Our Nantucket Vacation | Part Two | My Favorites

As ACK first timers, we are by no means experts, but I wanted to document some of our favorite discoveries from this trip, as much for my memory as for anyone else who might by visiting for the first time.  Please feel free to add you Nantucket favorites in the comments so I can check them out when we go back!  :)

Beaches || Sconset and Madakat (I hear it's the best spot to watch sunsets)

Hidden Walks || Sconset Bluff Walk

Lunch || Provisions, Something Natural, and The Summer House Beachside Bistro

Bakery || Wicked Island Bakery (go early for doughnuts, available in the summer months only)

Ice Cream || The Juice Bar (don't skip the waffle cone)

Shops || Nantucket Looms and Peter Beaton Hat Studio

Rainy Day Activity || Shipwreck Museum

Dinner || Straight Warf 

Date Night || The Chanticleer

Pick Up a Picnic || Bartlett's Farm (the raw salad and fried chicken were deeee-lish)

Light Houses || Brant Point and Sankaty Head

Tradition || Toss pennies in the water when you pass Brant Point Lighthouse on the ferry out to ensure you return to Nantucket...

^^Sankaty Head Lighthouse in the fog.  The fog on Nantucket is one of my absolute favorite things too.  To watch it come rolling in like billows of smoke is amazing.^^

^^We like to over document... :)^^

Speaking of which, if I get my act together my last Nantucket post will be a little film (plus family pics of the cousins who were in Nantucket at the same time!!)  I didn't take as much video as I have on past trips (probably because I was too busy taking pics, but I did get some...) Stay tuned...


  1. I always love your videos! Looks like such a fun trip!

  2. beautiful pix! what a fun vacation!

  3. I am so enjoying your pictures and this post! Our family, in early June spent a wonderful week in Chatham, MA. One day we took the ferry to Nantucket and it was delightful. Nantucket Looms was a favorite of mine, too. Atlantic was another favorite shop. You do a remarkable job documenting your trips! Thank you for providing your favorites, we just might return one day!

  4. I read all of Elin Hilderbrand's books so I feel like I go to Nantucket every summer, even though I've never actually been. I've got to visit for real sometime. Love your pics.

  5. loved seeing your favorites! Thank you for sharing!
