Enjoy the Journey

The fun doesn’t have to wait until you reach your destination! Take in the beautiful scenery on your drive to Massachusetts and, if you’re traveling in autumn, you certainly won’t want to miss the famous fall foliage. With so much to see on the way, it will make the drive go by just like that! To start your journey off on the right foot, we highly recommend taking the Long Island Ferry to avoid the stress of navigating the freeway.

Visit Martha’s Vineyard

A mini-getaway… within your getaway? That’s right! Take a fabulous day trip to Martha’s Vineyard while you’re here in Falmouth. An unforgettable local landmark, the island is home to three adorable villages with charming decor, unique shops, and a rich vibrant history to explore. Shuttle busses are available for transportation between the villages and all are worth a visit if you have the time. For the truly adventurous, the clay cliffs of Aquinnah, MA are truly a sight to behold. Though it’s a more remote destination than the three villages, the stunning natural formations and vivid colors make for utterly breathtaking views! Don’t forget to request a Palmer House picnic basket for a delicious seaside lunch.
