2013 BEST Diversion, Martha's Vineyard

Cape Poge Lighthouse Tour

A narrow beach used to connect Chappa-quiddick to Martha’s Vineyard, but the sea breached the divide in 2007, and a 300-yard channel now separates thetwo. Don’t let that deter you. Take the ferry from Edgartown and spend a day exploring “Chappy,” which boasts 1,000 acres of preservation land. Sign up for the Cape Poge Lighthouse Tour, and a guide will pick you up at the ferry, drive you along the beach, and take you up into the lighthouse for sweeping views of the area.
