A town-by-town guide
Martha’s Vineyard is comprised of six towns. The three down-Island ones (to the east) are more populated, with lots of fun shops, inns, and restaurants. Up-Island (to the west) has a more rural flavor with its farms, woodlands, and open spaces. This chart explores the distinct character of each town.
The Island is twenty miles long from stem to stern. So wherever you choose to have your celebration or send your guests on an outing, give some extra thought to transportation and parking. Since the Island is only accessible by ferry and airplane, not everyone will bring a car with them to get around on their own. Make bus information available to your guests or consider chartering a trolley or other vehicle to shuttle them between venues. Advance planning on your part to make it easier for your guests to get around the Island will help them relax and have a great time while they’re here.
