Martha’s Vineyard is an ideal place to escape the cities of Boston or New York for a relaxing getaway with a small town feel. The tiny island has a plethora of vacation rentals, restaurants and beaches, but Oak Bluffs is the best of them all.
Why stay in Oak Bluffs?
Some of the other towns on the island are dry towns and don’t really have as much to offer. Oak Bluffs gives you options, particularly if you find a vacation rental that is within walking distance to the downtown. Renting a vacation rental here gives you the opportunity to grill out and enjoy the yard as well as the beach while still having the options to go into town.
The vacation rental featured here was a great option with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, comfortably sleeping 10 people. The yard is humungous and the home is very well kept with everything you could need in the kitchen and even has WiFi.

Oak Bluffs downtown
The downtown area of Oak Bluffs offers bars, restaurants and a variety of shops. You can also rent mopeds or bicycles to take a trip around the island. Renting a moped is quite cheap and lets you get to go out and explore some of the winding roads outside of the city.
Getting to the Vineyard
There are ferries from multiple ports to get to the Vineyard. The Island Queen is a good option with relatively cheap parking and only $20 round trip for the ferry. This also drops you off right in the harbor of Oak Bluffs, making it very easy and quick to get to your final destination. There are always taxis in the harbor to take you to your vacation rental.
