Nantucket

Nantucket is an island south of Cape Cod which can be accessed by ferry from ports in Hyannis, MA, Martha's Vineyard, MA, or by plane. Once a whaling port (with honorable mention in the novel Moby Dick), Nantucket now exists as a large vacation and tourist attraction.

Unlike Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket's development is highly controlled, making it less crowded than its "sister island." The uniform cedar shake shingle that nearly all of its buildings are sided with gives the island a quaint, classy feel. Coupled with the preppy pastels most vacationers wear, it isn't hard to see why Nantucket has a posh, upper-class reputation.

Some of the most successful business ventures here were inspired by the island. Nantucket Nectars (a juice drink much like Snapple), and Vineyard Vines (a clothing company), are just a few of these success stories. The famous "Nantucket Red" hue can only be found at Wilson's Clothing Store on the Island.

Regardless of reputation, Nantucket does have some wonderful beaches. Nobadeer Beach allows permit- bearing drivers to pull onto the beach. The vehicle-less beaches are just as nice, with perfect bodysurfing waves and relatively wide beaches.
