Nantucket is basically a small island off the coast of Massachusetts.
Nantucket is a beautiful summer vacation spot (although the locals who live there are also very nice!). Many Upper Class families from the Main Line
, Connecticut, several other east-coast Upper Class regions, and (surprisingly) California.
Despite what most people have said, the families who vacation there do NOT get drunk all the time (although older teens tend to throw amazing parties). They go to Nantucket for peace and quite to get away from work and school.
The Nantucket town is rather small, but is easy to get to from any side of the island. The town is equipped with places to eat (the Boarding House, the Pearl, Rope Walk etc...) the Toy Boat (toy store), a Stop + Shop (grocery store), a local library, Force 5 Water Sports, and several small boutiques.
Alter Rock is the highest point on the island and is located in the center of the Moors (grasslands). Alter Rock is often biked to and is a popular attraction.
Nantucket is an amazing place to be during the summer.
