Edgartown is one of New England's most beautiful communities in the heart of Martha's Vineyard. It has been a major part of the cultural landscape of Massachusetts since 1642. The town was founded as a whaling community. The architecture of the homes in the area are built in the Greek Revival style and have been well-maintained since they were built by whaling captains. The original seaport village has been preserved as well. Today, Edgartown is known as a yachting community for both residents and visitors. The main street of the town is worth taking a stroll down with plenty of historical homes and markers for you to explore.
If you are looking to move into Edgartown with your family, there are plenty of beautiful options. Many of the homes in Edgartown are from the pre-whaling years. Many are either private residences or have been converted into museums. One structure, the Old Whaling Church, has been transformed into a performing arts center.
There is one animal hospital in the area, with a few more throughout the island. Dogs are not allowed on the beaches in Edgartown, but there are plenty of public wildlife refuges and other activities to keep you and your pup busy while you spend some time enjoying this town.
Chappaquiddick is a neighbor to Martha's Vineyard to the east. It is a part of Edgartown for census purposes. The area is much smaller than it appears on a map, being mostly comprised of bays, inlets, and ponds with a few hills and fields. The area was formed by glaciers about 20,000 years ago and was settled by ancestors to the Wamanoag people more that 12,000 years ago. Wasque Point is a local beach where you are allowed to fish or walk around with your pup on a leash. Swimming is not permitted due to the undertow in the area, but there are more beaches with better swimming waters up north.
In the center of Martha's Vineyard, there is the beautiful Manuel F. Correllus State Forest. This forest is a part of the northwest corner of Edgartown. There are more than 14 miles of trails, paved bike paths, and other activities in this forest. There is a statue in the middle of the park area honoring the heath hen, which went extinct in 1932. You can view the area's wildlife and woodlands from any of the paths that you choose, with many vantage points that are great for resting, taking pictures, or just taking it all in with your trusty pup by your side.
The central part of Edgartown is a sparsely populated but charming area where you will find plenty of scenic dog walking spots to enjoy. The Edgartown Great Pond is on the southern end of this community. Leashed dogs are permitted as long as you stay out of the water and are careful not to disturb the local wildlife. This town has a passion for conservation, and the Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary is just one of those efforts where you can enjoy wildlife while leaving no trace. There are four miles of trails that give you a spectacular view of the rest of the island's ponds, meadows, marshes, and shorelines.
Oak Bluffs is just a few minutes to the north of Edgartown. This community is home to Waban Park, which is a lovely open green space that is commonly used for festivals. Dogs are usually welcome as long as they are well-mannered and on-leash. Sailing Camp Park is another public green space where you can get a stunning view of Lagoon Pond and the harbor. There are plenty of walking paths for you and your pup to enjoy, but you will need to bring waste bags and keep your pup at your side. You can even rent some of the facilities for family functions!
The Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge is accessible from Edgartown via ferry and is about 90 minutes from Martha's Vineyard. It has been used as a preservation area since 1995 to protect the local natural resources and wild birds that migrate through the area. The refuge is more than 5,000 acres of stunningly beautiful land, with about 350 acres available for hiking and public access. Childs River is a fishing spot in the refuge where you can even bring a paddle boat. If you are bringing your pup, you will want a comfortable harness for him, plenty of drinking water, and some snacks for the day!
