“Pretty lighthouse but not much there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

While in Falmouth/Woods Hole area on Cape Cod, we visited the Nobska light house. You can only stop to view from the outside and read some of the history on signs outside. You can not enter the lighthouse nor is there anyone stationed here to give you more info or for you to question to get more history. If in the area, it's worth a stop but not for much more than 15 or 20 minutes.

“Interesting History”

As a history buff, I was excited to learn about the Nobska Lighthouse history and to have a chance to view the inside. The views were great, and I learned a lot.

“Beautiful”

The lighthouse is beautiful and had a small parking lot conveniently located. It's a must when visiting Falmouth or Woods Hole.

“Great Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Definitely stop by this location when you are in the Falmouth area. The lighthouse is beautiful and a great location to take picture. Make sure to go across the street from the lighthouse. The ocean views are spectacular!

“Charming lighthouse and great ocean views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

I love lighthouses, so I was very interested in seeing the Nobska Lighthouse. It was closed at the time I was visiting, but I understand visitors can go inside during certain hours. There are only a few parking spaces. If you're staying in Woods Hole, it may be more convenient to take a short walk to the lighthouse. Just be careful of the traffic; it's not usually heavy but you still have to be vigilant.

Maybe the best part is that if you cross the road from the lighthouse, you'll have great views of the ocean
