Help Me Plan My Trip to Martha’s Vineyard!

We just returned from our last ski trip of the season in Vermont.  So bittersweet.  Even though I love spring and warmer weather, I am sad to know we won’t be spending many weekends up north for awhile.  The ski conditions were fabulous this year and the boys are becoming amazing skiers.  My 13 year old can out-ski us all now and is enjoying every minute of it.  He truly loves the sport!

While I unpack the winter clothes one last time, I am beginning to think about my girls weekend scheduled for May.  A group of us are heading to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts and I cannot wait!  I have never been there but I seemed to have taken over the trip planning…no surprise there.

So far, we know we are staying at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown but that’s all we have planned.  I have been reading up on restaurants and things to do but I would love to hear from those of you who have been to Martha’s Vineyard.

What are your favorite restaurants?

What are the must see/must do activities?

Any other tips or suggestions are appreciated!

If you missed my post, Girl Getaways of My Past and Future, you can pop over there to see where we have taken trips in the past.  In that post, I also asked for help with the Martha’s Vineyard planning but I figured I would dedicate a whole post to it now.  Thank you to everyone who gave advice there.  I am taking tons of notes!

Thanks for your help!

I can’t wait to hear what advice you have to give!

I would love for you follow along so you don’t miss a post!

    Sounds like loads of fun! I've never been there, and I'll be interested to see your post on the trip.

    I was there in October last year….we stayed at the Charlotte Inn and it was amazing!!! We only had a couple of days there. We spent some time in the downtown area and did lots of walking and driving on the island…You can email me me for particulars!

    Wish I could help, Shelley, but I haven't been there yet. I really want to go because I have heard so many wonderful things about it. If you go to the Cape or Nantucket, I can help. Enjoy your week.

    Fun! We went to Cape Cod for our honeymoon — 27 years ago! And the thing I remember most about Martha's Vineyard is the ride over and back. SO beautiful!

    You should make sure that you see the lighthouse & the cliffs. My favorite area is Vineyard haven. It would be nice if you can go to each area & see a little bit of everything. If you have a car. I think there are trolleys too. http://therantingsofadramaqueensmum.blogspot.com

    Shelley, you are going to love your time on the Vineyard. It is so easy to get around on the island because they have a wonderful bus service that runs from town to town. Susan Branch lives in Vineyard Haven. You should walk by her home and see if you can spot her out and about. She is a dear! Have a lobster roll for me!

    How fun Shelley that you are heading up this way for a girl's weekend. The Vineyard is a great spot for a getaway! Edgartown has so much to do and you could probably occupy all your time walking around, visiting the shops, and going to the restaurants there, but try to go over to Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs too if you have time. We go over for daytrips and the occasional overnight but spend most of our time on the Cape, however I have lots of friends who spend a lot of time there and will ask what their favorite tried and true restaurants are in Edgartown!
