A Day Trip to Nantucket
Last month, we explored a day-trip south of Boston, just 90 minutes away, to Newport, Rhode Island. Today, pack your tote with day-trip essentials, as we are off to Nantucket!
Nantucket can be reached by plane or car & ferry.
When to go:
– Day drink and hang with friends at the Cisco Brewery.
– Walk the downtown area on Main & surrounding streets to enjoy the architecture that the Nantucket Preservation Trust works hard to preserve.
– Take in a sunset at Galley Beach.
Where to eat:
The Proprietors Bar & Table – new American dining with a casual atmosphere.
The Pearl – for the best seafood.
The Brotherhood of Thieves – for those who love pubs.
Where to shop:
Bodega – home decor goodness from furniture to candles.
Milly & Grace – a feminine clothing and accessories shop with brands like Free People and Rebecca Taylor.
Audrey Sterk Design – open by chance or appointment, check out the studio of this well-known decorative painting artist.
And if you’d like, where to stay overnight:
White Elephant – splurge worthy for a special occasion.
21 Broad – a new boutique hotel with a fresh and bold interior design.
The Roberts Collection – you cannot beat the location of these inns.
