Nantucket Island, located just 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, feels like its own little world. An ideal one, where the beaches are always perfectly windswept, the lighthouses are straight out of a postcard, and life goes at a slower pace. Could it be “the best island in the world”? National Geographic said it was. Did you know you don’t even need a car on Nantucket? It’s too charming for cars! You can just take the ferry over and ride a bike, with a little bell and a basket. Swimming, surfing, boutique shopping, fishing, and dining on fresh seafood are all glorious ways to spend a day, or a week, here. Leave your tents at home, though. It’s hard to bike with one and camping’s not allowed on the island.
