Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel!
This weekly post is to help readers get travel advice from thousand of Deals We Like blog readers. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to a many domestic and international destinations. Check out recent destinations and comment on suggestions here.
Last week I covered Cape Cod, and the reader that emailed me was also wanting information on Martha’s Vineyard. While Martha’s Vineyard is a fun place to stay for a few days, it is also a very easy day trip from the cape.
So let’s continue with the Cape & The Islands theme and help out reader Jeremy. Here are some things he’d love to know (along with other readers I am sure!):
- Where to stay
- Places to eat
- Where to go
Ferries to Martha’s Vineyard: There are many boats that can take you to this island. Martha’s Vineyard is also a relatively large island, so you will have to find out which part of the island you want to end up in based on where you are staying. Since this island is closest to the Cape it is much easier for a day trip with the ferry ride only taking about 45 minutes (from Woods Hole that is). You can take ferries from: Woods Hole (Falmouth), Hyannis, New Bedford, Nantucket, and Quonset, Rhode Island (seasonally). However, if you are looking to bring a car then Woods Hole is your only option. If you do not need a car, pick the ferry that works best from where you are coming from. For example, if coming from New Jersey, leaving from Rhode Island will be your best option. You can read more about the Martha’s Vineyard ferry options here. Also, the launching point of Woods Hole is a really cool area as well with some great restaurants overlooking the water. There is also great bike path starting in Woods Hole and ending in North Falmouth. The bike path is now 10 miles each way.
If you’ve ever been to Martha’s Vineyard and have any recommendations, let’s help out reader Jeremy by commenting below.
