Chappaquiddick is a small island just barely off the coast of Martha's Vineyard. The chappy ferry transports people, cars and bicycles across the approximate 500 feet from Edgartown.
While Chappy, as it's known to locals, is a wonder of natural beauty, it is likely most renown for the bizarre and unfortunate Ted Kennedy incident back in 1969.
The Kennedys had been attending the Edgartown Regatta for years and they were known for throwing celebration parties. Unfortunately, following the party in 1969, Senator Kennedy was driving a young lady home when he took a wrong turn and drove the car off the side of a bridge in the Chappaquiddick incident.
The Chappy Store has milk, soda, beer, sandwiches and a few other items but is NOT a complete supermarket.
Chappaquiddick consists primarily of wildlife preserves, beaches and private homes.
Visit for the beauty and serenity...do not expect tourist shops, fancy restaurants or a selection of activities.
