We’ve finally entered into the fall season and here in Nantucket, the pace has slowed just a bit. It’s such a beautiful time of year to be here—if you have been craving some time away to just retreat and really get some down time, we encourage you to come spend a few days with us at our inn. We really enjoy highlighting the best of the best of Nantucket—some days the big events and other times, the small local treasures that us natives may only know about. Today we want to chat about a great local business called Capture Nantucket that offers some unique tours we think you’ll enjoy.
Capture Nantucket came about as founder Eleanor developed a true love for Nantucket over the 15 years of visiting the area. Her love for photography started as a simple hobby but quickly blossomed into a business that helps others see the island as she does. She offers several photography excursions and workshops and you do not need to be a professional to jump and enjoy any one of them.
