Story Ideas

Martha's Vineyard is a writer's dream. It's an island rich in history and culture, with a diverse personality and intriguing seasonal and year-round populations. One of the most beautiful vacation destinations in the world, Martha's Vineyard attracts aristocrats, politicians, musicians, actors, artists and everyday families looking to escape to the robust natural beauty that abounds on our special Island. Visitors come from around the globe to spend a month, a week, or a day touring our quaint towns, exploring our vast stretches of beach, and sampling the "simple life" which lives on today.

Very Vineyard

Culinary Tourism – How the Island’s commitment to its roots in sustainable farming & fishing translates into some of the most delicious farm-to-table (not to mention ocean-to-table!) programs and menus in New England!  (Did we mention that Martha’s Vineyard doesn’t have chains, including NO chain restaurants?).

– Spend any time on the Vineyard and you’ll soon discover that there is no one word, photograph, or marketing phrase that has yet to capture all the diversity on this small Island. From the Wampanoag Native American tribal members and the whaling captains and their foreign crew members to the farmers in Chilmark who began the roots of American Sign Language, to the African American community and artists who call the Vineyard home – Martha’s Vineyard has always been an example of harmony through diversity.

Arts & Culture
– Experience the depth and our vibrant arts and cultural communities, including Vineyard Haven, Arts Place’s Small Town Art Place, our National Landmarks, 5 historic lighthouses, professional theater and dance, music, galleries, studios, exhibitions and so much more.

Natural Beauty – Surrounded by the waters of the Atlantic, and with more than one-third of our total land mass preserved from development, the Vineyard offers unparralled water sports and fishing, birding, hiking, cycling, kayaking, paddle boarding and so much more.
