Summer is in full swing, and coastal New England is the place to be! Imagine yourself relaxing on the beach, taking in the pristine view of the turquoise water, and making memories that will last a lifetime. The quaint island of Nantucket is the place to do just that. It is the perfect summer getaway for a girl’s weekend, family trip, or to simply escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life. With all the activities Nantucket offers, it is understandable why thousands of people continue to visit and revisit each summer. With over 80 miles of beaches, water lovers will have no trouble keeping themselves occupied. Bring the children for a day of swimming and sand castle building at Pocomo Beach, or learn how to surf at Cisco Beach. Treat the kids (and yourself) to an ice cream harbor cruise where they’ll even get a chance to steer the boat. If you want a little leisure time, you can walk through downtown and do a little shopping, stop by the Brant Point Lighthouse, or play a round of golf with friends.
There are so many restaurants on Nantucket you won’t know where to begin! Head on over to Cioppino’s and sip a glass of wine on the outdoor patio. Check out Nantucket’s premier lobster, steak and seafood restaurant, the Brant Point Grill, at the White Elephant. After a day at the beach, stroll through downtown and stop at Even Keel Café for casual dining. Vacationing with the whole family? The six bedroom Villa NAN GRA, in the heart of Sconset Village, is the place for you! Whether you’re looking for lively surf or to simply enjoy the calm waters, the Wauwinet will accommodate your every need with its two private beaches. With WIMCO, you’ll be ready to sail away on the ferry in no time.
