Classically beautiful, this authentic New England region has many of the best restaurants, shopping and sightseeing opportunities. Golfing, deep sea fishing, water sports, bicycling, antiquing and great beaches are just some of the things to do.
Martha's Vineyard is the largest Island in New England, located seven miles from the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, “The Vineyard” – as locals call the Island – is authentic New England at its best. The Island’s beauty and cultural offerings make it a popular destination for visitors from all over the world; for celebrities who come here to enjoy the peace and privacy the Island provides; and for the many families who have made the Vineyard their summer home for many generations. Easily accessible, most visitors come by ferry, or by air.
There are six towns on the Island of Martha's Vineyard; three up-island towns, Aquinnah (formerly known as Gay Head), Chilmark, and West Tisbury; and three down-island towns, Vineyard Haven (also known as Tisbury) Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. The terms "up-island" and "down-island" are nautical terms referring to longitude on the map.
