The Benefits of Off Season Travel: Martha's Vineyard

MARTHA'S VINEYARD, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 27, 2013) - During the summer, visitors flock to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard for its fine beaches and a glimpse of its rich and famous residents. If you'd like to avoid the crowds, you can learn more about the benefits of off season travel with Marriott's new infographic. You'll love learning a better time to visit Martha's Vineyard for a slower, quieter alternative.

When the summer bustle recedes following Labor Day, Martha's Vineyard returns to 'island time.' September travelers enjoy that special island feeling when time seems to slow down and batteries are recharged. The sun still shines, and the colder days of autumn are still weeks away. The island's natural beauty takes center stage, from unspoiled beaches to calm meadows and striking sea cliffs.

Edgartown, once home to wealthy whaling captains, is known for its elegance and New England charm. Those arriving by island ferry find themselves in Vineyard Haven, a great place to watch the sailboats come and go in the harbor. Other popular sights include five historic lighthouses, three of which still send out their beams to guide ships at sea.

It should come as no surprise, given the island's ties to the sea and its upscale reputation, that the dining options are superb. And with the summer crowds gone, September visitors find it easier to enjoy a more authentic experience during this shoulder season. Ready to join them?
