Start at the amazing town of Oak Bluffs (once known as Cottage City) where you will learn about the Methodist Campgrounds and their history of bringing tourism to MV.
Next, travel through Vineyard Haven (also known as Tisbury), the oldest port of 200 years, and hear about the hardships of living on an island devastated by fire in 1888 and ransacked by General Grey in 1778.
See the beautiful vistas of rolling hills and ancient stone walls as you make your way to the western side. Learn about the af/am heritage and how the island became a stop on the underground railroad.
Hear about the indigenous peoples of Martha's Vineyard and how Thomas Mayhew converted the Native Americans to Christianity.
After this, the south shore and two sounds blanket the island and have a gorgeous chain of islands called the Elizabeth Islands that have an amazing history of their own. Watch a screen that shows what certain sites looked like in the 1800s to get a better view of how the area has evolved.
Don't forget the movie JAWS, there will be many sites to see where all the scenes from the movie were filmed. End the tour with a gift bag including maps, guides, coupons, and handmade trinkets. There are plenty of opportunities for photos and much more.
