In Woods Hole, A Well-Kept Secret Destination
As a destination, Woods Hole somehow slips under the radar. An utterly majestic locale, the tiny haven lies at the extreme Southwest corner of Cape Cod and encompasses just over 2 square miles.
One of Falmouth's eight villages, Woods Hole, the terminus for the Steamship Authority's ferry service to Martha's Vineyard, is typically viewed as a stopover. In the summer, the tiny village swells with travelers loaded up with gear en route to the island. While they might grab a quick lunch or an ice cream cone before they head to the ferry staging area, few take the time to pause and absorb the authenticity of the enclave.
