A hidden gem: a lovely, marked walking trail through the eastern tip of the island. Small ponds, wooded trails, close to Pocomo Point. This would be a great hike/ walk, combined with a picnic or swim at Pocomo Point, and a visit to the Sconset Market for provisions or ice cream.

A beautiful, lifeguarded beach on the south shore. You can bike there, shuttle there, or drive... There's also a fantastic food shack with some of the best sandwiches in town. The beach is beautiful, vast, and also guarded for south shore swimming in waves. Highly recommend.

Just a mile or so from our cottage. Bike or shuttle to the beach that is right around the corner from your vacation destination. South shore waves, lifeguard, and next to Millies, the famous Madaket restaurant for lunch take out or eat in.

Probably the best north shore beach on the island. It's vast and lovely, on the edge of the harbor. Watch the boats coming and going, swim with a lifeguard, explore the shores... There are fresh water showers, and a perfect restaurant as well, allowing you to make a full day at the beach. Bike, shuttle or drive (plenty of free parking). It's a four mile bike ride from our cottage, taking the Cliff Road bike path.

Arts & Culture
The finest Whaling Museum in the country. This museum is definitely worth visiting. There are lectures, films, and plenty to see. Tie in a visit with a trip to town and lunch or ice cream. Not to be missed. There's also an incredible view from the top of the museum, overlooking all of the harbor.

Shopping
Of course a trip to Nantucket town is a must. The restaurants, shopping, ice cream shops, and sites are wonderful. Shuttle directly from town (in front of the Whaling Museum) to the corner of our neighborhood (Warren's Landing shuttle bus stop), for easy access in and out of town. The shuttle bus runs every 30 minutes in both directions.

Food Scene
Don't miss this hidden gem of a lunch spot. Sandwiches are delicious, prepared to order on homemade bread, with any fixing you can imagine. Some of our favorites: the 'veggie,' the 'avocado, cheddar and chutney,' and the 'chicken salad.' Eat in or take out. This is a Nantucket classic.
