Getting there

by boat

The most common way to get to Nantucket is by ferry. Steamship Authority and HyLine Cruises are the two companies that operate ferries between Nantucket and Hyannis, MA. If you plan to take the ferry, our recommendation is to park your car in Hyannis and take the fast passenger ferry (a 1 hour ride). The island is very accessible with Taxis + car and bike rentals, but if you are interested in bringing your car on island, there are 2 hour freight ferries available through Steamship Authority. There is also a bus from Boston Logan airport/South Station to Hyannis, which takes about 2 hours and is a quick walk to the ferry terminal.

Both the Steamship Authority and HyLine offer parking options in Hyannis for $10-$25 per day. Since it's a holiday weekend, we recommend booking your round trip early! But if you miss it... there is always the next ferry!

by air

There are multiple airlines that fly to Nantucket Airport (or ACK) via New York, Boston, and Washington D.C., including Cape Air, JetBlue, United, and American. Cape Air is a JetBlue partner, and operates the majority of flights in and out of the Nantucket Airport.

We'd recommend booking your flights early to get the best price possible!

accommodations

AIRBNB

If you're looking for an airbnb, we recommend looking for something near the main town. This is the best option for large parties. We are happy to help you find something if you'd like to reach out! We made a list of some airbnbs we found, but happy to talk to you about other options if there's nothing on the list below that works for you!

HOTELS

There are multiple hotels and BnB's available in town, including the White Elephant, the Graydon House, the Jared Coffin House, and more. We are happy to help provide recommendations!

transportation

CABS/UBER

If you're staying in town, there is a cab stand next to the Club Car on Main Street, and there are also plenty of Ubers!

Car and Bike Rentals

There are multiple car, bike, and additional transportation services to help you explore the island during your trip.

Our favorite things to do on Nantucket

Cisco Brewery

Their outdoor courtyard provides a place to relax and enjoy live music, fresh oysters and clams, food trucks, and Island favorite beers like Grey Lady Ale, Sankaty Light, and Whale's Tale Pale Ale. Also home to Triple 8 Distillery (behind the infamous Figawi-Wowi).

Cisco has a courtesy shuttle van, traveling non-stop, back and forth, every afternoon between the Visitor’s Center downtown at 25 Federal St. and the brewery, for free.

The Whaling Museum

Learn more about the rich history of the island. This impressive museum features exhibits, a rooftop observation deck overlooking the harbor, and a fully-intact sperm whale skeleton.

Conde Nast named it "one of the top 10 small museums in America."

Rent Bikes

Nantucket is very bike friendly, with paths stretching from Madaket (west) to 'Sconset (east). Bikes are easy to rent from Cooks, Young's, or the Nantucket Bike Shop, all located right in town. Stop along the way to see landmarks like the Old Windmill, the Jared Coffin House, or the island's famous lighthouses.

The "Loop" of the 7 Mile Road and Polpis Road is a great way to see the entire island.

You can take your bikes back to town on "The Wave Shuttle" if you get tired!

Shopping

Enjoy a walk through town on charming cobblestone streets. Main Street is where you'll find some of Nantucket's best local shops. Murray's is where Nantucket Reds originated.

From Murray's, head down to the harbor to grab a mudslide and see the beautiful boats, or stop by Aunt Leah's' Fudge!

Sconset Bluff Walk

The 'Sconset Bluff Walk is a beautiful walking trail along a bluff overlooking the water in 'Sconset. It is a small dirt path that travels through the flower-filled backyards of many 'Sconset homes.

You can stroll along the bluff to the Sankaty Lighthouse.

Make a right after 21 Front Street and a quick left. Rather than walk down the path to Codfish Park, go straight after the sign that marks the Bluff Walk.

Sandbar

Don't leave Nantucket without checking out our favorite place on island - the sandbar! You can take the Wave bus there, or walk from town if you're feeling up for it!
