Marthas Vineyard: Offseason

After we visited Plymouth, we headed further south to Marthas Vineyard. We were there during it's offseason so much of the island was dead. During the offseason there are only about 15,000 people on the island, but when summer rolls around that number can increase to 100,000. It was fascinating to see. This is where the rich come to vacation and most of the island remains period appropriate. The homes and shops are beautiful, but without the modern stylings and technology. A vacation on Marthas Vineyard would truly be a time to get away.
Martha's Vineyard is an island located south of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, known for being an affluent summer colony. Often called just "The Vineyard," the island has a land area of 87.48 square miles and is the 58th largest island in the United States, and the third largest on the East Coast of the United States. It is also the largest island not connected to mainland by a bridge or tunnel on the East Coast of the United States.
