Summer Bucket List for Martha’s Vineyard
Martha’s Vineyard has been one of the top summer getaways in all of the U.S. since the 19th century, and it’s not hard to see why. The beauty and splendor of the New England coast’s “Outer Lands” are epitomized by this sand-rimmed island, yours to call your own—at least for a little while— as a guest of ours here at the Edgar Hotel Martha’s Vineyard.
Summer Touring and R&R on Martha’s Vineyard
From its charming seaside towns to its rolling countryside, Martha’s Vineyard still casts an incomparable spell. With the Edgar Hotel Martha’s Vineyard as your friendly, boutique, wellappointed spring board, you’re all set up to drink deep of the island’s iconic summer pleasures. There are the beaches, first and foremost: beaches of diverse character, from the calm, placid strands of the north to the surf-pounded majesty of the south shore. Your guest room or suite at the Edgar Hotel Martha’s Vineyard puts you nice and close to some of the most sought-after sands on the island, including Katama Beach to the south and broad, piercingly beautiful East (or Leland) Beach on Chappaquiddick, on the far eastern edge of Martha’s Vineyard. Hunt for shells, take a dip, cast for striped bass, watch the sunrise (or the sunset, depending on which side of the island you’re touring): A day at the beach on Martha’s Vineyard checks all the boxes. There’s much more to outdoor recreation and leisure on Martha’s Vineyard than the beaches alone. There are miles of bike paths, hiking trails, and overland dune roads to explore, and extensive protected spaces such as nearby Sheriff’s Meadow Sanctuary, Caroline Tuthill Preserve, Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, and Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge that evoke the older, wilder side of the island. Historic landmarks are a dime a dozen on Martha’s Vineyard, meanwhile, and with accommodations at the Edgar Hotel you’re close to some of the best-known—not least the many wood-frame buildings of the Edgartown Harbor Village Historic District, which includes the Old Whaling Church and other stunning examples of Greek Revival style. The island’s also celebrated for its photogenic lighthouses, including the Edgartown Harbor Light and Cape Poge Lighthouse not far from our hotel. You can also go golfing, attend the delicious Big Chili Contest, hop your way between Jaws filming sites (such as the “Jaws Bridge”), and—of course—sample the delights of our very own on-site hotel restaurant the Town Bar & Grill, which includes a summertime outdoor beer garden.
