Know Before You Go

Martha’s Vineyard is not a peninsula, or an isthmus, or a just-off-shore Island, reachable by a causeway. It is the largest Island off the mainland of the United States that is not connected by a bridge or tunnel.  “On-Island” as we call it, are a hundred square miles of just about anything you might be looking for.

Just about anything you might want isn’t the same as everything, however.  There are no casinos, no stoplights, no streetlights, no big-box stores, no waiters serving umbrella drinks on the beach, and no chain restaurants that shall remain unnamed.
