The Landfall

What could beat dangling your feet into the Gulf-stream water after a delicious seafood dinner? Probably not too much – the Landfall Restaurant sits right over the water and serves great fresh and local food from one of the best waterfront locations on Cape Cod. From lobster, swordfish, clams, scallops to juciy sirloin and many other choices – the Landfall serves it all.  This classic New England fare is great for all ages and tastes.

The Wired Village

It might not look like it on the outside, but Woods Hole is a cutting edge place, so it should come as no surprise that the entire village is packed with Internet hot spots. Hidden inside these weathered shingle buildings is a robust WiFi network, making catching up on the fly a breeze. Sitting at Coffee Obsession, a local coffee shop, my computer immediately recognized twelve devices that I could connect to. Passwords to most are clearly printed inside the various shops. For instance, Coffee Obsession’s password is on a sign at the counter above the Thunder Beans and near […]
