Take a Vacation to Martha’s Vineyard During the Winter

Did you know that when you plan a winter trip to Martha’s Vineyard you get an island vacation all to yourself? Although most people plan to visit the island during the summer season, the winter is also a wonderful time to stay in Martha’s Vineyard. You will certainly enjoy a far more relaxed pace. There are also a great deal of incredible restaurants that are open on a year-round basis. As an added bonus, it costs a lot less to stay at a hotel or local inn. The bottom line is that you can see Martha’s Vineyard in a whole new light during the winter months. 

However, it makes sense to plan ahead. There are fewer ferries going to and from Martha’s Vineyard during the winter because it's a less popular time of year to visit the island. The good news is that the Steamship Authority does provide service on a year-round basis. Besides relaxing by a roaring fire at your hotel or inn and eating delicious meals, there are plenty of things to do on the island. For example, you can spend the day at one of the many famous Martha’s Vineyard beaches. You may not end up going in the water, but the views are spectacular, and the sand is still soft. As an added bonus, you’ll pretty much have the beach to yourself. 

You can also hit the trails and do some hiking. The many trails are open during the winter months. In essence, they provide an incredible landscape that’s just as beautiful but different then it is in the summer season. The hiking trails in Martha’s Vineyard are perfect for hikers of every skill level, so, even if you’re a beginner, you’ll be comfortable during your outdoor winter adventure. 

The alpaca farm is also open during the winter. It’s home to over 40 friendly adult alpacas and there are some baby alpacas as well. If you’re bringing children with you on your vacation, they will love this place. If you’re looking for an indoor activity, the Martha’s Vineyard Museum is also open on a year-round basis. You will learn about the rich history of the islands and see some rare maritime relics.

The winter months are a great time to take a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, and MV Auto Rental would like to make your trip even better for you by providing a wide range of automobile rental selections. You’re definitely going to want to have access to a vehicle in order to get around the island, and we can help.
