You really should go for longer. A day is just not enough time to experience everything Nantucket has to offer. That being said sometimes with work and our busy lives all we really can take off is a day. This week I had the opportunity to spend a day on Nantucket and we had a blast! So if you can only go for a day here are the must dos!
I took the Hy-Line ferry out of Hyannis, be sure to catch an early morning high speed ferry to maximize your time on Nantucket!
Once you arrive it is time to explore! I love taking a stroll through town bouncing in and out of shops. Nantucket has some amazing local retailers that are definitely worth your time. Be sure to bring your wallet you will want to bring a few souvenirs home.
Right when you get off the Ferry be sure to check out Levitate! A new adorable surf shop. deWolf Leather Goods is a gorgeous shop, everything is hand made and unique. The owner is fabulous and she is always happy to do something custom. After the long ferry ride and some shopping we stopped at Provisions for lunch. I got
“The Other Turkey” sandwich, it was sooooo good! If you’re looking for some cute decor or accessories be sure to swing by Space at Old South Wharf. I love Old South Wharf it is right on the water and all the shops are adorable.One of my favorite places we visited was Nantucket Whaler, a new store on Old South Wharf. The owner Susan was so sweet and was really passionate about her products. Nautical decor and accessories, right up my ally! Definitely swing by and visit her this summer! Wow we did a lot of shopping today! Faherty, Shift, Charleston Shoes were a few other great shops! The heels at Charleston Shoes were probably the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. Shift had all my favorite brands, Sail to Sable, Drapper James and so many others! A trip to Nantucket isn’t complete with out a stop at Ice, local family owned and everything is homemade. It is the perfect snack for the ferry line.
Thank you so much to NIR Retail for providing such a great day and thank you to all the stores for hosting us! I had so much fun exploring Nantucket with my fellow bloggers, be sure to visit Jenna, Jessica, and Poorva on their blogs and see more from our trip to Nantucket
