A couple of years ago I traveled to Martha’s Vineyard for a long weekend with my family. We have gone to Martha’s Vineyard about 4 or 5 times now, and we have yet to visit Nantucket. These are just a collection of photos that I found from this trip that is a look into the classic New England Coastal lifestyle.
The places I visited in Martha’s Vineyard was the down-island towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown.
A great place to go for some ice cream is Mad Martha’s ice cream shop, where they have the best flavors, and the ice cream is a very creamy consistency, similar to an ice cream shop from home where they use cows milk from the cows that roam their land. This is also a great place to people watch, as a lot of locals and preppy summer tourists like this place.
Their is a very big artist community in Martha’s Vineyard, as you can find sculptures, and art galleries all around the island.
We then stopped for lunch at the Black Dog Tavern, and if you have never been to Martha’s Vineyard, their mascot pretty much is the Black Dog, as their are many stores and restaurants named after it there.
This is the view from our table at the Black Dog Tavern.
I then explored around town on the moped, stopping at a couple of stores along the way.
I had to include this shirt because all my friends know that I loveeee ketchup and I pretty much put it on anything I eat.
Next, we stopped at Murdick’s Fudge, and we saw a live demonstration of someone making and cutting up the fudge.
We finally reached Edgarstown, which is a less touristy town but has just as much charm and stores to visit as Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs.
At the end of the day I ended up going to 3 beaches, one in Edgarstown, one in Oak Bluffs, and one back at our hotel. I also saw someone using a water jetpack for the first time (and this is back when the water jetpack first came out) and there was a crowd on the beach watching him perform tricks.
