Planning to get engaged ? You may be looking for interesting places to propose...

I'm a big outdoors person...so I prefer places like the beach, mountains, lakes, and so on.

I proposed to my wife on Nantucket, a charming island similar to Martha's Vineyard, on a beach boardwalk at the base of a lighthouse.

We have some ideas for places to propose listed here. They are on Martha's Vineyard, but, many of the ideas could be used in places in other locations.

Make sure you do your homework before you purchase your engagement ring and go to Blue Nile review to make sure you are getting the best out of your purchase

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.

  • Use a Special Ice Cream Topping - Mad Martha's is a famous ice cream shop on the Vineyard. If you are fun-spirited, consider getting ice cream together. Have your girlfriend wait, you'll get the cones, and put the ring on top of hers

  • Take the Plunge while Taking a Plunge - The Memorial Bridge at the Joseph Sylvia State Beach is a popular jumping spot for folks of all ages. Ask for her hand in marriage and then celebrate together and take the leap together ! ... It's only about 15 feet above the water
