    The walk up water street is the epitome of Martha's Vineyard. The lighthouse didn't disappoint. So pretty, calm, relaxing once you're out there.  more »

    So lovely! Really nice paths out to the lighthouse. Nice to see all the bricks with names on them. Plenty of fishermen all around and boats coming in and out. Just scenic and New England feeling!  more »
