Help me decide which is better for a summer vacation; Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket?

Every other year we do a laid back vacation, and just rent a house for a week near a beach. This year we are considering either Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, but can't decide which would be better. I guess they are pretty similar, but maybe I'm missing something. Some details: wife and 3 kids (grade school through high school ages), looking for relaxation and fun, but we are not night life or club people. We would like a quiet environment to hang out as a family, with some good food, and a few places to see other than the beach, although most days will be spent there, so any advice on better beaches would be very welcome.
I'll check in in case anyone wants more info. Thanks as always for any helpful advice. Pros and cons of both locations are welcome.
