Falmouth, Vineyard and the ferry between them offer variety of fun activities, stunning vistas

Whether you’re going for the day, the weekend or a long vacation, Martha’s Vineyard is an enchanting place to visit – and the best way to get there is on board the Island Queen. The ferry leaves from Falmouth, a lively seaside town with great beaches, bike trails, shops and restaurants. After exploring the town, park just 200 yards from the dock and board the ferry, sitting in the enclosed lounge or outside decks to enjoy the breathtaking views. Thirty-five minutes later, you’re in Oak Bluffs! Visit that town’s famous carousel and gingerbread houses, explore the island by bike (you can bring yours on the ferry – pets, too!), by sail, by bus tour or by foot. See the red cliffs at Aquinnah and the whaling captains’ homes in Edgartown.
