2023 Best Family-Friendly Activity, Martha's Vineyard

The Barn Bowl & Bistro

Great food and “bowling for everyone,” as its mission states (pop-up rails, please!), make the Barn Bowl & Bistro an ideal hangout for families with kids of all ages, especially on those days when the island’s socked in by rain. And unlike most bowling alleys, you won’t find any tacky Formica lounge furniture here — just comfy sofas and even a place for an ice bucket. This is the Vineyard, after all.
