Photo Ops:

There’s no better spot to snap a unique sunset photo than The Knob, located at the entrance to Quissett Harbor. Visitors have to travel to this scenic spot on foot, and the path measures just under one mile, ending in a stunning overlook with unparalleled views of Buzzards Bay.

Favorite Spots:

The Shining Sea Bikeway, perfect for cyclists and walkers alike, runs just under 11 miles from County Road in North Falmouth to the Steamship Authority in Woods Hole, following the original route of the Old Colony rail line. Be sure to take a detour off the path in Woods Hole to see the famous Nobska Lighthouse, with gorgeous views of both Woods Hole Harbor and Vineyard Sound.

Mom & Pops:

Epic Oyster is a new addition to the North Falmouth community, situated in an old railcar that was used for years as the location of various diners. Owners Sarah and Marc Warner seem to have the magic touch, revamping this classic location into a successful oyster bar and seafood restaurant. As an added bonus, this fun spot is open year round!
