Description

Spend a day exploring the quaint fishing towns, coastal scenes, and world-class shops and eateries of Martha’s Vineyard. Hassle-free roundtrip transportation and an easy ferry ride across the water make this the perfect way to experience a day on the island.

A comfortable coach picks you up from your Boston hotel for the scenic, 90-minute drive to Falmouth. Arrive at the docks and skip the line onto the ferry, either the Island Queen or a boat run by the Steamship Authority depending on the time of year. Grab a drink or snack if you’d like and settle in for the 35-minute ride out to Martha’s Vineyard, located just 7 miles (11 km) off the coast.

With a full 6 hours on the island, you can soak up its rural sights and abundant New England charm at your leisure. Shop the boutiques and galleries in one of the island’s 6 towns, admire the gingerbread cottages and resort homes along the shore, or head to the beach to dig your toes into the sand. You can delve into maritime history at a museum, trek to lighthouses perched on rugged clay cliffs, or rent a bike or moped to zip between attractions. When the afternoon draws to a close, head back to the docks for your return ferry to the mainland, where your bus awaits to take you back to Boston by early evening.

It was fun to travel through the area and see where the the wealthy like to hang out. I was shocked to see that it isn’t all that pretty!

Once on the bus I paid for the island tour. I recommend the tour unless you want to hang out for 5-6 hours in the town the ferry dropped you off at; this time of year the season is almost done so a lot of stores were closed. The drive to and from the ferry was great; our driver was Greg and he gave us information about the Boston and the places of interest we drove past in the morning as he picked up passengers from the different hotels. The island tour guide, Tom, provided a lot of information during the tour. We also had a delicious lunch in town. Be prepared for a long day. We were picked up at the hotel at 6am and did not return 'til about 7pm.
