The Quintessential New England Summer.

Seaside cottages, old whaling captains’ mansions, and historic harbors contain quaint inns, boutique stores, chowder shacks, and upscale dining delights. From swimming to surfing to fishing, here are a couple things you can’t miss on Nantucket...windswept beaches, sand dunes, blinking lighthouses and a charming pace of life await on this 50-square mile island. The world’s former top whaling port is now designated a National Historic District.
