Martha's Vineyard is located 7 miles to the south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts and is the 57th largest island in the US, measuring 87 square miles. The island is divided into six towns: the "up island" towns of Acquinnah, Chilmark and West Tisbury. And the "down island" towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgatown.
