The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Enjoy the Off-season in Martha’s Vineyard


4. Insider’s Tip

The Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary at sunset.  

Every full moon in October, November, and December, naturists from the Massachusetts Audubon Society—New England’s largest nature conservation group—lead a stroll through Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, a four-mile loop of woodlands, salt marshes, and meadows. The group ends up at Sengekontacket Pond, where they observe the sights and sounds of the unspoiled landscape, occasionally spotting a barn owl or otter on the prowl. Show up for the next one on October 29, but plan on leaving the flashlight at home: the entire walk takes place under the moon’s glow.
