January 11, 2020
Just in time to plan your Martha’s Vineyard vacation, the 2019 Martha’s Vineyard Island Guide is available from Martha’s Vineyard Magazine and the Vineyard Gazette Media Group. This year’s guide is bigger and better than ever, with 128 glossy pages including a complete listing of hotels and restaurants, helpful maps, dates for important summer events like Illumination Night and the Agricultural Fair and a curated collection of top attractions, from hiking trails and farm stands to beaches and golf courses.
Special sections on each of the Island’s six towns direct you to the best spots for nightlife, music, film, shopping, and sightseeing and offer quick ideas for building a vacation itinerary. There’s even a primer on all the ways you can get to Martha’s Vineyard, and how to travel around the Island while you are here.
Packed with gorgeous images from the Vineyard’s best photographers, this year’s Island Guide also includes a feature on the Vineyard’s five lighthouses (and how you can visit four of them); a look at the new Martha’s Vineyard Museum in Vineyard Haven; a glimpse of the charming cottages at the Methodist Camp Ground in Oak Bluffs and some tips for visiting Chappaquiddick.
To help you decide which of the Island’s beaches best suits your style, the guide has a “beach matchmaker” listing the best places on the sand for every kind of visitor: families with kids, dog-walkers, body surfers and wildlife lovers will all find a spot for them along the Island shore.
There’s also a brief history of Martha’s Vineyard with an illustrated timeline, an overview of the Island’s bustling art scene and loads of suggestions for the best places (and things) to eat, drink, do and see while you are here.
