Destination: Martha's Vineyard
Stately lighthouses, gorgeous coastline, natural history, and possibly Jake Gyllenhaal. "The Vineyard", as the cool kids call it, is accessible by either land or air only. No roller skate path from the mainland.

Seven miles off the coast of the Massachusetts coast, Martha’ Vineyard offers a unique vacation ambiance. The island is composed of several different villages, which range in flavor from Sophisticated Preppy to Taffy & Fudge-eating Day-Trippers. The Vineyard offers something for everyone, but do keep in mind that a significant portion of it is "Dry".
The beaches are entirely unspoiled, natural stretches, that roll up from the surf into wavy grasses. If you saw Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson in "Something's Gotta Give" - even though that was the Hamptons, it's that kind of beach. Don't you just want to pack up the picnic basket right now?
