Just a short sail offshore is Dukes County consisting of the Elizabeth Islands and Martha's Vineyard, which sits approximately seven miles off the Cape Cod coast. "The Vineyard" is a favorite among those that seek summer stays away from the mainland. After all, it is technically known as a "summer colony". On the eastern side of the picturesque island you'll find Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown where you are welcomed on land for shopping, seafood and strolls through town, all rich with New England pride. With some trusted navigation, you can explore Menemsha, on the southwestern end of the island, or, perhaps relish in views of the Gay Head light house, an iconic island structure on the westernmost point of the isle.
