We rented bikes and wanted to take the ferry across and ride around. We were told by three different locals "not much to see, but the Japanese Gardens". They were correct. With two days of biking around we found the absolute rudest people on that...More

One of my favorite places on earth. Quaint, rolling country side with no commercialism. Just beautiful land and scenic views await at the end of the island. Though a bit challenging, rent a bike in Edgartown, take the Chappy Ferry across the harbor, and spend...More

A 1 minuet ferry ride and you feel miles away from bustling Edgartown. The beaches are quiet, parks empty, and the pace slower. Listen to the sounds of nature instead of children and unwind.

Been coming for 25+ yrs and have never seen it this bad or this slow - make no difference the time of day. We all agree it’s moving at about a third to half the regular pace. And asked why they take on two vehicles...More

You have to go on the Chappy Ferry if you visit Edgartown. It was made famous in the movie Jaws and is a 5 minute ride.

We hired bikes and took a ride down to the famous Dike Bridge. Probably too far to walk but a fantastic cycle on a warm day

This small island is lovely for a picnic at sunset on the beach. Bring a blanket, bottle of wine, picnic and walk across the boardwalk out to the beach. You may be the only ones on it. Lovely spot!

Many years ago we visited the original Dyke Bridge and we felt such sadness knowing the history there. Today they redid the bridge, opened up the area more and hope the history to this place goes away (in my opinion)

We rode the ferry to Chappaquiddick because we wanted to look around. We were told that the bridge was only about a miles walk, so we took off. We passed some locals walking their dogs and they informed us that the bridge was actually over...More

I brought my own. Search for Edgartown Bicycles or Wheel Happy for rentals. Most rental places can bring bikes to you if you ask
