Island Time, January 14-27: Lighter and Brighter
January 14, 2021
We’re already halfway through January, days are getting longer (and lighter!), and spending time outdoors on the Vineyard is a winter balm. Take a guided hike or just explore on your own. Or stay curled up inside by the fire and enjoy virtual Island Bingo or a virtual concert. For more activities, check out The Complete Martha’s Vineyard Calendar and our picks below.
