A favorite day trip when visiting Falmouth is to hop on a bike and ride to Woods Hole.  About three miles on the Shining Sea Bike Path (a rail-trail conversion), you will pass salt marshes, Hole, there is much to see and explore.  Check out the free aquarium where they feed the seals daily at 11 am and 4 pm.  An epicenter of scientific discovery, you can also get a taste of what it’s all about at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Discovery Center and learn more about their undersea exploration of the Titanic.

Follow James Cameron (a frequent visitor to the science community here) and look at the many boats dotting the harbor in charming “Eel Pond.”  If you are lucky, the drawbridge will go up and down at least once during your visit.

There are many waterfront dining options in Woods Hole, including fresh roasted coffee and baked goods at Pie in the Sky, fried clams and lobster at the Landfall, oysters and other seafood at Shuckers, ice cream cones and penny candy and so much more.  Great Harbor Woods Hole Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Woods Hole MA Woods Hole, charming Cape Cod village Phusion restaurant in Woods Hole MA porches in Woods Hole penny candy store in Woods Hole, MA free street music in Woods Hole on Cape Cod sunset over the Eel Pond in Woods Hole on Cape Cod festive bikes in Woods Hole shopping in Woods Hole on Cape Cod
