Martha's Vineyard

Martha's Vineyard (if you haven't heard of it already) is an island just south of Cape Cod. You have to get there by boat or plane since there's no bridge so, Matt and I started our day to Martha's Vineyard on the Ferry from Woods Hole. We brought along our bikes so we could explore the island without a car!

We arrived late morning after about a 45 minute ferry ride.

We rode our bikes around Vineyard Haven then on to Oak Bluffs. Martha's Vineyard is good for strolling, biking, beaching, people watching, eating, drinking, boating and house gazing.

There are some cute cottages from the 1800's near Oak Bluffs that I wouldn't mind staying in-

We found a huge park with the prettiest grass I've seen in a while. I had to lay down in it because it looked so inviting-

Did you know some of Jaws was filmed on Martha's Vineyard??

The oldest carousel in the USA is also located on the island-

Overall Martha's Vineyard was everything I'd hoped it would be except I didn't see any celebrities... Besides that I loved the old charm of the island and I'm glad we got to experience it.
