Summer Things to do in Martha's Vineyard!
It's officially summer time and we know many of you are taking your summer vacations, weekends away, day trips, and family getaways, getting out of town to celebrate the sunshine, so we wanted to post a Things To DO in Martha's Vineyard in case you are heading out that way to enjoy the vineyard. We visited 3 years / summers ago and hope that you enjoy seeing and reading about our adventure below. Our next Summer Things To Do blog post will be featuring Montauk, NY so stayed tuned for that to follow.
Where did we stay?
We stayed in Edgartown when on the island of MV at Vineyard Square Hotel & Suites. You will notice there is a few different towns and areas that will make up the entire MV island. So here we grabbed pizza at a few pizza joints (Edgartown Pizza), ate at a restaurant by the water, rented bikes to ride all over, etc. Very low key trip for us.
How did we get around?
We had our vehicle so that helped us get around the island. You can also rent bikes all over and travel via bike!
We got breakfast at a cool joint in the morning not far from our hotel called Among the Flowers Café. It was great, but long waits if you aren’t there early. So show up early!
We also tried The Right Fork Diner out, so/so from what I can remember, it was diner type food.
The one fancy dinner we went out to was at Alchemy, and was delicious, I would highly recommend. We made reservations the day before to secure a dinner spot.
We also ate a PUB in town, Newes From American Pub. Was great, we would go back!
They have incredible houses to look at, and we did a lot of walking through the neighborhoods just to see them.
We took the large ferry to the island landing in Edgartown. (Details on the Ferry below)
Gay Head Lighthouse: This is one to see! The views of the water are awesome, literally two or three shades of blue! Tours open I believe after Memorial Day, I would def. do this again. It was just so pretty out there! We also stopped at a place to sit and eat by the water, I remember Sarek ordered a Swordfish sandwich and he really enjoyed it. They have grounds you can walk around there as well. This was one of our favorite things we did!
This town was super cute. We rented mopeds here for the day and had a lot of fun cruising around town. They have a carousel in town, some restaurants, and shops and a nice big beach. You can also walk to or ride to the East Chop Lighthouse. It’s small but something to see. We did the beach here for the day!
We left on the Oaks Bluff ferry when heading back home.
We took our car over on a super small ferry out of Edgartown over to Chappaquiddick Island. There was a little bit of driving around to do and then we went to Mytoi a Japanese garden that we could walk through, which was fun but small and short. This was a short morning adventure for us.
Time at The Beach
Evening at the beach on a cool and cloudy day!
Ferry that we scheduled on:
The Steamship Authority ferry out of Woods Hole, MA (Cape Cod) is the only one capable of transporting vehicles to Martha’s Vineyard. If you plan to bring a car onto Martha’s Vineyard, you will need to take this ferry service. It runs into Vineyard Haven year round, and Oak Bluffs seasonally. Either port is only a 10-15 min. drive to Edgartown. Advance vehicle reservations are strongly recommended. Phone: 508-477-8600
