What better way to spend the 4th of July than on Martha’s Vineyard! Unfortunately, we only had a day to spend on the island. Better that than nothing, right?!
Like most visitors to the island, we took the high speed ferry which let us off at the quaint town of Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard.
Upon debarking, we made our way to Martha’s Vineyard Chowder Company for lunch. I tried my first lobster roll! #yum I had nothing to compare it with but OMG, it was so good, all buttery goodness!
Make sure you wear comfortable shoes if you’re planning to explore the island. We wore flip flops and ended up walking a mile and a half to the nearest lighthouse, East Chop Light. Our feet were on fire! We ‘ubered’ it out of there and decided to check out the town of Aquinnah, on the western end of the island, to see the Gay Head lighthouse as well. It was about a 40 minute drive to Aquinnah. The Gay Head lighthouse was much smaller than we expected but it was a fun way to see more of the island.

We caught the ferry back to Cape Cod and watched the sunset from the boat.
Thank you for the beautiful weather MV!
