I spent most of my summers growing up visiting Martha’s Vineyard, a small island off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Hop a ferry from the mainland and in less than an hour you’ll be in one of the islands two main ports. It’s an idyllic New England summer escape and one that has left a truly lasting impression on me.
It’s a place full of memories, days spent on the beach, diving into the ocean from the infamous jumping bridge, eating ice cream and the smell of fresh fudge. It brings back so many emotions, I can’t help but smile.
I recently revisited the island as an adult and all those feelings came rushing back, all those smells were there, the same beaches, the same breakfasts. Except, it was even better. Suddenly I was interested in all the amazing boutique hotels, the delicious restaurants that are serving up top quality food, and the plethora of shopping there is to be had.
Now when I think of Martha’s Vineyard I don’t immediately think of flying horses and fudge, I think of charcuterie and plush beds, whisky bars and mudslides. I think of the grown-up version of Martha’s Vineyard instead.
