This is much more than a handy stop-over on the way to Martha's Vineyard. The dockhands were waiting for us upon arrival. We brought bikes and enjoyed biking the length of the canal-the access is literally right there at the marina. We highly recommend The Pilot House Restaurant, which has awesome indoor and outdoor dining-plenty of it-with a sunset view. There is also a beach within walking distance and it's fun to sit on the breakwater at the canal entrance and watch the boats come and go. Restrooms were super-clean and all CDC protocol is being followed. Wish we had stayed longer!
