We are staying in Falmouth and were looking for local things to do. This is a nice lighthouse in a beautiful location. Great for picture taking. The lighthouse is currently closed for construction and there is limited parking. It's across the street from the ocean...More

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.

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
