Places in Martha's Vineyard
Although it's the island's commercial center, Vineyard Haven is a town of considerable charm. Its harbor has more traditional wooden schooners and sloops than any harbor of its size in New England. Central Vineyard Haven (aka Tisbury) is just four or five blocks wide and about a half-mile long.
The western side of the island – known as Up Island and comprising the towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah – is a patchwork of rolling hills, small farms and open fields frequented by wild turkeys and deer. Soak up the scenery, take a hike, pop into a gallery, stop at a farm stand, munch, lunch and beach.
