I will be going to Martha's Vineyard soon and am very excited! We will be staying in Edgartown. I have heard that Martha's Vineyard can be pretty expensive. What restaurants, etc. do you suggest that aren't terribly expensive but have good food and a nice atmosphere? We will have access to a kitchen, so if you know of any great markets, I do enjoy cooking some too.
We have been told that we would be fine without a car since we will be staying close to transportation. I know that some routes don't run in October. I've been trying to study the bus map, but do you know if it's possible to get to all/any of the lighthouses without a car? How about the beautiful cliffs? Do you think not having a car would be hard on someone who has trouble walking long distances?
On my list so far are the gingerbread houses, tabernacle, and carousel at Oak Bluffs, the lighthouse and the beach at Edgartown and if possible the Aquinnah Cliffs. What else do you recommend?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
