On this bike tour, you stay three nights at the newly renovated Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, Massachusetts, where your premier room is in the historic main building.
This tour has everything! On the Cape you follow beach roads and a beautiful bike path as you weave your way past salt marshes, cranberry bogs, bird sanctuaries, barrier beaches and tidal flats filled with egrets, geese and ducks.
A scenic ferry ride takes you to Martha’s Vineyard and elegant Edgartown, a colonial seaport with rows of handsome 18th-century homes. Cycle to Katama with its beautiful barrier beach, and to historic West Tisbury. Plus, visit Vineyard Haven, ride past historic West Chop Light and ride “up island” to the spectacular lookout at Aquinnah Cliffs. Enjoy a picnic at a sculpture garden and visit the picturesque village of Menemsha, where we bike down to the harbor and stroll along the beach. From near the hotel, there's a 2-minute ferry ride to Chappaquiddick. And don't miss cycling along a beautiful bike path to Oak Bluffs. Here we explore famous labyrinthine streets lined with fanciful rainbow-colored gingerbread cottages and visit the town’s antique Flying Horses Carousel before returning to the inn.
Our two inns are the best! On the Cape you stay at the charming Palmer House Inn perfectly situated in the tree-lined historic district of Falmouth. And in Edgartown, you enjoy the wonderful rooms at the Harbor View Hotel where you can look out past the Edgartown Lighthouse and Chappaquiddick Island. From here, you can enjoy walking the narrow streets of this former whaling seaport with its handsome 18th-century houses and white picket fences, as well as high-end boutiques and art galleries.
