Traveling around Martha's Vineyard in a large group

I am coming to Martha's Vineyard for Memorial Day Weekend with a large group (12ppl). We are staying in a house in Edgartown. Should we rent a car or use the island shuttle to go from place to place? Also, what are the top sites should see?

Are you staying at an inn or a private home? Do you want to spend time on the beach? Normally I wouldn't recommend a car but with the number of people you have it may be easier & cheaper, especially if you want to go to Menemsha (lobsters and sunset) or Aquinnah (light house & cliffs) Other things to do: visit Oak Bluffs and the Gingerbread Cottages, if you have kids (even if you don't) visit the carousel. South Beach in Edgartown has great waves, State Beach on the road between Oak Bluffs & Edgartown is calm and warm. You can also rent bikes & go over to Chappaquiddick ( 5 minute ferry ride from Edgartown) or take a tour with the NRT:

Thank you both for your suggestions. We will be staying in a private home so we were thinking about renting bikes and taking public transit would be easiest. I am not sure how close the home is to public transit, which may also effect this decision.

Kendrick, Thank you for the activity suggestions!
