Photo Ops:

How could you not take a lighthouse photo on Nantucket? There are three major lighthouses, including Brant Point, Sankaty Head and Great Point, and any one of them would make for an opportune photo—but why not visit all three? For another iconic view, take a stroll down Easy Street, an appropriately named stretch of road notable for its relaxing nature and quaint harbor view.

Favorite Spots:

Cisco Brewers has it all, embracing the drink triumvirate of being a brewery, distillery and winery. This unique spot features three separate bars, sharing a common courtyard complete with various food trucks. It’s easy to spend all day here, but if you want to see another island staple, the Whaling Museum is the place to go.
