We took our family to see this lighthouse & were immediately impressed by the beauty of the surrounding area. It's not a tall lighthouse, but it's white and very quaint along with the house on the property. They told us they're planning on making it...More

We hired bikes from Falmouth and took the bike trail to this lighthouse, we were not disappointed! You can go up to the structure and get pictures, it was definitely worth the short trip.

If you are in the area, spend one evening to walk (or ride) to Nobska Lighthouse. It is a nice place to see the sun during sunset

Beautiful view and a history lesson. We stopped after dinner at Sams seafood. We also found the fairy to take over to Martha's Vineyard. Love the cape

It's a nice landmark to visit, but not the best lighthouse experience. There is only a very tiny parking lot so you might have to park further down the street and walk up. You can't walk around the property or in the lighthouse so there...More

A winding ride but a nice trip...very little parking and can be very windy but if you like maritime history and lighthouses it is a must.

It's a 1-1.5 mile walk from where we stay and Woods Hole marine. The walk there is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. If you walk there in summer late afternoon, make sure you bring bug repellent. Great place to see the sunset too.

My husband and I took my parents to this lighthouse for a fun visit, and it was one of our favorite lighthouses to date. The lighthouse itself wasn't open when we visited, but it's clear that it's in good shape. We were able to walk...More

This is a "Kodak Moment" spot, and worth a stop in Falmouth. Be sure to cross the road and take in the view and see the touching memorial in remembrance of a 9/11 victim who was murdered on AA Flight 11.

I didn't notice the trolley. Most people ride their bikes up there. My husband and I walked there and back from the Woods Hole Inn. The weather was nice, so we made the most of it. You can drive to the lighthouse, but there... More
