One of the most famous islands in America due to its prominent history and regular mention in the opening line of limericks, Nantucket is a beautiful, peaceful slice of the old. The island has everything that you could possibly want for a weekend break or a longer sojourn, the beaches are beautiful, there is a great deal of activities to take part in and they are suitable for all of the family. Stately homes surrounded by beautiful gardens hint at the islands past as an extremely wealthy whaling community but the island is more famous now for its remarkable world-class dining and market culture. You will never be short of options for food regardless of your budget or taste as the streets are, literally, filled with restaurants and cafes. Nantucket is also home to some of the finest accommodation in the U.S. so whether you prefer to sleep in old-fashioned Massachusetts-style luxury or a plush resort-spa then you will not be disappointed. One of the most interesting things to see on the island is the Nantucket Shipwreck and Life-Saving Museum as the waters surrounding have been home to an astonishing 700 wrecks over the years.
