Nantucket, Massachusetts

A ferry ride from Cape Cod, Nantucket is a town, and an island of beautiful uncrowded beaches, lovely vistas from bicycle paths and wonderful shops. Once disembarking from the ferry in downtown Nantucket, the sites are a short walk. Historical buildings, walking tours and the Whaling Museum are all here, though many establishments are seasonal since summer is the busiest time to visit. Boutiques, bookstores, galleries and antique shops line Main Street. There is a beach within walking distance. The bus system and tour guides make it easy to venture out of downtown for more exploration of the island. High end shops and cobblestone streets may remind you of Boston's Beacon Hill. Clothing and accessories, gifts, and home decor items are plentiful. Two downtown book stores, and an old fashioned soda fountain counter can be found, as well as sweatshirts, t-shirts, chocolates, candy, fudge and cupcakes. This town offers charm, history and ocean views, along with great shopping.
