Edgartown is the largest village on Martha’s Vineyard and is its historic and tony center. Historic captains’ homes along the water, tree-lined side streets with quaint homes and inns, and a vibrant commercial center make for an enjoyable run. This is a quick running tour of Edgartown.

Rather than proscribe a particular route, we suggest starting at any point in Edgartown and develop your own. A highlight is Lighthouse Beach and the ~1 miles along N Water St. and then S. Water St., with water views and homes built by whaling captains. Then, enjoy some of the leafy side-streets, such as Summer St., School St., (about 0.6 miles each) and Cooke St., staying inside Peases Point Way. Main St. is enjoyable for running if you go early to beat the crowds.

Add-ons: Katama Road, toward South Beach, has a good bike path. Not hugely scenic but wide-open.
