A weekend in Nantucket

When you tell people you’re going to Nantucket, the average Joe thinks that you must have money because Nantucket is not cheap. It’s almost the equivalent of the Hamptons. I got to spend a weekend in Nantucket, with some friends who had some connections there.

We took a private plane to the island and even though it was private and I should’ve been basking in my hour of Kardashian-like lifestyle, I was freaking out because I hate small planes.

It was about an hour plane ride from NY. I did my research and you don’t need a private  jet to go there. Jet Blue also fly’s there commercial from NY.

The town of Nantucket is really quaint and everyone is very friendly. I hate to be cliche but it reminded me of the picturesque towns you see in those tv shows like  Modern Family and Desperate Housewives.

The historic and colorful buildings were sights to see in themselves.

We stayed at the Nantucket Inn, it was a two minute walk from the tiny Nantucket airport because it was right across the street. It was very cute, pleasant, and affordable! The hotel staff was so nice and accommodating. The Inn has an indoor pool and their buffet style Mom’s breakfast is worth the trip alone.

Where I ate:

You need to have seafood and seafood only if you’re in Nantucket.

A.K. Diamonds: a five minute walk from where I stayed. 4/5

They had a delicious lobster roll, amazing seafood clam chowder, yummy clams, and a favorite at the restaurant was their seafood bowl.

The Nantucket Lobster TrapThe pictures speak for themselves. I was so stuffed, I couldn’t eat the next day–also because I didn’t want to get rid of the taste. The service was superb as well! 5/5

Where I shopped:

In the Pink: 

I’m a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan and this store was filled with it from corner to corner.

The Suken Ship:

This is a good gift shop, with great water sports equipment.

The Sail Loft: 

Here you’ll find really cute dresses and clothes.

Sightseeing:

Nantucket is known for its lighthouses. The Sankaty Head Lighthouse and the Great Point Light House are ones to see  for a postcard picture.

Beaches:

Being a small island you can get to the beach from practically anywhere. Surfside beach had a beautiful sandy beach.

Nobadeer Beach is known for its picnics and surfing.
