Madaket Beach

Madaket Beach is known for its spectacle sunsets, perfect for a photo or just enjoying the moment. Of course, plenty of visitors and residents alike head to Madaket during regular beach hours for sunbathing and swimming. Please note, surf can be heavy at times and the lifeguards are on duty seasonally. These lovely beach is even accessible via the Madaket Bike Path, which runs 5.5 miles (8.9 kilometers) from town.

Historic District

The buildings in the Historic District of Nantucket reflect all the charm of an old New England town. It is here where every nook, every alleyway, and every antiquated cottage coyly croons the secrets of the neighborhood's storied past. Its ocean-side Historic District is touted to be one of the oldest in the country. Although the dainty, wood-built buildings may not be the most scenic, their very fabric weaves together stories which date back as far as the 17th Century, some also lending insights into the Civil War. At this olden district, modest, pastel-hued shops, bed and breakfast inns, and traditional restaurants lie strewn across the winding, cobbled lanes, as well as Main Street, a major thoroughfare of the area. Mornings spill into afternoons at this antiquated quarter which is a heartwarming slice of American history. Since cars are discouraged in the laid-back quarter, Nantucket is a pleasant zone traversed only by cycles, bikes, and mopeds.

Sankaty Head Light

The renowned Sankaty Head Light is a prominent lighthouse which is constructed on the Nantucket Island in Siasconset, Massachusetts. This 60-foot (18-meter) lighthouse was first lit in the year of 1850 and it is still operational, though now it is automated. The towering lighthouse was incorporated in the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The grounds are open to the public, but visitors can not enter the lighthouse.

Whaling Museum

Spermaceti is a substance derived from whales that was once used to make candles. This converted 1846 candle factory is now home to a museum about Nantucket's whaling history - and it's an excursion that can not be missed. It features a tremendous collection of artifacts including the skeleton of a 46-foot sperm whale, the 16-foot (5-meter) glass prism from Sankaty Head Light, portraits of sea captains, a large scrimshaw collection, and so much more!
