13 and board  (1 Answer)

Hi, I have a place in the campgrounds. My 13 1/2 year old granddaughter is here for 8 10 days and I would like to find something besides shop and beach to do with her or for her to do. I don't know if there are any local lessons like in wind surfing provided through any schools etc. I know I can pay for the 95 per hour but I was just hoping. Thank you Dawn

Getting to Martha's Vineyard from Boston  (2 Answers)

Hello:

I apologize if this has been asked before. I am trying to figure out the best way to get from Boston to Martha's Vineyard, leaving on a Monday in August from downtown Boston and returning to Logan airport on the following Monday, August 22nd. We will be traveling with our children who are 9 and 14. Here are my questions:

I have done some research and know that we can take the Peter Pan bus. Will that get us close to one of the ferries? I see that there are more than one ferry--Island Queen and Steamship Authority. Is one better than the other? Do any of them take passenger reservations? Is the Steamship Authority the only one that takes cars? Is it worth getting onto the waiting list for our car? Our plan is to rent a car once we are on the Vineyard because we apparently waited too long to get a vehicle registration.

We know we could also rent a car for a one way rental from Boston to the ferry. That would likely be a hassle, though.

The limo service is very, very expensive.

Are there any other options?

We were hoping to check out downtown Falmouth before we go across on the ferry, but would presumably need to take a cab, then, to get to the ferry. Are there cabs available? We do not have to do this part if it is too much of a hassle.

Thank you very much.

Getting there from NYC - optimal balance of hassle and price?  (6 Answers)

Hi guys,

I'm going for one weekend for a wedding. There seems to be dozens of options, ranging from just surprisingly expensive to a month's rent expensive. I'm worried that train to bus to boat will take forever and get stuck in traffic and be stressful, but flights are like400 a person. There's a220 boat that goes the whole way? That still sounds really expensive to me, but at least no traffic?

I would really really appreciate some advice.

Thanks!

Day trip/fly-in to Martha's Vineyard  (2 Answers)

Hi all

I'm heading up to Martha's Vineyard soon with some friends for a day trip/brunch and then back home again.

I think we'll have all of 3 (maybe 4) hours on the ground. Other than dipping our toes in the water (and having brunch!) is there anything fairly close to the airport we could check out before heading back (or, local specialties we should try to eat/bring home with us). Cute little shops to check out, etc...

many thanks.
