Since becoming parents my husband Mike and I look forward to our one night (kid-free) escape to Martha's Vineyard each summer.
We boarded the Island Queen Ferry in Falmouth. I like taking this smaller ferry out of Falmouth rather than the big Steamship Authority out of Woodshole. The Steamship Authority boats are bigger, you can bring your car on them (with advanced reservation) and they run more often, but they are really crowded and have alot of closed-in areas. These closed-in areas make me seasick. Also before you get to the boat you have to park your car in a parking lot miles away and take a long bus ride to the dock. So before I am even seasick, I am carsick! LOL. I guess you could say I have transportation issues. Anyway, the Island Queen is small but very open and the parking is within walking distance. No offense to the ole Steamship Authority but the Island Queen works better for us.
Upon arriving on the island we took a short bus ride (no, thankfully I did not get bus sick) to Edgartown.
We did rent bikes but we needed to do a few things first. A little bit of eating and drinking (always looking for a balance).
Check-in to our hotel...
This year we are very excited to stay at the Vineyard Square Hotel. Two summers ago we dined at the amazing Chesca's which is a part of this lovely hotel. I remember peeking in the lobby thinking, I would love to stay here.
