Martha's Vineyard Travel Guide: 129 reviews and 325 photos

Only about 45 minutes via ferry from the mainland, one would think Martha's Vineyard is a vacation playground for tourists. To a degree this is true, many places cater to tourists. But the island has plenty of its own character. This is more than a resort island, people actually live and work here. Its small towns are charming, and there are quite a bit of history at each of them. The scenery here is nice, and there are more than just beaches.

The striking cliffs at Gayhead.

The Black Dog general store at Vineyard Haven.

    As a driver I need to say that MOPEDS ARE VERY DANGEROUS. Every year, mopedists hit sand on the road- usually on the curves around the Martha's Vineyard Hospital- and his bike drives out of control into oncoming traffic, and that's the end of him.

    Lovely beach and village pictures--I'm making a sidetrip to the Vineyard in July while in Boston.

    Sounds like it offers more variety than Nantucket


“Say cheese!”
