Nantucket, Tuckernuck, and Muskeget make up the Town of Nantucket as well as Nantucket County. You have to take a 30-mile ferry ride from Cape Cod to get there, but if you want to call the quietest and southernmost part of Massachusetts home, it offers you a seaside lifestyle that can’t be matched in many other places in the U.S.
Nantucket has a year-round population of around 11,000 but that grows to over 50,000 in the summer months. Visitors are drawn to the New England oceanfront lifestyle, beautiful beaches, and historic charm. Those who stay past the summer will recognize a strong local community full of cultural attractions, great restaurants, and plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy. The yearly list of festivals and events will keep everyone busy as well.
