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!
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.
I’m an outdoors person and Woods Hole has everything that I love to do – from catching bluefish and stripers, kayaking and sailing up and down the Elizabeth Islands, to biking and swimming. I even swam from Nobska Point over to Martha’s Vineyard – twice!
Throughout the year the Woods Hole Community Theater puts on some great productions. What is better than watching these productions? Actually being in them!
I love grabbing a honey vanilla iced chai latte from Coffee Obsession, finding a spot to sit on the hill and watching the people and the many pups stroll by.

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!)
Open Mic night every Monday at Pie in the Sky is a great time and you get to enjoy the various talents of the local community, from comedy bits to musical talents, poetry and more.
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!
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!
It is such a unique experience to witness a real, working drawbridge and to see those beautiful boats cruise right through into or out of Eel Pond.
