The Week Ahead: Friday, January 16 through Thursday, January 22, 2015
January 16, 2015
Welcome to the first 3-day weekend of 2015! Starting the work week off with a holiday typically makes for a quiet weekend this time of year, as families head off the Island for skiing and other winter activities not readily available on MV. Of course the MLK Day holiday is also the perfect opportunity to enjoy a relaxing winter break on Martha’s Vineyard. The cold weather that blew in last week has held and a daily light dusting of snow has added some sparkle to the Island’s wintry landscape. Fireplaces are crackling and a warm welcome awaits at inns and restaurants. Staycation or vacation, enjoy the Week Ahead!
