One of the larger towns on charming Martha's vineyard, one of the largest islands adjacent to the continental US. A summer retreat for over a century, Edgartown and the entire Martha's Vineyard island is the quintessential New England island. Once an old whaling port, today Martha's Vineyard is filled with charming homes, restaurants and provides the perfect backdrop for the laid back island lifestyle. But it will cost you. Real Estate on island isn't cheap. And the population swells during peak season and then it's extremely quiet in the the winter. Like everywhere, there are pros and cons but for many, Martha's Vineyard is all that.
