    More than half a dozen museums are open during the season, featuring exhibits on Nantucket whaling, island art, Nantucket shipwrecks, Nantucket Lightship Baskets, and more.

    Nantucket offers a wide variety of shops, many locally owned, that offer goods not found at any mall!

    Dining is some of the finest in the world from the best casual restaurants to fine dining on a Nantucket waterfront. When the sun goes down, there's still plenty to do. Live bands from Rock to Jazz, karaoke, poker, trivia, and so much more.
