I would try Edgartown…it’s my favorite spot on the island. My husband’s family has had a house in the Katama area of Edgartown since the mid 1940’s so I go out with him and his family about three or four times a year. Next trip out is for Thanksgiving…I can’t wait!!

If you want to be near the beach I would definitely reccomend Katama. It’s down near South Beach which in my opinion is the best beach on the island. It’s a lot quieter down there too compared to downtown Edgartown which can get pretty crazy with tourists during the summer. But Edgartown is GREAT for shopping and has some really wonderful  restaurants! I love it out there!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Edgartown is my favorite part of Martha’s Vineyard, too! And, if you go there via Woods Hole, definitely poke around! I went to grad school at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and it is a seriously cute little village, and Falmouth’s Main St area just up the road is also great (get some pastries at Pie in the Sky and take a walk around the pond in Woods Hole, you won’t regret it!)

I second Edgartown – it still has a lot going on, but is less touristy than some of the other towns on the Vineyard (i.e. Oak Bluffs).

My very close friend’s (one of my BMs) family has a place just outside Edgartown and it’s so lovely. The Guy and I both love it (and are so lucky that they have a guest house in which we can stay!).

Enjoy your trip, I’m sure you’ll have a fabulous time. Don’t you love having vacations to look forward to?

The great part about the Vineyard is that even if you stay in one part, you could always take the bus or a taxi to another part.  If you wanted to go to Oak Bluffs for an afternoon to see the gingerbread houses or ride the flying horses (hey, I’m a kid at heart!) it would be doable.  Good luck with your search!

@crayfish: I grew up in Falmouth, and I completely agree about trying to spend some time in downtown Falmouth or Woods Hole!  Falmouth is very historical with lots of little boutiques on main street.  Woods Hole is different, and a little bit harder to explain.  There are lots of great restaurants and lots of times there are fun bands playing in the bars at night!
