EDGARTOWN was the province of the captains of the 19th Century whaling industry. The historic district is thus distinguished by stately period homes, shops, inns, eateries and a yacht-friendly harbor. The outer environs of town comprise a diversity of communities – the seaside ambiance of Katama, the woodsy seclusion of Edgartown Great Pond, tidy inland subdivisions and little Chappaquiddick Island, a one-minute ferry ride across the harbor. Islanders near and far flock to the broad sands and lively surf of South Beach.
