Nantucket Online


One thing you’ll never hear somebody say on Nantucket is, “There’s nothing to do here!” From our miles of pristine sand beaches to the hustle-and-bustle of Town, the island literally has something for everyone. Shopaholics will find plenty of outlets for retail therapy and history buffs can get lost in the vast array of museums and historical sites that dot the island while the arts-minded will enjoy perusing the many art galleries and theatrical offerings found here. For the more aquatic amongst us, sailing lessons and boat rentals, kayaking, fishing, surfing lessons, or just lounging are some of the many beach-themed options available to you. And as they say on your favorite TV infomercial, WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Check out our Activities listings for a complete catalog of what to do on Nantucket.
