You’ll travel as far as Cape Cod by coach then from Falmouth take the short but scenic ferry journey across translucent blue waters to Oak Bluffs via Vineyard Sound. On arrival, it’s up to you how to spend your day - join an organised 3-hour guided tour by van that stops at Oak Bluffs, Edgartown and Vineyard Haven, or use the hop-on, hop-off island transit to make your own way. With six pretty towns, beaches, nature reserves, the famous lighthouses, shops and art galleries to explore, you’ve no shortage of ideas.
Martha’s Vineyard is breathtakingly beautiful at any time of year but especially as the spring flowers come into bloom, and during the Fall when the trees turn delightful shades of orange, yellow and brown. You can rent kayaks for a few hours, take a swim if the water is warm enough, or just admire the landscape as you walk around, before finding a place to eat. This is a simply unmissable day-trip out of Boston, as you find out exactly why so many holidaymakers, and indeed presidential families, choose to hide away on the Vineyard as often as possible.
