Now that it’s August, all we can think about is our next (last?) summer escape. Are you still dreaming of perfect beach towns, bikini weather and a bit of nature, too? If so, and if you’re in the general vicinity (or own a private jet) consider…

 Martha’s Vineyard!

 This small island off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts is as quaint as it gets. With beautiful port towns, woodsy, windy roads, and miles of beaches, Martha’s Vineyard is one of the best summer escapes on the Atlantic. If and when you go, don’t miss…

 Farmers Markets: One of the best parts about leaving the city (any city) is eating like a country girl. Fresh fruits and vegetables, small batch jams and pickles, and homemade, still-warm-from-the-oven pastries are staples at the islands farm stands and markets.

 Beaches: Martha’s Vineyard has fantastic beaches with rolling dunes and (surprising for the New England) clear water. We love South Beach on the southeastern shore for a day of fun/sun.

 Edgartown: This is “downtown” Martha’s Vineyard. You’ll find bars and restaurants, great shopping and plenty to see. One of our favorite things to do is grab a drink at one of the many dockside bars and watch the yachts come and go from the beautiful harbor.

 Bottom Line: Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect summertime escape on an idyllic little island far from the scratch and claw of urban living. Meet us there?
