Inquire About This Listing
The Town of Nantucket, “Down Town,” or simply “Town” as many call it, is the epicenter of life on Nantucket Island. Situated on the north side of the island around Nantucket Harbor, Town offers both natural beauty and historical charm. In the early 1800s, Nantucket was the whaling capital of the world. While the wharves and many structures in the commercial district were lost in the Great Fire of 1846, some still stand today and are thoughtfully preserved and accessible to the general public. Whether it is through tours of Nineteenth Century whaling captains’ homes, events at churches or the Atheneum Library, or a visit to a museum, the island is steeped in history. Have you ever heard of Maria Mitchell, renowned astronomer and professor? How about Herman Melville’s Moby Dick? Surely you’ve read Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea, or seen the Hollywood blockbuster of the same name. Interestingly, Benjamin Franklin and Macy’s Department Store both have roots to Nantucket as well.THINGS TO DO IN THE TOWN OF NANTUCKET
Along with historical charm, downtown Nantucket today is chock full of restaurants, shops, and galleries. A true gastronome’s paradise, town offers all types of cuisine and levels of sophistication from A to Z. Whether you’re looking for Classic French, New American, Global, or something casual for the kids, you’re covered. In between meals, check out one of the many boutiques or art galleries as you stroll up and down narrow, beautifully landscaped cobblestoned streets. In the evening, there are many options for entertainment during and after dinner – whether it’s live music in a relaxed environment, or singing and dancing the night away in a swanky, lively spot.
There are many active pursuits in town, as well. Due to its location on the harbor, there are options for kayak, sailboat, and standup paddleboard rentals. Take a walk down to Straight Wharf and reserve a spot on one of the many sport-fishing charters available. Spend a day on a boat catching bass, bluefish, bonito, and maybe even see a few dolphins, whales, or sharks! There is also a Critter Cruise available for the kids.
The Brant Point and Cliff areas are right next to downtown Nantucket, so there are other beach options available nearby. Finally, most of the bike paths start at the edge of town, making the rest of the island just a bike ride away!
