I have been going to Martha's Vineyard since I was one-years-old so naturally I am a bit biased but I do think it is one of the greatest places on Earth. It's beautiful, by the sea and has amazing food and culture. Now I only go in the summer when I'm on vacation so that helps a lot too but I do think this is a place I could live in all year round. I can't really put into words why I love it so much. I suppose it is because I have been there with so many of my favorite people, either sitting on the beach (the swimming is great, but not for the faint of heart. I have had a few close calls) or just having never-ending dinners with tons of good food and wine and a whole lot of James Taylor music. And the shopping is also awesome. I buy way too many items with anchors on them when I am there. If you are lucky enough to go, you really should. Plus , it's where they filmed JAWS, so, awesomeness.
