Both Boston's Logan Airport and Rrovidence's TF Green Airport are about equal distance from WHOI. Logan Airport
is more convenient with direct bus service to Falmouth
and Woods Hole. The bus from Logan
airport http://bonanzabus.com/schedules.shtml has
a stop very close to the Inn on the Square. (Put in
and Falmouth on their web site to
get the correct schedule.) The Coonamessett Inn and Holiday Inn would require a cab from the
