Why Visit during the Shoulder SeasonIf you want to visit Martha’s Vineyard before the summer crowds descend on the charming towns, pack your bags and plan your vacation for the off-season. Starting late fall/early winter and lasting until about May, this time of year allows you a more intimate experience. In addition to escaping the large crowds, there are other perks to visiting our Edgartown hotel during this time. Unlike during the summer, you can easily get your car onto the ferry. While there are several transportation options, we understand sometimes it’s nice to have the flexibility that comes from bringing your own vehicle along with you.
What to Do during Your VisitAs previously stated, one of the biggest perks of visiting during the shoulder season is avoiding the summer crowds. While businesses may shut down during winter, they start coming alive in spring. Just check their hours before visiting, as they may still be operating under shortened hours. There are several things to do during your visit, but here are just three options.
- Dine at incredible restaurants like Rockfish or Alchemy Bistro & Bar without dealing with long wait times.
- Take your time wandering the exhibits that fill Martha’s Vineyard Museum and not have to worry about getting out of other people’s way.
