Martha's Vineyard

90 beoordelingen

Martha's Vineyard gained national attention as the setting for the movie Jaws in the 1970s, but notable figures were spending their summer soaking up the sun on this picturesque island long before the movie. The third largest island on the East Coast, Martha’s Vineyard is situated off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

The area’s history is rich. Originally inhabited by the Wampanoag people, today a small population still resides on the island. It was also once a whaling center and now subsists almost entirely off of tourism, as the vast majority of inhabitants are summer vacationers. The island is well known as a celebrity summer vacation spot, and aside from the numerous beaches, vacationers also enjoy horseback riding, charter boat fishing, golfing, bicycling and hiking, among other activities. Martha's Vineyard gained national attention as the setting for the movie Jaws in the 1970s.
