July Fourth on Martha’s Vineyard 2009


The summer is just flying by…I’m so excited that the 4th of July is this weekend! There’s always so much to do on the Vineyard to celebrate our country…

  • If you live in New York City, you have to check this out. For the weekend of the fourth only, the New England Fast Ferry is running a boat from the City to the Vineyard. It departs on July 2 and returns on July 5.
  • Check out the clam bake in Menemsha if you’re up-island – hang out on the beach and enjoy great food from the Homeport restaurant. There’s usually some good music going on as well. Very kid friendly!
  • Of course, there are always the fantastic parade and fireworks in Edgartown! (and a barbecue at the Old Whaling Church)

We still have some great vacation rentals available all over the island…there’s nothing like a last minute adventure to Martha’s Vineyard – and your very own cookout complete with fresh island lobster, maybe a raw bar, greens and roasted potatoes from a local farm stand. Don’t forget the sparklers!
