Here are some unique engagement proposal ideas and romantic ways to get engaged.

Martha's Vineyard is a very romantic place and many folks visit for a charming get-away with their significant other.

Many guys will choose the Vineyard to propose to their girlfriend. I proposed to my wife on Nantucket, an island very similar to Martha's Vineyard and about 25 miles away. Islands offer so many creative and romantic ways to get engaged. Here are some ideas...

Romantic Ways to Get Engaged

  • At a Lighthouse - the lighthouses on Martha's Vineyard (and other parts of the world) are great places to propose. Plan a walk with your girlfriend and end up at a lighthouse. Bring a picnic basket with wine and cheese and grapes. If allowed, climb the lighthouse and propose while admiring the view at the top.

  • On a Ferry Boat Ride - the excitement, scenery and fresh air on a ferry boat combine for a romantic and exciting place to propose. You could stand at the bow of the boat (a favorite romance scene in many movies) and pop the question. Doing this at night, under the moon and stars, makes this even more romantic.

  • While Canoeing - you can go for a canoe ride with your girlfriend. Bring wine and crackers and stop to float in the middle of the pond or lake. Do this at sunrise, sunset or under the moonlight.

  • Watching a Sunset - Go to the beach, a mountaintop, a meadow, a park or someplace to view a sunset.

  • While Sailing - Sailboats are beautiful at full sail and can be a very romantic place to propose.

Places to Propose

Here are some romantic places to get engaged on Martha's Vineyard...

  • On a Tall Ship - The founder of the famous Black Dog Tavern is also the Captain of a 108 ft square topsail schooner the Shenandoah. The ship is beautiful at full sail and can be a very romantic place to propose.

  • On the Flying Horses Carousel - The flying horse carousel in Oak Bluffs is not your typical carousel. It has great history and charm and a game in which riders grab brass rings as they ride around. As you are riding and grabbing brass rings, pull the engagement ring out and propose.

  • The Beach Cliffs in Aquinnah - The colorful clay cliffs in Aquinnah (Gay Head) are famous and are spectacular. This is a beautiful place for a walk or a picnic and an opportunity to propose.
