The Best Things to Do in the Area!

Savvy travelers know the Falmouth/Woods Hole area is one of Cape Cod's original resort towns. It also has the most coast and shoreline of all the Cape towns with eleven harbors bursting with seaside charm. With Martha's Vineyard a few miles away, staying in Woods Hole is one of the best ways to day trip the Vineyard.

Falmouth offers a lesser known, calmer way to enjoy the Cape with countless things to do. Falmouth Main Street offers travelers a quaint village experience, lined with restaurants and shops. There’s also stimulation for intellectuals and conservationists by visiting the world-famous Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), University of Chicago's Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole Research Center or one of the other famous science labs located here.

With so much to offer, how will you spend your time on the Cape? Check out our suggestions for the best things to do in Falmouth and Woods Hole below to see our top picks.
