  • JRD: Nantucket is a historic whaling port 30 miles out to sea, it is a magical place of great natural beauty and historical significance. Almost half the island is conservation land and features wild moors, plains, and fresh water ponds. Wild roses and hydrangea grow profusely on the island. Eighty miles of Nantucket beaches are pristine and offer suburb surfing and swimming. Sailing, fishing, golfing, biking, bird watching, antiquing, museum hopping, fine dining and shopping are favorite pastimes. The island hosts a variety of events including the Nantucket film festival, Nantucket wine festival, Daffodil weekend, Christmas Stroll, Figawi racing, and the Opera House Cup regatta. Stand on the top of Main Street and look down the cobblestone street to the yachts docked on the waterfront and to the Brant Point lighthouse beyond-it is truly a spectacular sight.
