Once the world’s top whaling port, Nantucket is now a designated National Historic District. Iconic lighthouses, incredible mansions and a quaint harbor with cottages, boutiques, and chowder shacks are found along the windswept shores of this 50-square-mile island. Take to the water for a day of surfing or go fishing for striper, bonito or bluefish.
