Nantucket is located southeast of mainland Massachusetts. Tiny and quaint, this island has a ton to offer. Historically a whaling community, Nantucket has grown into one of the most well established tourist destinations, both nationally and internationally.
We first visited Nantucket seven years ago on our honeymoon and it didn’t take long for us to fall in love with all of its enchanting offerings.
With dreamy nautical views, cobblestone streets, five-star lodging and world-class dining, Nantucket has something to offer for everyone.
Many choose to visit during the warmer summer months, but this post is a testimony to the festive charm that decorates the island during that beloved first weekend in December.
It was a crowded Saturday evening on the quaint streets of Nantucket, MA. During the time of our stay on this lovely island, it happened to not only be our honeymoon, but also the Figawi Race weekend on the island. This annual boat race is the kick off celebration to the summer season for Nantucket island. The streets were lined with college students eager and loud, awaiting whatever activities were to occupy their last night on the island before returning back to their schools. Exhausted boaters after a long day of sailing, and of the course the ever so lucky families were also in attendance for this fun-filled weekend.
