MARTHA’S VINEYARD, MASSACHUSETTS
Last week I was lucky enough to have the week off from work and enjoyed a little stay-cation. I traveled to Martha’s Vineyard for a couple days for a mini adventure with my girlfriend. You can take the quick ferry out of Falmouth, MA and arrive in Oaks Bluffs where we stayed at the Summercamp Hotel. The hotel has been newly renovated and brightly designed with fun, whimsical decor overlooking the harbor. The view from the hotel’s porch is a nothing less than relaxing and beautiful.
There are a few towns on Martha’s Vineyard, and I highly suggest renting a bike to see the island. We started our day getting fresh pressed juices at Down Island Juice then rented adorable bikes to pedal into Edgartown, which has the most amazing shopping, boutiques and restaurants. The bike ride from Oak’s Bluff to Edgartown is 6.5 miles, but well worth the exercise. The next stop was lunch at The Seafood Shanty, which has a big outside deck overlooking the water, and was not a disappointment. The lobster rolls and bloody mary’s are to die for there!

The summer cottages, outside bars, restaurants and boutiques are so quaint and have that true island feel. We joked we were on island time and did not have a care in the world. It was a great couple days and if you are looking for a relaxing getaway, you will not be disappointed going to Martha’s Vineyard.
