Vineyard sightseeing actually begins when you board this island ferry with jaw-dropping views

You could say sightseeing as it relates to Martha’s Vineyard actually begins when you board the Island Queen ferry in Falmouth. The Cape and island views from the ferry’s decks are breathtaking as you sail for 35 minutes into Oak Bluffs. Once on the island, you can book a 2 1/2-hour sightseeing tour that covers the history and beauty of the island. Or, you can rent a car, Jeep or bike and explore this enchanted island, from the cobblestone streets of bustling Edgartown to the jaw-dropping red clay cliffs of Gay Head. Oak Bluffs itself has some must-see sights, including the “Flying Horses,” the oldest carousel in America, and the Campground, with multicolored Victorian gingerbread cottages.
