Once a windswept prairie formed after the last Ice Age, the Long Point Wildlife Refuge now exists as a spectacular landscape replete with beaches, coastal grasslands and shrub forests. Straddling West Tisbury's coastline, it is one of the region's most reputed nature reserves since the year 1979. Easy trails, spanning 3.37 kilometers (2.1 miles) scythe through the woodland, looping along the beachfront, offering visitors a glimpse into the reserve's unique ecosystem. Although popular with birdwatchers, one can also kayak along the beach or engage in some stand-up paddleboarding.
Six miles of hiking trails meander through this 350-acre nature preserve. The well-marked trails lead visitors through open fields, woods, marshlands and beaches. Tree swallows, wood ducks, barn owls and osprey as well as other wildlife can be seen while walking around this wild and beautiful landscape. Special programs are held throughout the year, including Sea Ducks at Squibnocket in March and a large plant sale in May.
A rustic, bright red barn is home to this popular gallery, which houses work by a number of internationally recognized artists, including the famous photographers Margaret Bourke-White, Carl Mydans, and Alfred Eisenstaedt.

Artwork may be ordered from the gallery's website but a visit to its ever-changing collection is recommended.
Today, this is the island's "year-round" town. For centuries, Tisbury, commonly known as Vineyard Haven, has been one of New England's top seaports. While much of Martha's Vineyard shuts down when the snow falls, here local shops, inns and restaurants remain open. The historic West Chop Lighthouse, Tashmoo Lake and Old Schoolhouse Museum are among the local attractions. Vineyard Haven is one of the harbors welcoming visitors arriving on ferries from the mainland.
Built in 1859, the beautiful Martha's Vineyard Grange Hall was the home of the renowned Agricultural Fair until 1997. Today, the building, which is composed of gorgeous wood beams and a Cape Cod-style exterior, plays host to a variety of events and groups, including farmer's markets, antique sales, and art and culture fairs.
