Welcome To Martha's Vineyard
Year-rounders have known for generations that the off-season is one of the best times to enjoy the Vineyard. The rush of summer is over, but local events continue. The beaches are deserted, the restaurants are quiet and parking is easy to come by. There's a collective sigh in the air as traffic snarls come to an end.
First-time visitors are often surprised at the Island’s size. On a map of the United States it may look diminutive but up close it soon becomes apparent that within these 100 square miles there’s a terrific geographic and architectural diversity, with each of our six towns offering its own one-of-a-kind image to the world. As you can see on the map, the Island is basically triangular in shape, bounded on the northeast by Nantucket Sound and the northwest by Vineyard Sound, with the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
Here at the Best Read Guide, which is published by the Vineyard Gazette, you will find all the information you need to plan your fall vacation to the Island. Enjoy!
