A Day Trip To Martha’s Vineyard

Keri   3 Jun , 2015  

Martha’s Vineyard has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember.  My mom and I would always follow stories on the Kennedys and Martha’s Vineyard had been known to be  their second home.  It’s also a favourite vacation spot of US Presidents.   So while my husband was in Cambridge for a short course, I decided to book a private tour for a day trip to the island.

We landed at Oak Bluffs.  A cute area with rows of gingerbread houses.

If you have kids in tow, they will love feeding the alpacas at the farm.

The travel to Martha’s Vineyard from Cambridge/Boston is about 3 hours including a 45 hour ferry ride from Woods Hole.  It would be great to rent a gingerbread cottage for a night , perhaps on my next visit 🙂

 

For tours around Boston and nearby areas including Martha’s Vineyard, I highly recommend our tour guide Declan Kelly.  You may email him at declankelly1@verizon.net
