An Intimate Stretch of Heaven on the Atlantic
Nantucket's mere 47 square miles belies the number of ways there are to play away your days. Of course, 80 miles of sandy shoreline are here for strolling and lolling in the sun, ice-cold drink in hand and seafood dinner nearby in the capable hands of the island's vaunted local chefs. You can explore on foot, bike or jeep the peaceful beaches lining the island's many idyllic inlets and bays. Take to the water in a rented boat or on a guided tour, where you can try your hand at surf fishing. Or simply spend long afternoons with nothing more complicated on your agenda than tracking the graceful flight of coastal birds or disappearing between the pages of your favorite book.
The finest in spa services and athletic clubs with every conceivable form of instruction are close at hand - and with one of the highest concentrations of pre-Civil War structures in the United States, you'll roam a living museum and summer colony whose splendid and storied delights are teeming with discovery.
