    Thank you all for the info. I like to knock on doors so we might just try the permission thing!!! Here's another question I hope no one takes the wrong way. As a LEO, sometimes (Most) I carry my off duty weapon with me. Would you recommend it, or should we be good to go? We normally vacation in south Jersey with the wife's family and I'm always carrying down that way. I don't know anything about the areas we plan on staying in near Boston. Not to worried about Martha's Vineyard though.

    I recommend you take Jr to metaldetectors.com, a new metal detecting shop in Rockland, MA

    It's just a few towns over from Braintree!

    Ok; the wife has us staying in Waltham for three days! Looks like there are plenty of parks around to hit!!! Going to Salem day one though. Guess i'll find a park on the way there and have the wife drop us off!!! I can't wait. Of course learning that state property is off limits is a downer for the Vineyard. Looks like Oak Bluffs has some neat old parks and walking trails we can hit. Thank again everyone for your input........Mike

    I am not sure if the same rules apply to LEO's outside of their jurisdiction, but I do not believe MA will honor your out of state LTC. Also, Boston is a 'no go' zone even for residents with concealed carry permits.

    Make sure you visit the Bunker Hill Memorial in Beantown, an important part of our history. On Martha's Vinyard the parks have been pretty well scoured for years, and there are many local hunters there. Most of the land is private, but there are many beaches open for hunting with easy access. South Beach, Bend in the Road beach, the Inkwell in Oak bluffs are all easy access public beaches, just ask the locals where they are.

    Oh yeah, when you go to Menemsha on the Vinyard stop in at my buddy's shop Copperworks of Martha's Vinyard. He is a fantastic copper worker and craftsman and you can also see the sterling and gold jewelry I make as he is the exclusive dealer for my work. The huge park by the ferry dock in OB looks like a dream, but it was totally bulldozed and landscaped about 20 years ago so there are no old coins or anything else old to be found there. Before the renovation over a hundred barber coins had been found there. You may find a few pennies in the other OB parks but they have been well pounded for years, but one never knows, I did manage to eke out a silver thimble last fall at one of the small OB parks. Hunting in the "Campgrounds" in OB is off limits as it's all private property although locals do go in there off-season. Good luck out there it is a beautiful place although crowded in the summer. By the way my buddy Scott who owns the Copperworks is also a charter boat captain out of Menemsha if you're looking to go fishing. If you want to go charter fishing out of Edgartown, Capt. Robbie Coad is the best there.

    Two more weeks and counting!!!!!!!!!!!Wooooo----Hoooooooooooo! Have a lot of spots picked out on the Island to check out. Plan on hitting the metal detector shop near Waltham on day two!!!

    Looks like the first day there the wife has us driving them up to Plymouth. Has to be an old park that's not state property near by!!!!
