Martha's Vineyard: more rural than you think

Tyler Pyburn | 12/13/2016

If you've ever taken a ferry over to Martha's Vineyard for a day or weekend, you could probably tell me all about the carousel in Oak Bluffs or the perfect little downtown area in Edgartown. But did you know, there is a totally different side to the Vineyard full of natural beauty?

Full disclosure, I've only been to the Vineyard two times. Both were to film a home. The first was a meticulous home a stone throw away from Edgartown center (Property 8556) and the second was an absolutely gorgeous home off the beaten path, down a dirt road. (Property 27182) It was at that second home I realized there was a whole lot more to Martha's Vineyard than just shops on the docks.

During that second video shoot, I had a lot of time left before my ferry back to Woods Hole, so I decided to take the drone out to get a view from above. The only word to use to describe what I saw, stunning.

Some of the things that the video did not show were the horse and alpaca farms that I drove past while looking for a spot to eat. Or the state forest with hundreds of trails directly next to the High School.

While there is no doubt that the Vineyard features top notch restaurants and shops but its the natural beauty that makes me want to go back even more.
