Woods Hole is a salty, sea spray village that brings the Nobel Laureate and the local fisherman together in harmony. It is a village of the past, with many seafaring tales, and it is a village of the future. In the summer, Woods Hole bustles with visitors, shoppers, scientists, residents, and passengers waiting for the next ferry to the island of Martha's Vineyard. It is a strolling village, easily reached in the summer aboard the "WHOOSH" trolley or by the "Shining Sea Bikepath." As you amble about the village, you'll discover many great eating places, unique shops, galleries, museums, educational institutions and attractions, beautiful gardens and scenic vistas.
