Such a beautiful lighthouse with great view of harbor and Martha's Vineyard. The only disappointing thing was you can not go inside the lighthouse. They should open this one weekday and one weekend day at a minimum.

We were traveling to Boston and decided to rent a car to explore for a few days and one thing I had always wanted to see in person was a Cape Cod Light house. This was the first one I have been able to see up close and personal. Parking is minimal and you can not go inside but this... More

Such a pretty spot, love the overlook across the way. Always a great place to shoot photos for friends and family visitors. Everyone loves a lighthouse. Watch out for the parking situation, its very tight and can cause some minor snarls.

This is such a nice point. Beautiful scenery. Nice memorial across the road. The lighthouse was not open both times we went however did not matter the outlook to the ocean was awesome. I could sit there all day. The rad to the lighthouse is very scenic and slot of pull overs to take great pictures.

If you see a parking place, STOP! You'll be glad you did. Anytime of the day is special, and make sure you cross the road to see the tasteful memorials. Please, however, park with respect to others. Thanks!

Working lighthouse that offers tours during the season. Also, you may want to lease the lighthouse and the adjoining buildings. Fix it up, live there...of course the fog horn still works.....

We Road our bikes up to the light house.. It is a great place for photo's and a land mark to ride your bikes. Woods hole is right around the corner. On the way we stopped and took a swim..

I visit Nobska every time we are in Falmouth. The scenery is amazing from here, and I have watched the sunrise and sunset from this location. Great place to ride your bike to also, especially since there is extremely limited parking here. Great views of Falmouth and Martha's Vineyard from across the street.

Just looked at these reviews and can say that we picked the right day to go. When we got there, there was plenty of parking. As we approached the Coast Guard officer he told us that they were open the day we dot there and that the tour was about to end in half an hour. Needless to say we... More

Can't go up into lighthouse. Can go across street and get a good view of the water, though. If you happen to be a few minutes away, worth passing by! I wouldn't drive from far away to see it.
