Martha's Vineyard was the best time. We started the day by renting a yellow jeep and we ended up driving all over the island with the top down - the wind was brutal but it was so, so worth it. The scenery is spectacular. Every time we turned a corner there was something new to gawk at, whether it was a hidden bay, a row of boats, or a gorgeously designed house. I feel like moving to the island has jumped up on my list of priorities! Anyway, here are my top picks for things to do in Martha's Vineyard:
1//Aquinnah Cliffs: These cliffs are such a sight to see. If you've ever seen Ireland's Cliffs of Moher, these cliffs aren't too far off from that type of view.
2//Edgartown Shopping: The original Vineyard Vines is here! Apparently when the Obamas vacation in the Vineyard, they get a private shopping experience in VV - some of the employees had even met them!
3//Ben and Bill's Ice Cream in Oak Bluffs: Best. Ice cream. Ever. Seriously, you have to try this ice cream. It's so worth it.
4//Gingerbread Houses in Oak Bluffs: These are the cutest little houses you will ever see. There are two whole long streets of them and people rent them for the summer! They're all very colorful and adorably decorated - definitely a must see.
5//The Black Dog Bakery: Yes, it's touristy, but it's also great.
6//Overlook of the Ocean in Edgartown: There's a great spot right on the harbor in Edgartown where you can climb up a few steps to get a wonderful view of all the boats docked. It's right across from Chappaquiddick island and to the right of the lighthouse in the area.
