More info: In 1602, a British explorer Bartholomew Gosnold crossed the Atlantic and landed at a place he called Cape Cod because of the fish in the vicinity. He named the nearby island Martha's Vineyard after his daughter and the wild grape-like vines which grew wild.
The island is some 32 km long and between 3 and 16 km wide with the highest point above sea level at 95 mtrs. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Martha’s Vineyard enjoys a very temperate climate. In Summer, the Island is typically 8-12 degrees cooler than mainland Massachusetts, and in Winter, between 8-12 degrees warmer. The resident population of around 17,000 rises with visitors in the Summer months and can be as high as 200,000.
