Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard Massachusetts

Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard Massachusetts

Edgartown is one of the main communities that make up

Martha’s Vineyard, with each area offering its own unique character. Base yourself at an Edgartown vacation rental property, then day trip to Tisbury, Oak Bluffs, West Tisbury, Chilmark, and Aquinnah. You can either rent a car, or navigate the island by bike. 

Edgartown Lighthouse 

The Martha’s Vineyard Museum is privileged to be the steward of three of the Island’s lighthouses. The East Chop, Edgartown, and Gay Head lighthouses are not only historic reminders of a bygone age, but are working beacons that still send a light out into the night. Beyond their important functional role, these structures also offer visitors spectacular views of the breathtaking beauty of Vineyard Sound, the simple elegance of Edgartown Harbor & Chappaquiddick, and the majestic cliffs of Aquinnah. Major renovations completed in 2007, including installation of a staircase to the lantern room, allow the interior of the Edgartown Light to be open to visitors. A lighthouse keeper will be available and the doors will be open during designated hours. Parking is available, but limited, on North Water Street. The Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) busses drop off on Church Street in Edgartown. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the lighthouse from this location.
