Outdoor Things To Do In Martha’s Vineyard in The Spring

The spring season is right around the corner. That means the birds will soon be singing, the sun will soon be shining brighter, and the weather will start to get warm again. It almost goes without saying that spring is a great time to visit Martha’s Vineyard. As an added bonus, the crowds won’t arrive until the summer season. That means you’ll be able to experience the island and all that it has to offer in relative peace and quiet. Besides relaxing and taking in the scenery, the following information will help you find some outdoor things to do in Martha’s Vineyard during the spring season. 

First and foremost, spring is the perfect time of year to take a nature walk. There are multiple nature preserves to see on the island that range from lush forests to peaceful fields and meadows. In fact, the pristine pastures will remind you of Martha’s Vineyard proud agricultural history. In addition, there are many miles of hiking trails to explore on the island. For example, The Trustees of Reservations, Vineyard Conservation Society, and the Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank are just a few organizations that have donated land for public use. 

If you enjoy bike rides, Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect place to partake in that activity. In fact, the island has well over 44 miles of bike paths that are great for a spring adventure. There is literally a bike path for everyone's abilities. For example, there are bike paths along the beach and bike paths through the State Forest that range from flat to steep inclines. If you enjoy the ocean and or ponds, then the island certainly has you covered. 

Although Martha’s Vineyard is famous for being a beach town during the summer months, spring presents a great opportunity to take part in watersports such as windsurfing, paddle boarding, and kayaking. You can even take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean if you’re a bit adventurous. Even if you don’t want to swim in the ocean during the spring, or prefer not to take part in watersports, the beaches in Martha’s Vineyard are still perfect for taking a walk, and simply breathing in the sea air.
