By the time you get here, you will have been on every mode of transportation known to man. The only way to get here from the mainland is by ferry or by air. We are seven miles off the coast of Massachusetts. But when you get here, you’ll know why you came. Picture beaches that have clean, clear ocean water, superb fishing, fresh air, and an abundance of nature trails, bike paths, etc. It’s like stepping back in time. We have no traffic lights, highest speed limit is 45 mph, no highways and no malls. Come, relax and recharge your batteries.
