It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Martha's Vineyard

Peak Season: June to September

The summer is Martha’s Vineyard’s “it” season, with the population increasing by 87-percent and prices skyrocketing nearly 30-percent. Book hotels at least three months in advance and reserve top restaurants two weeks in advance. Temperatures average in the high 70s.

Off Season: December to March

Things slow down considerably during the winter when vacationers return to mainland life and temperatures drop into the 30s. Although some places close, the majority of establishments stay open and considerable discounts can be had on hotels.

Sweet Spot: April to May; October to November

Spring and especially Fall are great times to see the Vineyard without the crowds and the stratospheric prices. With the temperature fluctuating between 50 and 60 degrees, the beaches are often warm enough for swimming (or at least sunbathing).
