Martha’s Vineyard Massachusetts

You can travel to the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard by ferry or plane, just check for the different ports that leave from Cape Cod and times. One company to check is the www.Steamshipauthority.com. Tips on Steam Ship Authority Martha’s Vineyard is 7 miles from Cape Cod (which makes for an enjoyable ferry ride) and is 100 square miles in size. Six towns make up Martha’s Vineyard: Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah. Each town is unique, with so much to offer, from beaches, boating, biking & hiking trails, museums, art galleries and array of fantastic restaurants (don’t leave without having tasted a lobster roll). There is something for every age group. Just a little high light from each town: Oak Bluffs has the oldest carousel in America that is still operating. Edgartown had the first settlement on the island. Vineyard Haven has a lot of maritime history dating back to the 1800’s. West Tisbury host the annual popular Agricultural Fair every August. Chilmark has the hills and pastures and beautiful sunsets. Aquinnah is where you can purchase hand-made native items and view the Cliffs from the Aquinnah Lighthouse. see Boat and Kayak Rental
