It’s time for the great escape of the summer: You’ve decided you’re ready for a break from your mundane home, eager to get to the sea. The only question: which coastline to explore?
Picture yourself here, breathing it in
Have you considered Nantucket, a small island 30 miles out to sea from the coast of Cape Cod? A former whaling hub, the island is now known for its beautiful cobblestone streets, high-end shopping, and incredibly scenic beaches. Whether you prefer a day on the links at Miacomet Golf Club, surrendering to the sun at Nobadeer Beach, or seeking out a local fishing spot, there’s an abundance of outdoor activities.
Take time to take in the Nantucket Daffodils
While the island may appear small, many enriching experiences await you here. Nantucket is host to many festivals throughout the year. In early spring, the much anticipated Daffodil Fest (see our previous blog post on it here) highlights nature’s wonder on the island. In June, both film and book are celebrated with their own three day festivals. To close the summer out, the celebrated Boston Pops plays a concert each year, benefitting the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. This year’s festivities mark the 25th anniversary of this fantastic collaboration.
Happy hour goes coastal.
Treat yourself to one of the many culinary adventures on the island. Nantucket caters to everyone’s needs, so whether you’re pining for fresh seafood or a hot cup of coffee, there’s something for everyone. If you’re in the mood for fine dining, consider The Summer House, which sets the ambiance for romance and old-time atmosphere. If you’re on the move, Nantucket also has a grocery store and a variety of “grab-and-go” options.
