There its a whole section of this site dedicated to things to do so will point thou there as well as the many websites. if staying in. town, then may not need car.otherwise suggest getting one or two.
Are you staying at an inn or a private home? Do you want to spend time on the beach? Normally I wouldn't recommend a car but with the number of people you have it may be easier & cheaper, especially if you want to go to Menemsha (lobsters and sunset) or Aquinnah (light house & cliffs) Other things to do: visit Oak Bluffs and the Gingerbread Cottages, if you have kids (even if you don't) visit the carousel. South Beach in Edgartown has great waves, State Beach on the road between Oak Bluffs & Edgartown is calm and warm. You can also rent bikes & go over to Chappaquiddick ( 5 minute ferry ride from Edgartown) or take a tour with the NRT:
Thank you both for your suggestions. We will be staying in a private home so we were thinking about renting bikes and taking public transit would be easiest. I am not sure how close the home is to public transit, which may also effect this decision.
Kendrick, Thank you for the activity suggestions!
