Martha’s Vineyard Trip Report
While in Rhode Island and Massachusetts for a family wedding last week, hubby and I took a little side trip and spent 24 hours in Martha’s Vineyard. It was a short trip but we managed to do a lot!
24 Hours in Martha’s Vineyard
We left for Martha’s Vineyard on a Sunday morning. You have to take a ferry to get to the island – or you can fly but I didn’t explore that option. There are ferries from Massacussets and RI. We were already in RI so I opted for the ferry out of Quonset Point, RI. This ferry is pedestrian only. You have to take a different ferry out of Woods Hole if you plan to take your car. You can rent a car pretty easily on Martha’s Vineyard so unless you’re staying for an extended time, I don’t see any reason you should take your car. I will say that the ferry from RI to Martha’s Vineyard on the way back was very rough and myself and a handful of others were sea sick. It’s about an hour and 45 minutes. If we ever go back to Marhta’s Vineyard I’ll take one of the shorter ferries because I’d rather drive further than be sea sick and stuck on a ferry for over an hour. :/ Enough about that.
Once we set foot on land I knew our 24 hours in Martha’s Vineyard was going to be awesome. We arrived in Oaks Bluff and were immediately greeted by a charming town with cute shops and restaurants. We walked to our hotel, the Pequot hotel, about a 10-minute walk from the ferry. Our room wasn’t ready but they stored our bags. Armed with brunch recommendations, we headed out to grab some grub.
We decided on 20by9 and I’m SO glad we did. I definitely recommend this place. The restaurant has an industrial, laid-back vibe, the staff is super friendly and the food was delish.
We had mimosas, chicken and waffles and a fried oyster sandwich.
