Ever Wondered What A Trip to Martha's Vineyard is Like?
A trip to Martha’s Vineyard, an island nestled south of mainland Massachusetts, is the quintessential Cape Cod experience. Beautiful vistas, grand lighthouses, and stunning sunsets are just a few of the sights that attract the 100,000+ summer visitors. Known primarily as a place to relax, enjoy the picturesque scenery, and explore the endless gorgeous beaches, you’ll feel at home from the moment you arrive on the comfortable and laid back island. Accessible only by boat and air, a quick ferry ride can take you and your car across the channel, while offering gorgeous views of the peaceful oasis that is Martha’s Vineyard.
With miles of bike trails and winding hikes, many of which lead to secluded beaches and stunning views, you can explore the island while listening to the music of the waves and smelling the salt in the air. Whether you want to see the famous gingerbread houses, ride the historic flying horses, or even swim in the lagoon where Jaws was filmed, you’ll never lack for adventure on Martha’s Vineyard. Each summer there are a variety of events and festivals, from the scrumptious food and wine fair to the relaxed fun of the harbor festival. The food scene is sure to impress, and no visit is complete without at least one “lob-stah dinner.”
Martha’s Vineyard has a rich history and a strong Wampanoag Native American culture. Everyone, from Hollywood celebrities, presidents, to the everyday American family, has been drawn to the beauty and simplicity of island life, and the great escape it provides from the hustle and bustle of mainland life.
