how much is it to park our car on the mainland and should we

My husband and I are making our first trip to this area and we were wondering if we really need a car on the island or should we just park on the mainland - woodshole and just passenger it without car.

Also, now much does it cost to park on the mainland?

We are only staying 3 nights there.

Thanks,

Blaroo

Costs vary depending on which ferry you'll be taking and which lot. Generally, expect to pay $10-$12 per calendar day.

As for whether or not you should take a car over: What dates are you visiting? If it's not a super busy time of the year, having a car is nice. The island is approximately 100 sq. miles, taking 45 minutes to drive from Oak Bluffs to Aquinnah. There is lots to see and do. On the other hand, it's also nice to be here without a car. Depending on where you stay, most restaurants and activities may be located within walking distance. Not having to think about the car or drive can be a vacation within it's self.
