Visit Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts

Traveling to Martha's Vineyard

Peaceful and relaxing are two words that come to mind when we think of time spent on the Vineyard. The island moves to its own beat. Life slows down once you cross over on the ferry from the mainland. We all love it for different reasons, but in the end we agree. Martha's Vineyard is special, there is nothing else like it in the world. Travelers are enamored by the Island's varied landscapes, stunning natural beauty and conservation lands, charming waterfront villages and pristine beaches. Each day thousands of people gather to the quaint towns and beaches the island is so famous for. 

"The beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard is a world apart, offering a vacation ambience unlike any other. Explore the diversity of our six island towns, take long walks along our pristine shores, and step back in time to a more leisurely pace. Each season offers something different. We invite you to come and experience all the island of Martha's Vineyard has to offer."

Located just 7 miles off the Massachusetts coastline and accessible only by boat or air, the Vineyard is approximately 20 miles long and 7 miles wide and consists of six small towns: Aquinnah (formerly known as Gay Head), Chilmark, Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury and West Tisbury. Each town has its own distinctive history, character, and charm.

Whether you are here for a short visit or looking for something long term, Martha's Vineyard offers a community "rich in history and culture, with a diverse personality and intriguing seasonal and year-round populations. One of the most beautiful vacation destinations in the world, Martha's Vineyard attracts aristocrats, politicians, musicians, actors, artists and everyday families looking to escape to the beauty that abounds on our special Island. Visitors come from around the globe to spend a month, a week, or a day touring our quaint towns, exploring our vast stretches of beach, and sampling the simple life which lives on today." - MV Chamber of Commerce
