Edgartown is a vacation destination in Duke County, Massachusetts, located on Martha’s vineyard — an island south of Cape Cod. You can visit its pristine beaches, upscale boutiques, and fine dining, making it an ideal location for a day trip.

South Beach

South Beach is open to the general public and free of charge. With soft, golden sand, visitors may enjoy relaxing on the beach, building a wondrous sandcastle, or striking up a game of beach volleyball with family, friends, or other visitors. Pack a picnic and make a day of your beach trip.

Edgartown Lighthouse

As soon as you enter the harbor, you’ll see the Edgartown Lighthouse. It’s a small lighthouse that goes to show you that big things really do come in small packages. If you have the time, climb the lighthouse and look out at the spectacular view of the water, or better yet, take the tour.

Shopping in Edgartown

If you’re more into shopping than sightseeing and spending time in nature, Edgartown has an array of men’s and women’s shops. SLATE, for instance, is a lifestyle fashion brand with a wide selection. You’ll have to browse their selection from April through December because they’re a seasonal store.

The Terrace

The Terrace at the Charlotte Inn serves exquisite, authentic French cuisine using seasonal ingredients. Pair meals like burgundy escargots and roasted lamb chops with a glass of red or white wine.

Truthfully, you may want to make multiple day trips or extend your stay to take in everything the city has to offer.
