February 2012

An Uncommon Sight As I drove up State Road in Vineyard Haven, I saw something I never expected to see at the end of February, a line of people outside waiting to get Mexican take-out.  Apparently I was not the only one super excited about the prospect of La Choza and its burritos, or perhaps it […]


With the days staying lighter longer, and the crocuses and daffodils in bloom at the Edgartown Library, you can feel Edgartown starting to wake from it’s mini-hibernation.  Sprucing up for the Summer has begun in a number of stores. Alchemy has opened back up. And sunny days are a reason once again, to walk to […]


People ask us all the time, “What’s there to do on Martha’s Vineyard in the off season?” My On Point Blog collegaue Guinevere Cramer has been exploring that question in a number of posts this winter for all our off-island friends.

It seems as though there is even more to add to the growing list of changes in Vineyard Haven.  In addition to another place to grab a bite to eat, and the opening date of La Choza, it is also rumored that soon downtown will have new street poles, new benches (good for people watching), […]


Though we may not have as many restaurants open, and there are no Target stores to get lost in for hours, we definitely have ways to have a little fun and enjoy a little retail therapy.  No ferry reservations required! Martha’s Vineyard has a vibrant year round community, and we are pretty creative with ways […]
