Oak Bluffs- Martha's Vineyard, MA
This past weekend we made our first trip to Martha's Vineyard to enjoy our summer afternoon. The traffic from Boston to Cape Cod was brutal but once we finally got to the ferry it was all worth it, as there was hardly a cloud in the sky and just a nice breeze. We took the Steamship Authority ferry from Wood’s Hole in Falmouth to Oaks Bluffs which costs $16 for a round trip. The two main Steamship Authority ferry's travel to either Oaks Bluffs or Vineyard Haven, rotating destination with every departure. Parking near the ferry is a bit pricey with private lots around $50 per day. However there are signs directing traffic to lots that are less than 10 minutes away with a shuttle bus that brings you directly to the ferry. With that in mind, we recommend you get there a good time before your ferry's departure to accommodate any delays with the shuttles or parking. If you are planning on bringing your car on the ferry, reservations need to be made well in advance.
