The quintessential New England summer experience. Beautiful and clean island. Lots of cute shops around the Main Street. Everything is quite pricy during summer season.

Nantucket is a fun day trip from Cape Cod - only one hour from Hyannis by high speed ferry. Great bike trails, fun shopping and plenty of historic sites!

We really enjoyed our time on Nantucket. It is a beautiful island that's bit smaller than the Vinyard. Lots of shopping downtown and nice bike trails throughout.

Nantucket is the cutest beach town ever. Pricey, but so much fun. Great swimmable beaches. The height of preppy outfits and people here. Great food and beautiful classic nantucket architecture.
