11. West TisburyA quiet life is what you'll get if you move to West Tisbury. Located in south-central Martha's Vineyard, on the other side of the airport from bustling (in relative terms) Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown, West Tisbury is an alcohol-free zone that's all about farmland, with an agricultural fair every summer, roadside farm stands, and a 36-year-old farmers' market.
It has a Green Acres-tiny town center, with a little Congregational church, a country store, and a town hall. If you blink your eyes, you're through the town, says Renee Ortiz, co-owner of Martha's Vineyard Seacoast Properties in Edgartown. Much of the housing stock is newer, but still in keeping with the island's understated grace. Seclusion is valued here, with many homes tucked away along winding dirt roads that lead to the water.
