Attractions

MARTHA’S VINEYARD MUSEUM

Situated in the historic district of Edgartown, the Martha's Vineyard Museum is the island's largest repository of cultural artifacts, historic photographs, archival accounts and genealogical records. Maintained by the Martha's Vineyard Historical Society, this distinguished and important museum brings the island's vibrant history to life. Please see the Hotel Concierge for more information, including directions to the museum.

THEATER

"The Fabulists" are an engaging troupe of Vineyard Playhouse actors and writers who perform entertaining adaptations and fresh, original acts for children every Saturday during the summer. Audience participation is highly encouraged, so make sure your kids are ready for their "close up."

FELIX NECK WILDLIFE SANCTUARY

With four miles of unspoiled trails featuring leafy green woodlands, rolling grassy meadows, natural spring ponds and a naturally-occurring "barrier beach," the Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary is an "open-air classroom," where lovers of nature can celebrate the beauty of this remarkable island.

MYTOI GARDEN

Located within the pine forest of Chappaquiddick - and easily reached from anywhere on Chappy - this Japanese-Style garden is like a stroll thorough serenity.

COLONIAL EDGARTOWN

Take a walk back through time along quaint tree-lined streets, white picket fences, and imposing mansions built by sea captains of yore.

POLLY HILL ARBORETUM

Named in honor of famed horticulturalist Polly Hill, this botanical garden - specifically devoted to trees - devotes over twenty acres of land to approximately 1700 fascinating species.

UP-ISLAND STONEWALLS

Originally serving as boundary markers, these man-made structures stand in beautiful contrast to the rolling hills and ocean views along the scenic byways of West Tisbury and Chilmark.

MARTHA'S VINEYARD LAND BANKS & OPEN SPACES

Attention hiking, biking and nature fans: the island's land banks and open spaces are flush with mile upon mile of scenic trails, natural spring ponds and open, grassy fields just begging for a kite-fly or a game of fetch.

FLYING HORSES CAROUSEL

Designated as a National Historic Landmark - and proudly holding the title of America's oldest "platform carousel" - The Flying Horses were handcrafted with real horsehair and genuine leather saddles in 1876, and made the journey to Martha's Vineyard in 1884. With a picturesque location in the heart of Oak Bluffs, this treasured carousel continues a century-old tradition of bringing joy to the children of tourists and residents alike. 

GINGERBREAD HOUSES

The Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, located in the town center of Oak Bluffs, offers visitors a colorful and curious "tableau." Here, hundreds of charming and vibrant gingerbread cottages adorn the local landscape - arguably the finest collective example of Carpenter Gothic style architecture on earth.

Adding to the allure of this magical place is the settlement's famous Tabernacle, an imposing structure that served for roughly thirty years (1835 - 65) as a gathering place reserved for Methodist Revivalist Meetings. Famous visiting dignitaries include Harriet Beecher Stowe and President Ulysses 5. Grant.
