Where us hermits go in the winter and build boats in our woodshop and just smoke A LOT of dope. But really though, we island kids just sit around all year waiting for summertime/ rich kids to come down so we can make "friends" with them, take them for all that they're worth, party at their houses, and fuck their hot moms. The island is where money meets the thresh-hold of man-eating natives. And we hate all you tourists, by the way. We are not your friends. In addition to this... most of our "island characters" reside in oak bluffs (one of the disco dirtier towns)you may know them as....
Scrubby(man in extremely flithy yellow trench/raincoat/suit, who sits hunched squatted on the streets smoking cigarettes and living atop the movie theater (watchout!)) Hamburger(the older black gentelman who spends the majority of his days sitting on the picnic benches next to Gio's (who might i add has the best pizza on the island) he also has recently invested in a new red truck, an upgrade from his brown pick-up, filled with garbage. In the off season, he purposely does something to land him in jail for the next few months until the weather gets warm. Cheap Ass. Leroy (L-ROY formaly... previously lived in a shack behind a friends house... that we toilet papered the SHit out of... used to ride his bike around with a case of beer, talk about easy driving, now lives in a halfway house and drives a maroon something or other. Bumble Bee (BBBUZZZZZ His first name is Colin, and rides a bike. enough said.) EVERYONE knows everyone so all you summer fools watch ya backkkkkkkkkkkk yo, you think the gingerbread houses are made out of ginga bread ya dead wrong, you think ink well is a "nice" beach ya dead wrong, you think Mad Marthas is angry ya dead wrong, you think black dog is cool ya dead wrong, you think biking around the island is groovy ya dead wrong,if you think we're RAD...you're probably right. We are not all indians, we live in real houses, live real lives, have real families, and we're coming to a city near you soon... because we can't afford to live here anymore. Rich pricks. By the way Billy your house is RAD...thanks for the great new years eve party....hope next year the riffels don't get pulled out as the gats did this year.love yah Everybody here wang chung tonight
D: hey girl, you wanna go down town and score some rich kids?
J: Oh fo hella sho!

I live on Martha's Vineyard year round and I have to deal with all the tourists (by the way, some of whom are not all that bad) and then I get to live there through the desserted winters...and it is still my favorite place on earth. The natives are highly misunderstood. None of us are rich, we are scraping to get by because the Island is so expensive. We make our money through the tourism and we grin and bare it all for 4 months a year. The upisland beaches are gorgeous, and upisland in general is the place to be...avoid the crowds at all costs. But honestly, if you are looking for a place to hate on, look somewhere else. This is island is gorgeous and welcoming.
And yes, Nantucket has nothing on Martha's Vineyard.

Known for short as "MV", it is an island that is part of Massachusetts and is located off the coast of Cape Cod. It is the premier summer destination in all of New England, hands down. Unlike many other summer destinations, it provides a great variety of landscapes/locations. The up-island beaches of Aquinnah, Chilmark, West Tisbury, and Edgartown are the nicest ones on the island, and host the best bonfires around. The more "in-town" spots such as Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown are always booming with people in the summer, and are each great in their own unique way. Vineyard Haven is populated by many islanders, Oak Bluffs is the true "summer town", and Edgartown is the slighty fancier and more aristocratic of the three. Everyone has to experience this amazing place at least once in their lifetime, and when they do so, they should abide by these guidelines: Don't rent a moped, don't flaunt your tourist status, don't buy too much at the Black Dog (one t-shirt is ENOUGH), make sure to experience the whole island, try to avoid the cheesy tourbus, stay with somebody you know who is a regular there, and last but not least do everything in your power to come back again and again.

martha's vineyard is the most amazing summer get-away that is now being ruined by soccer moms and their little kids, and too many confused tourists. It's certainly not a rich snobby island, unless of course your a rich snobby kid renting a 2 million dollar house for the summer. In fact, most islanders just chill, and most certainly arent rich and snobby. And if you really loved martha's vineyard, you'd choose a day driving up island to chill over partying in oak bluffs everynight...anyday. by the way, MV kicks nantucket's ass.
MV: nantucket, you should just go and erode away because i own you.
Nantucket: your right.

A beautiful island, which has retained its charm and character throughout the growth of its fame. The summer visitors who stay in "MV" may be in fact equally as wealthy as those staying in the flashy Hamptons, but despite popular belief the Vineyard does not have a hoity-toity feel, and residents and visitors alike are friendly and do not appear snobby. Another major difference between the Vineyard and some other wealthy beach towns is the type of people -- Martha's Vineyard is a summer getaway for old money, as opposed to the nouveau riche of The Hamptons. You'll also find that those who spend summers in MV tend to be democrats. After celebs such as Clinton and the Kenedys began vacationing on the Vineyard, the news of this charming island spread and yes, more and more tourists have arrived. However, they have managed to keep almost every chain hotel or restaurant off of the island, there are virtually zero traffic lights, and large advertising and signage is limited. The charm of Martha's Vineyard definitely remains.
I'm heading up to charming Martha's Vineyard for the summer.

MV is the shit. In the summer it is the dankest place there is. Edgartown is not all that bad, granted there are a lot of preppy kids but they arent all that annoying and snobby. Edgartown is an easy place for good, clean girls that wont put out unless you get them drunk. Go to the Paper Store and watch the Shocker in action he'll show you how its done. Bottom line, GO TO MV
Island/Summer resident: Hey how are you, what is your name.
Girl Tourist: Hey, im Amanda, im visiting Martha's vineyard for a week.
Island/Summer resident: Thats cool, you wanna hang out with us tonight, theres a beach party only a mile from here.
Girl Tourist: Yea definetly.
Island/Summer resident: Alright let's go, we will show you what MV is really about.

An island, off the coast of Massachusetts//Cape Cod. Look people, I live there. And by live there I do not mean that I stay for a week in the summer, I don't mean that i stay for 6 weeks in the summer and the occasional memorial day weekend. I LIVE there. Eat, sleep, go to school, play sports, ON MARTHA'S VINEYARD. And for the record, if you're one of those people who thinks everyone who lives there is a rich snob, you can stay at one of your other 5 houses, because i probably hate you, as well as most of the people i know. kay thanks.
Martha's Vineyard is way better than the Nantucket GAY-lers.

Hmm. We are nice normal people who want to go on a nice vacation with other nice normal people. Let's go to martha's vineyard.
