Nantucket Vacations

 
 
Nantucket     If you're looking for an ideal vacation place, consider the Island of Nantucket.  Nantucket is 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod. The Island's one town, also called Nantucket, has the architectural charm of the 19th century, with cobblestone streets, historic sites and buildings dating back to that period. Nantucket offers world class cuisine, upscale shops, and 100 miles of pristine beaches. You can choose from a wide variety of vacation activities including surfing, swimming, golf, fishing, sailing, and biking.

Kick back for the day by relaxing in a spa, visiting a museum, taking a sun bath, or joining an art class. The Island of Nantucket is small, 3.5 by 14 miles, and is home to 268 rare and endangered species.

The Islanders take great pride in their shops and homes and lovely gardens are seen everywhere. You'll still see evidence of the original settlers, with streets and businesses named after the Macy's, Starbucks, Coffins and Colemans, who landed in Nantucket in 1659.

Vacationers come here each year to escape the stress of everyday life and enjoy all of the luxuries the Island has to offer.
