Victorian Homes - - Contents - BY RE­BEKAH WAHLBERG

Dis­cover the his­toric sum­mer get­away des­ti­na­tion that’s been pop­u­lar for gen­er­a­tions.

For the his­tory buff: Jour­ney back in time with a visit to any of Oak Bluff’s his­toric points of in­ter­est, in­clud­ing the Fly­ing Horses Carousel, the Taber­na­cle in Wes­leyan Grove and the clas­sic Camp­ground gin­ger­bread houses. For the sea­farer: Set sail on a fish­ing ex­pe­di­tion, rent a sail­boat for the af­ter­noon or book a re­lax­ing cruise from the Oak Bluffs har­bor. For the ad­ven­turer: Ven­ture out of Oak Bluffs and go on a trek to ex­plore the island’s hik­ing and bik­ing trails. For the movie-goer: Catch a flick at one of Martha’s Vine­yard’s clas­sic sin­gle-screen movie the­aters, The Strand in Oak Bluffs or The Ca­pa­wock in Vine­yard Haven. For the sun-bather: It wouldn’t be an island get­away without a re­lax­ing jaunt to the beach—bask in the sun­set at Men­emsha Beach or join other movie buffs at Joseph Sylvia State Beach, of Jaws in­famy.

A POP­U­LAR SUM­MER GET­AWAY DES­TI­NA­TION FOR GEN­ER­A­TIONS OF AMER­I­CANS, MARTHA’S VINE­YARD IS AN ISLAND HOST TO A WIDE VA­RI­ETY OF AT­TRAC­TIONS, WHETHER YOU’RE LOOK­ING FOR RE­LAX­ATION OR AD­VEN­TURE.
