DOWNTIME

Nantucket is paradise as it offers scenic grandeur, an array of dining options, one-of-a-kind shops and a culturally rich social scene. There is something to suit everyone throughout the year, but the island is most alive in the Summer. For those seeking more laid-back pleasures in the Summer months, the beach and conservation land await.


Nantucket may be best known for its local charm and world-acclaimed beaches, making many lists as a top summer travel destination. Once the official summer season begins, Nantucket is alive as it offers world-class dining, exquisite shopping, and endless recreational adventures. Even after the summer heat and crowds begin to disperse, Nantucket definitely does not come to a halt. Events like Nantucket Christmas Stroll and long holiday weekends make Nantucket a desireable destination at any point throughout the year.

Summer in Nantucket includes the Boston Pops on Jetties Beach, featuring the world-class Boston Pop's Orchestra, performing to raise money for Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Since 1996, locals and visitors alike have gathered to enjoy an evening of live music on the beach hosted by celebrity guests like Katie Couric, Tim Russert, and surprise performances by famous artists like Natalie Cole and Billy Joel. A world-class fireworks display over the ocean caps off the event.

As one the world's premier destination film festivals, the Nantucket Film Festival encompasses a full slate of screenplays, forums, and a celebrity roundtable that attracts actors like Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, and Andy Samberg, as well as internationally renowned speakers, such as Brian Williams and Chris Matthews. Add to this numerous art galleries that showcase Nantucket's local talent, a history exibited in one-of-a-kind museums and a cornocopia of fine dining and picturesque beaches that contribute to a rich, island culture.

Throughout the summer season, the beach is the place to be. Surfside Beach is a popular choice for local residents, and visitors who "crave the waves." Surfing is not the only activity that draws people to this beach. An area of Surfside known as "Point of Breakers" is one of the few spots that allows visitors to drive directly on the beach. Other well-known beaches of Surfside include Nobadeer, a beach known for attracting a "younger" crowd and  Fisherman’s, a quiet, local area. For people who prefer to spend a day at the beach with their children, Jetties Beach provides a setting that allows adults to relax and children to be entertained. The Jetties Beach Restaurant provides casusal indoor/outdoor seating and a full bar. A playground, calm waters, and plenty of open beach space encourages children to explore and let loose. The calm waters of Jetties Beach showcase incoming/outgoing vessels and a pristine, glistening harbor. For those that would rather stay out of the heat, but want to enjoy the beach, Madaket Beach, on the western part of the island, is the place to be as a cooler evening sets in. Whether one prefers to snuggle up on the beach with a blanket and a bottle of wine or would like to enjoy the fresh, baja menu at Millie's, A Madaket sunset paints a picture that is nothing less than remarkable. 

With more than 82 miles of majestic beaches, 8,900 acres of stunning conservation land and a downtown area that exibits charm unlike any other place in the world, it is simple to understand the phrase "everyone needs a Nantucket." This North Atlantic setting is accented by the finest dining, luxury shopping, and exquisitely manicured homes. The authentic cobblestone streets and historic buildings delight all who get the opportunity to experience and enjoy an island that was once the world's leading whaling port.
