An all-American island that’s attracted tourists for centuries, Nantucket—located 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod—offers many ways to spend your days. Indulge in an exquisite seafood dinner. Explore the peaceful beaches that line the island's idyllic inlets and bays on foot, bike, or Jeep. Try your hand at surf fishing. Spend a long afternoon tracking the flight of coastal birds or disappearing between the pages of a book.
With one of the highest concentrations of pre-Civil War structures, you'll be roaming a living museum. Nantucket has all the creature comforts of the twenty-first century that today's jetsetters desire, wrapped in an elegant, colonial package.
Learn about the history of whaling, once the island’s most lucrative industry, at this museum, which houses a 46-foot-long sperm whale skeleton, as well as thousands of artifacts and art pertaining to the Nantucket way of life.
Nantucket is known for its pristine beaches, including family-favorites like Jetties and Surfside. Want to head out in open water? Tour the sound and harbor with Endeavor Sailing aboard a replica of an early 1900s vessel.
Albacore Fishing Charters caters to experts with half-day fishing excursions and to beginning anglers with learning expeditions of 2.5 hours. Try catching a dinner of striped bass, cod and tuna. A few lucky lines have even caught blue sharks!
Visiting Nantucket is possible anytime of the year, though summer is the most popular season, when there is warmer, sunnier weather, making visiting the beach, fishing and bike riding, among other activities, very pleasant. The summer season typically begins around Memorial Day weekend and ends around Labor Day weekend though fall events and early spring festivals attract visitors to the island outside of the high season.
