Suggestions for your trip home

Places to stop for lunch:

Woods Hole -

Captain Kidd’s - Year-round eatery doles out seafood-centric pub grub with a view of the pond & nautical-themed digs.

Shucker’s - Locals hit this casual institution on the docks for lobster specials & locally brewed house beer.

Pie in the Sky Bakery – Baked goods as well as great sandwiches.

Falmouth -

Clam Shack of Falmouth - Rustic counter-serve on the harbor with picnic tables & roof deck provides classic fried seafood. - 227 Clinton Ave, Falmouth, MA 02540

Pickle Jar Kitchen - Bright cafe for comfort-food breakfast plus lunch & brunch drinks dished up in a historic building. My favorite (AMR)!

Seafood Sam’s - Casual indoor-outdoor veteran plates vast menu of seafood staples, including lobster rolls & bisque. - a second venue in Sandwich – same menu on the canal

Enjoy the Fall Colors

Nobska Point Lighthouse - Nobska Lighthouse sits atop a cliff overlooking Martha's Vineyard and the sound between. The views are spectacular and the lighthouse represents so much history. Right down the beach road from MBL- pretty drive.

Highfield Hall and Gardens and Beebe Woods – Art or hiking – take your pick! I recommend the trail to the Punch Bowl – see attached map.

Old Silver Beach – if you prefer to walk along the Beach.
In Sandwich – Heritage Museum and Gardens – beautiful arboretum and walkways as well as old cars and other exhibits

Sandwich Boardwalk – If you follow the Sandwich Boardwalk through the salt marsh to the shoreline, beyond the stone jetties and canal entrance, you can see all the way to Provincetown.

Rent a bike

Corner Cycle in Falmouth - only 1/10 of a mile from the Shining Sea Bikeway -

The Bikeway is a 10.7-mile paved path that sits atop what was once a train line. It begins in North Falmouth near Route 151, about seven miles south of the Cape Cod Canal, and winds its way down to Woods Hole. See the attached map – many possible entry and exit points!
