Depart in the early morning from either Quincy or Boston traveling to Falmouth, Massachusetts where you’ll catch your ferry (ticket at your own expense). Enjoy the ocean views and feel the ocean breeze during the 45-minute ride to Martha’s Vineyard, disembarking in the city of Oak Bluff.
Wander through this New England seaside town’s unique collection of gingerbread-style cottages and local shops before enjoying lunch at a local eatery. Then continue your day by exploring the historic whaling industry on Martha’s Vineyard and checking out the postcard-worthy lighthouse in Edgartown (own expense). Feel like adding some cute animals to your Martha’s Vineyard visit? A stop at a nearby alpaca farm is sure to delight. Throughout the day, an island-wide hop-on, hop-off transit system will help you to travel between stops.
At the end of your carefree island day, hop back on your ferry for the return trip to Falmouth and then on to Quincy and Boston.
