The commercial center of West Tisbury, North Tisbury includes up-Island’s only grocery store, a bank, post office, restaurant, and small shops intermixed with dirt roads and parcels of farmland where horses roam. Homes are set back from the commercial bustle. The bucolic north shore is marked by swaths of farmland and wooded, winding dirt roads with multiple-acre lots.
