Martha's Vineyard - Top five offbeat things to do


      I always believe that the best things about travel are the memories, curated memories. Now just like me, this fall,  I remember the memory of summer travel to Martha's Vineyard. Located to the south of Cape Cod Massachusets, this island is 100 square miles (260 km2), and the third largest on the East Coast of the United States, Marthas Vineyard is not only former presidents Mr. Obama's favorite destination, it could be yours too. It is easily accessible through ferries and buses are readily available to travel inside the island, if you are not renting a bike or a car. Pristine beaches, scenic cliffs, lighthouses and charming towns, Martha's Vineyard, the tiny island can please you in so many ways. If you are lucky to visit, I am sure it will hold a little piece in your heart forever.



  • The Aquinnah Cliffs - If you want to witness nature's own live painting, this is what it is, The Aquinnah cliff.  The beauty beyond words with the vast view of clay cliffs.


  • Oak buff Campground - More than 300 houses, used for methodologist camp meeting houses in 1835. Entering into the ground, you will feel like landing in a fairytale. Riots of beautiful colors adorned with lovely set up is a must visit not just for adults, but kids would wonder too.

  • Edgartown lighthouse -  You will be amazed by this 1828 built lighthouse surrounded by the view of the beach and the harbor. If you are visiting during sunset or sunrise, it is definitely a cherry on top. Could be a great stroll through nature and history.

  • Edgartown - Quaint, classy and colonial charm is all about Edgartown. With pretty shops and with great eateries, without taking a tour of it, your Martha's Vineyard trip is incomplete.

  • Food - No vacation would be complete without some great flavorsome food. Here you are in Martha's Vineyard with a great selection of food for anybody from dinner to dessert and coffee to the cocktail.

  6. If there is one place in the US I've always wanted to go to it would be Martha's Vineyard. It must be all the series or movie that's been filmed there, or something like that. But your post makes me want to go even more now. So beautiful
