Much of the Vineyard’s land remains pristine and unspoiled, from the colourful clay cliffs of Aquinnah to several nature preserves and in the spring and summer, the flora of Martha’s Vineyard bursts forth in all shades of green and colourful blooms.
Avid shoppers will feel right at home on the Vineyard, where boutique shops are the norm. There are no chain stores on the island, making nearly all purchases distinctive to the Vineyard and many artists and artisans make their homes here, selling their distinctive artwork and goods in the local galleries and shops.
As you’d expect from an island, seafood is what Vineyard restaurants do best, with much of the seafood served in the evening coming fresh from fishing boats that same morning. Many restaurants maintain a great ‘farm to table’ relationship with the local farmers too so you can be assured that everything is fresh and local.
