Nantucket

New England's magical Isle

Travelers have long flocked to the island of Nantucket for rest and relaxation just off the mainland. The epitome of charm, Nantucket town’s cobblestone streets, world-class restaurants, whaling museum, high-end shops and historic buildings are just a start. Venture a bit further and explore more than 80 miles of beaches, cranberry bogs, a park that will have you swearing you were transported to Africa, and a stellar brewery/distillery. Taken together they truly make Nantucket sing.
