Martha's Vineyard Summer Vacation | August 2018
Edgartown, Massachusetts (where we stayed)
Edgartown is a quaint beach town located on Martha's Vineyard with gorgeous homes meticulously landscaped and aligned on every block. We strolled around and discovered unique shops that fulfilled our daily walks. One thing that stood out the most about the island is the many small mom-n-pop businesses and non-existence of chain restaurants or stores (impossible to avoid when you're in NYC). We relaxed, ate lots of seafood and homemade ice cream, and enjoyed the fresh clean air. Edgartown is a place where you surely will feel that New England old America vibe and that's magical in itself.
Where we ate
Seafood Shanty Edgartown was our first stop and the view of the harbor was enough to satisfy a day. If you want to eat the freshest, largest lobster roll in the world this should be your first stop. We were greeted by the jolliest host who seated us on a perched stool with a view of water, boats and classically dressed New Englanders.
Atlantic Fish & Chop House Edgartown we ate here for dinner and we sat out on their porch with a water front view of the boats. It was calm, quiet and the tables each had candles to light the night. Our fish was prepared perfectly on white plates and the salmon and halibut are the recommended picks.
Lola's is a bustling soul food restaurant located on a pasture filled with grass in the town Oak Bluffs. At night they offer live entertainment and attract celebrities and the likes of political figures like Obama and the Clintons. The food is absolutely delicious and offers a twist on Southern cuisine. There's not one dish I wouldn't try on their menu.
Diner- Edgartown I was so excited we stumbled upon this hole in the wall diner which serves everyday food. It didn't disappoint for breakfast, and the eggs, sausages and coffee were perfect and affordable. The service was friendly and worth the visit.
