The distinctive charm, fascinating history and unique culture of Nantucket Island will be apparent once you land on its shores. Its iconic beaches, shops, art galleries, and historic downtown are just a few of the highlights of this popular destination.
Originally known as the “Whaling Capital of the World” during its heyday of the 1830’s and 40’s, Nantucket holds the title of National Historic District, and even today the majority of its buildings follow the classic Colonial style of the 17th century. Here you’ll witness cobblestone streets, old-fashioned lanterns and seaside shops in the downtown area.
Nearly half the island is protected conservation land, and it offers pristine beaches for our visitors in all directions. To the north, Nantucket Sound offers still, shimmering waters. On the south, the Atlantic helps shape the island into ever-shifting configurations; brave the waves and let the salty ocean breezes invigorate you.
Find your next treasure in the boutique shops and choose your new favorite vintage in Cisco’s winery and brewery, and taste the local flavors at one of the many area restaurants. Discover the island’s art and culture in the museums, art galleries, theater, music, art, literature and film.
