Even though there is so much to do down-Island, I highly suggest sprinkling in some up-Island adventures. It can feel like a whole different world when you cross that West Tisbury town line.

Menemsha is one of those magic places on Martha’s Vineyard. It’s a quaint fishing village in the northwest end of Chilmark, where it meets Vineyard Sound. There is a picturesque harbor, and a beautiful sandy, public beach. Picnicking is a way of life in Menemsha, and especially in-season, there are several classic seafood shacks that add […]

Before moving to Martha’s Vineyard, I was a frequent visitor to Philadelphia’s First Fridays. Downtown was a sea of artists, food vendors, music, and more. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the city.
