only 3 days on Martha's Vineyard in early October - what to see and do?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a 3 night weekend getaway at Martha's Vineyard in early October this year. We've never been, newbies to the area. Looking for suggestions as to what to see and do. We realize that Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Boston are all points of interest as well. With only three nights to spend we want to choose well!

As to our tastes:

Wife loves to browse shops, and we both enjoy exploring restaurants, so she'd probably be happy if we never left the island. I'm sure we'll rent bikes for at least an afternoon, exploring the island (or at least our end of it in the Oak Bluffs vicinity) that way. We love to walk in beautiful outdoor surroundings, so I'm sure we'll want to take in a nature preserve. We'll want to take a walk along a pretty beach somewhere as well. We're not really into nightlife stuff. Historical attractions are fine if they happen to be there, but are not a major attraction to us. We've done whale watching in Maine, so in this short 3 day time span that won't be on the list. Deep sea fishing is a maybe.

I realize there are fifteen towns along Cape Cod. Ideally, we'd like to take one day to explore there. And I've heard Boston is a must-see. But with the limited time we have, I'm not sure we can even come close to doing a visit there justice--maybe we can spend a day or afternoon there if we choose a couple select points of interest?

Nantucket sounds fun too, but from what I'm reading it sounds like Martha's Vineyard is similar enough such that MV alone will suffice. We'll probably visit Nantucket in the future.

Anyway, any suggestions you all might have as to which things to see and do in just three days--with such a wealth of choices--will be greatly appreciated!

(Suggestions for nature preserves, beach walks, favorite MV shops and restaurants, Cape towns, and Boston attractions will be particularly helpful. Thanking you in advance!)
