Chilmark is about the beach, and about Menemsha. Like the other up-Island towns, the village is small and rural, full of great walking trails and conservation lands. The classic Chilmark day is spent on the beach, followed by a trip to Menemsha to pick up fish or a cooked lobster. Sounds good doesn’t it?
You won’t find many amenities here, but you may find a celebrity (or two) on the porch of the Chilmark General Store. The Chilmark Community Center (and Pathways Arts in the off-season) offer some great cultural events.
