lakeerieshore said: Vacationing on Cape Cod and want to visit either Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, but only have time for one. Do you have a recommendation?

I have never been to Martha’s Vineyard so I cannot recommend it. But I can heartily recommend Nantucket! I have been told by people more knowledgeable than I that the Vineyard is largely indistinguishable from the mainland Cape, so I would imagine Nantucket would be preferable given you will be spending the rest of your vacation out there. Keep me posted on the results!

Yes, they’re Vans Authentics. A great relatively inexpensive option for sailing, actually—fast drying and grippy. I’d say they run true to size. I wear a 9.5 in most sneakers/running shoes, and take the same size in the Authentics.
