A nice place to stop and take in a New England lighthouse. There is a small parking lot and you can walk right up to the lighthouse. It's also worth a walk across the street to take in the view and a monument to a 9-11 victim. You can also walk down a steep trail to the rock beach below.

This iconic lighthouse is in close proximity to Woods Hole and Falmouth. It is one of nearly a dozen on the cape.

Beautiful drive to the lighthouse along the shore. Take the time to climb up to the lighthouse, you'll be rewarded with beautiful views

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.
