Nantucket is a small, quiet island right off the shore of Cape Cod, Massachusetts known for grey shingled houses, cobble stoned streets, and dune-backed beaches. Some travelers take the ferry from harbors in Manhattan, New York or Massachusetts, while others opt to fly into the small airport.
One of my favorite spots was by the Brant Point lighthouse, located by the entrance of the Nantucket Harbor. The historic building is a great place to visit, especially early in the morning while the air is cool and before too many people wander out. The rocks are a great place to relax and enjoy watching the boats and ferries as they arrive and depart.
I've been going out to the Hamptons as often as I could since I moved to Manhattan. While Nantucket and the Hamptons have some similarities, I found Nantucket to be more quiet and historic. The people in Nantucket were noticeably more friendly, and the crowds more family oriented. Meanwhile, the Hamptons crowd is more trendy and art focused. Both Nantucket and the Hamptons are absolutely incredible, but offer vastly different experiences.
