A Diverse Array of Nantucket Things To Do

Small in stature at just 14 miles long and 3.5 miles wide, Nantucket is an island haven that is big on things to do. Pack your sunscreen and take your pick from beautiful and pristine beaches, and family-friendly shorelines to surf breaks for the truly adventurous. Head out to sea with an offshore charter and fish for tuna, bass and bonita. Or take the whole family on a whale or seal watching tour. Rent a bike and see the island. Explore lighthouses that guided mariners for three centuries, now standing sentinel only to their storied pasts. Visit museums to learn about Nantucket's diverse history. Or, take a stroll through historic downtown and enjoy a diverse array of boutiques, restaurants and antiques, each with a distinctive island flair.
