Beautiful scenery, great in the summer, fall, and spring. Schools are great, people are great, but it can feel isolated in the winter.

Love Edgartown. It’s a great place to live and grow up. Very safe, people look out for one another. Aesthetically beautiful with the sea captains homes, and beaches. Great restaurants and shops. Like to see a change made to the triangle area in the summer. Maybe a roundabout?
Edgartown is a preppy little town filled with unique boutiques and expensive coffee shops. Located by Edgartown Harbor and Chappy ferry.
