Beach vacations east coast...

There are many beautiful spots for beach vacations along the east coast. From Florida to Maine, there are thousands of miles of coastline to explore.

We think one of the "gems" in the New England area is Martha's Vineyard.

The Vineyard is unique because it is an island and you really get a different feeling while being there. We always feel a strong sense of "getting away" during our visits.

President Barack Obama is vacationing on Martha's Vineyard and I read a quote from him where he said something like...I like the low-key atmosphere, I can skip shaving in the morning and not get any strange looks.

In addition to it's great atmosphere and "feel", the Vineyard has beautiful beaches, tremendous scenery, charming towns and villages, fabulous seafood, a large art community, and so much more.
