More Harbingers of Spring on the Vineyard – Carousel & Chesca’s
It’s not just the daffodils or the re-opening of our Martha’s Vineyard hotel rooms in the Main Wing that herald the coming of spring. One of our favorite harbingers of the coming season is the resumed operations of our island’s own historic treasure – The Flying Horses Carousel in Oak Bluffs. It opens this weekend.
According to the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation website, the carousel is the nation’s oldest platform carousel and has been designated by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a national landmark. Constructed in 1876 by Charles Dare, it is one of only two Dare carousels still in existence.
Originally operated as a Coney Island, NY amusement, it was moved to Oak Bluffs in 1884, where it has lived in its red barn, delighting generations of Island residents and visitors ever since. Look for our Facebook Friday Deal this week for a special involving the carousel.
Another “big deal” spring opening is the re-emergence of one of Egartown’s favorite restaurants – Chesca’s. Located right here at the Square, Chesca’s is a ‘must stop’ for every visitor. The menu features Island favorites and fresh seafood, and includes a mix of traditional and more contemporary Italian cuisine.
Described as “bridging the gap between upscale and comfort” foods, Chesca’s also features a wonderful and varied wine lists and classic cocktails. They re-open April 12 for dinner Thur-Sun, closed Mon, Tues, Wed. Serving 5.30-9:00 pm. Visit Chesca’s website.
