What Is Special About Nantucket?
Besides being a summer colony and a tourist attraction, Nantucket is special in its own way. It is made up of small islands including Muskeget and Tuckernuck, which makes it the only consolidated town-county in the city of Massachusetts.
The Best Way to Get to Nantucket
The best way to travel to Nantucket is through private flights. This is mainly because there are no bridges that lead to Nantucket, hence you will have to arrive by air or sea. If you decide to drive, it would take about four to seven hours from New York to Massachusetts, where you will then board a ferry for about two hours to arrive at the Nantucket Harbor.
A private charter like Mayo Aviation is there to save you all that time and get you to your spring fun much earlier and conveniently. Besides time, you will travel comfortably, safely and you would also enjoy multiple stops on your way.
Things to Do in Nantucket in the Springtime
When the daffodils begin to pop up all over town and a thin ice layer, which covers Nantucket Harbor drifts off, you know it’s official: Springtime is here. Discover thrilling ways to savor the spring during your visit.
Nantucket Daffodil Festival
On the last weekend of April, the festival celebrates spring’s arrival with a tailgate picnic, an antique car parade, a window decorating contest, a daffodil hat contest, and a children’s parade featuring strollers, wagons, and decorated bikes. It is a spring tradition you wouldn’t want to miss.
Lunch at Bartlett’s Farm
Warm weather gestures the start of a growing season. This brings about lots of sprouting in the oldest farm in Nantucket, the Bartlett’s Farm. Find out what new seeds have been sown while you relish hand-grown, organic produce. There are local beers, wines, and scrumptious meals too.
Nantucket Wine and Food Festival
Every May, visitors from near and far meet for the Nantucket Wine and Food Festival, the island’s premier event. It is a five-day fete that features seminars by the best chefs, wine tastings, and opportunities to sample small dishes from the county.
Biking the Island
For a small island, Nantucket is a biking paradise, and springtime is a good time to take advantage. Whether your compass directs you towards Madaket, Surfside, or Sconset, there is a bike trail to suit every ability. You can rent a bike on the island or bring your own.
