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.

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 plus 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. Or head out into open water with a local sailing company, some of which have replicas of early 1900s vessels.
Visit the Brant Point Lighthouse, America's second oldest lighthouse in service for more than 250 years, or the Great Point Light, established in 1784 and towering more than 60 feet offering fantastic views.
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, 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.
