The wreath makes if very festive

When in the area, take the drive down to Woods Hole to see the lighthouse. You can also get a boat to Martha's Vineyard nearby.

Benches are located o the bluff across the road, with a marker offering a touching remembrance of a family members killed in the 911 attack.

My wife and I went out of our way to go here and were pretty disappointed with the lighthouse. Maybe we built it up too much in our heads. Anyways, one could definitely find better things to do.

A beautiful spot and perfect for some awesome pictures. Nobska Lighthouse does have occasional tours (we missed it as it was the previous day). Awesome views of Vineyard Sound!

This is a beautiful side trip. There are several benches to sit on and take in the views from the Point. The lighthouse has tours, unfortunately it was not open when I arrived but it was still worth a stop.

NIce lighthouse, glad I had the opportunity to visit. Which the tours were available more often or the site had more to offer. Great views of the ocean, nice place to have a picnic if the weather permits.

Pretty and historic landmark. Limited parking which was OK out of season. Not well signed so get a tourist map. Drive on to other places after.

Worth a brief stop if you want some pretty views. Walk across the street and you can walk down the hills for a short bit for a great ocean view.
