Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce

The seaside village of Vineyard Haven, which is also known as Tisbury, is the main entry point to the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Nestled in a cove that was once the site of a prominent whaling station, this town is a popular summer vacation destination, but attracts the adventurous year-round. Although many of Vineyard Haven’s historic buildings were destroyed by fire in 1833, there are several historic homes that survived and continue to stand proudly on William Street, overlooking the harbor. Visitors of all ages enjoy the Martha’s Vineyard Seafaring Center, a museum that showcases historical maritime artifacts such as whale teeth and a life-jacket from the Titanic. Recreation abounds in and around Vineyard Haven, with the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest being an activity hotspot. This park features an extensive trail system that draws mountain bikers and hikers in the summer and cross-country skiing enthusiasts during winter months.
