If you check out C.R.A.F.T. facebook, you might recall my play by play status updates (at the end of July) including 4 hours of delays, 3 airports, a deplaning, Smashburger, air tran traffic, lost bags, and minty nails. Thank you to everyone who responded to those posts…it was great entertainment while frolicking through airports.
I was on my way home from Nantucket Island. Nantucket Island was beautiful, and totally worth the 14 hour- slightly tortuous- trip home. Tina, my BFF in NYC, is the mastermind vacation planner. Tina, me and 2 other girls travel a lot together. Occasionally, we let boys come. This trip we had a total of 7 (including one adorable 9 year old!)
Here are 5 fun, free, family friendly things to do in Nantucket…
TIP: If you like waves (like us!) then you want to swim on the Atlantic side, if you don’t love waves, then the North side, the Nantucket Sound, is for you!
FUN FACT: Nantucket is an island, a county, and a town. It is the only place in America with the same name for all three. Nantucket is the red island, south of Cape Cod…
1. Cisco Beach
This was our favorite, and the one we kept going back to. There is a lifeguard on duty, the waves are fun, a surf school in an old school VW van, and even an ice cream truck!
The whole crew- minus me taking the picture 🙂
2. Jetties Beach
I think this one is another fun option for kids because there is a playground, restaurant, and even public tennis courts. And if you go in the early evening you can take pictures in the lifeguard stand 🙂 It is also just a short bike ride from town.
3. Strolling through town
Walk down to the marina…
4. Nantucket Red’s
5. The Wauwinet
