The Town of Falmouth

The Village of Woods Hole

After a day in the pool, bicycle to the beach for sunset, or stroll through Beebe woods  to the historic Highfield Theater and Arts complex for an evening of culture.  Enjoy the clean Cape Cod air during a 10 minute bikepath walk  to the local coffeehouse, shopping in the village,  or lunch at the Pickle Jar.

The Shining Sea Bike Path offers either a great walk or ride, cutting through the salt marshes and out along the beach. It's about an hour's walk to the village of Woods Hole, or a 15 minute bike ride. Once in Woods Hole there are a lot of things to do and see.
