The best of the island.
Enjoy Oak Bluffs with its Victorian style gingerbread cottages from the mid 1800’s when the Methodists replaced their tents with over three hundred charming cottages and an open air tabernacle for their summer revival meetings. Shortly after, a Victorian sea side resort was built around the campgrounds. Then on to Edgartown passing by lighthouses, beaches then over the bridge from where the movie Jaws was filmed.
Edgartown is a picture book setting with its harbor and waterfront. The stately white Greek Revival houses built by whaling captains have been carefully maintained. The Old Whaling Church with its six massive columns, the Edgartown Harbor Lighthouse, captains’ homes on North Water street not equaled anywhere, and the historic Harborview Hotel make Edgartown a museum piece community.
Will then take 20-mile drive through the scenic up-Island country-side. Passing through the historic farming towns of West Tisbury and Chilmark, catch glimpses of centuries old stone walls, views to the Atlantic shoreline, grazing livestock, rolling hills and historic homesteads.
Add a visit to Menemsha, the secluded fishing village, then proceed to the busy harbor town of Vineyard Haven – entry port to Martha’s Vineyard since the mid 1600’s and back to Oak Bluffs
