You can capture some spectacular lighthouse pictures on Martha's Vineyard.

The Vineyard has 5 lighthouses that some say are the most diverse group of lighthouses within close proximity to each other.

Visitors to the Island have the ability to see all of these lighthouses in one day without feeling rushed.

Bonus !...The lighthouses are available for wedding rentals. Receptions are not allowed but you may hold the ceremony at a lighthouse.
