and using locally sourced ingredients is a fun and easy challenge when you stock up at the local farmer’s market held every week on Main Street in Falmouth.
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.
Falmouth Road Race weekend inspires people of all kinds to come to Woods Hole either to participate in this special event or just to spectate. Afterwards everyone celebrates with delicious local food and drinks all weekend long!
On my lunch break I enjoy walking down to the Woods Hole Market, grabbing a turkey club sandwich and heading up to their rooftop terrace to watch all of the boats come and go in Eel Pond.
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!
