The island of Martha's Vineyard combines compelling natural beauty with the charms of a beach resort and plenty of outdoor activities. Each town on Martha's Vineyard has its own distinct style and atmosphere. Vineyard Haven is the island's commercial hub and the place most visitors arrive to by ferry.
On the eastern shore, Edgartown is full of graceful 19-century homes of the town's sea captains and mercantile class. To the north, Oak Bluff is full of gingerbread cottages, while the Western Shoreline is a tranquil rural setting with spotless beaches.
