Welcome to Nantucket, one of the most magical places in the world. The island has so many different places of beauty, be it the beaches, the rural areas, the well-kept houses of our unforgettable Main Street, the village of Siasconset (’Sconset) or the village of Madaket, for sunsets, as you have never experienced before.
How do you get here? Travel by ferry or plane, there is no bridge connecting us to the “mainland.” But we like to think that the harder something is to get to, the more special it is once you’re there.
Your options for accommodations are many: private cottages and houses are available for rent, and there are charming bed & breakfasts, inns and hotels to stay in as well. View all here.
To get a more in-depth feel for the beauty of Nantucket Island, order these magazines. The photos and stories on our pages will give you an authentic perspective of island life in all seasons. From Daffodil Festival in spring, when the island wakes up with thousands of daffodils blooming to the winter delights of Christmas trees lining the streets downtown and carolers singing along the cobblestones during Christmas Stroll.
There is something to do here year-round. Check out our year-round calendar for many options. Anytime you visit, shops are open, restaurants welcome you to enjoy meals prepared by world-class chefs who have created menus so varied, and it is hard to choose where to partake of a memorable meal.
Beauty can be found walking the beaches, no matter the time of year. You will find there are many ways to see the island: a guided tour, a beautiful bike ride on our many miles of bike paths. Rent a car, moped, or a 4-wheel drive vehicle to travel onto the beach, or even more compatible with life on an island surrounded by water, get out onto the water on a boat charter or rent one of your own, be it a kayak, sailboat or motorboat.
Nantucket is yours to discover.
