We will introduce you to our 100 Square mile island by giving you the history both past and present of our 6 unique towns. You will learn about and see:
Oak Bluffs, A Victorian sea side resort that was built around the Methodist campgrounds. The campground is now know for it’s beautiful open air tabernacle and the 300 plus gingerbread cottages from the mid 1800’s that replaced the tents once used for summer revival meetings and the Flying Horse Carousel one of the oldest platforms carousels still in use resides here.
Edgartown has a picture book setting with its harbor and waterfront, along with its stately white Greek Revival houses built by whaling captains and carefully maintained. The Old Whaling Church with its six massive columns, the Edgartown Harbor Lighthouse, and the historic Harborview Hotel make Edgartown a museum piece community.
The busy harbor town of Vineyard Haven – entry port to Martha’s Vineyard since the mid 1600’s and our year-round port.
We will take a drive through the scenic up-Island country-side passing through the historic farming towns of West Tisbury and Chilmark, making a 15 min stop in Menemsha an idyllic fishing village where you can sample some “clam chowdah or lobstah bisque”
The island is so diverse, you will catch glimpses of centuries old stone walls, views to the Atlantic shoreline, grazing livestock, rolling hills and historic homesteads. You will also go over the bridge used in the filming of the movie Jaws.
