Beach Weekend Getaway in Martha's Vineyard
Arriving into the ferry docks of Martha's Vineyard, one begins to think of presidential getaways, picture-perfect New England beaches — and of course, sharks. Not for nothing did Steven Spielberg choose this postcard vista as the backdrop for his 1975 film, Jaws, the ideal counterweight for his thriller. These days, there's nothing ominous on the resort island—at least beyond the threat of gallons of ice cream doing serious damage to your waistline. But there's plenty of biking, hiking, and other outdoor pursuits to take care of that. There's also the ever-present possibility that you'll want to cast off your mainland responsibilities and stick around for a while. It's an understandable fantasy. The Vineyard has attracted the rich, famous, and regular folk for its carefree lifestyle of flip-flops, bicycles, boats, sand, and perfect sunsets. – By Lisa Oppenheimer
