You need to drive to Menemsha just to enjoy the historic nature of this marina. Walk the whole area, enjoy the boats, eat fresh fish from the Fish Market, just nothing like it.

We visited the fish market during a tour. The tour guide highly recommended this place. The owner treated us to chowder and a lobster roll. The kids got to hold live lobsters. They are very warm and inviting to tourists.
