Becki’s Blog: Ferries to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket

Cape Cod isn’t the only place that summertime residents and seasonal visitors make their destination—Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, also known as the Islands, are just as popular as Cape Cod. Visitors near and far go to the Islands for a picturesque getaway from the hectic life back at home, whether it be in the city or suburbs. If you are a resident or visitor who often spends time at South Cape Beach or have a summer home in New Seabury, then you know Martha’s Vineyard is visible along the horizon.

When you spend the week or summer in Mashpee, or nearby towns, you should definitely make plans to go and enjoy a day or weekend on these gorgeous islands! Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect getaway for everyone, from toddlers to the elderly. Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs are charming little towns. Nantucket Island is the destination for visitors and summertime residents as well. It is rooted deep in history and is also home to various restaurants and galleries.

Right now, we still have more than two months of summer before we have to think about colder weather and shorter days. Take advantage of this wonderful summer heat and longer hours on Cape Cod by making plans to visit Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket today!
