If you’re looking for a preppy summer getaway, what better place to add to your travel bucket list than Martha’s Vineyard? The picturesque coastal town is full of historic buildings, beautiful waterfront properties, and delicious restaurants, making it a fantastic choice for families, couples, and more.
Martha’s Vineyard, often referred to by locals as The Vineyard, sits south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and is only accessible by plane or boat. The island was first inhabited by the Wampanoag people, Native Americans who called the island Noepe, which means land amid the streams. As the popularity of Martha’s Vineyard increased, so has the prestige. The cost of living on the island is roughly 60% higher than the national average, while housing prices are 96% higher.
Our beautiful nautical tide wood map clock of Martha’s Vineyard embraces the beauty of the island in an easy-to-display home décor piece. Each tide clock begins with a solid piece of hand-stained birch. Our artist use a bathymetric chart to expertly engrave the topography of the region onto the 3D wood map and then places a piece of birch that is laser-cut in the precise shape of the island’s coastline onto the wood chart’s surface. The surface of the clock is etched with points of interest, water depths, and other destinations,
What is a tide clock and how does it work? Fun facts: The lunar day is 24 hours and 50 minutes long & the moon is the biggest influence of the tides! Since there are two high tides each lunar day our tide clocks rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes. Quartz tide clocks are perfect for the more predictable tides of the Eastern United States. You can always set your tide clock by either a quick internet search for high tide in your area for the next high tide, or set it monthly at the full or new moon.
We are map geeks! So naturally we have the most detailed map Tide Clocks on the market.
