It was a pleasant short stop with great views and history! The area is nice to walk around and just relax.

Not much to be said for this lighthouse. Pretty boring. You can't go inside or anything. Good for a couple extra pictures, that's about it.

This is a pretty lighthouse, very close to UPPER Main Street in Vineyard Haven in a very nice residential area. Needless to say, the views are magnificent and the lighthouse with its adjacent lightkeeper's house is just lovely.

The West Chop Lighthouse is on private property so you can only see from the road. With that said the area is beautiful and a lovely place to ride bicycles and take in the lighthouse. The streets are shaded, roads relatively flat, and seeing the lighthouse is a bonus.

Near Vineyard Haven, this lighthouse is another place you can go to in Martha's vineyard. However, you can't go inside, it's government-manned lighthouse.

Come here on a clear sunset night, I was taken aback with the romantic, serene feel of this place. You want to just linger...kids can run around freely and make friends. Take your camera for sure.

While I love seeing this light, take a car to see it. The light is owned by the UCG and no tours are available. The bus will be around every 1.5 hours.

My wife and I spend a long weekend there last october. The house is old but in decent shape. My big problem was the bathroom, it needs some TLC, or even better gut it. Property is right on the ocean. We had a great time visiting the various towns that make up Marthas Vineyard.
