Very, very historic building and amazing ivory scrimshaw collection, as well as books and DVD's you can take out. Be sure to go upstairs to the Great Hall !!

There is nothing on the island that does not make me very happy. This is a wonderful place. The sunsets, the moonlight, winter, summer, spring or fall ............go there!

This is the beach to go to for surfing while on Nantucket! Beautiful stretch of soft, sandy beach with good to great surf, depending on the weather. Lifeguards and surf gear rental both present. We will be going back again, and again!

Loved this beach - waves were big and the beach great. It does not have food or shower facilities but does have the surf school. Even if you are not interested in learning to surf - it is great to watch!

We rode our bikes here several times, and although we didn't stick close to the lifeguarded area, did enjoy the wide expanse of beach with few people (this was prior to Labor Day!). Having portable facilities that were as clean as I've ever seen them...More

Cisco Beach was our favorite! Great waves, lots of room for frisbee and crystal clear water. Relatively easy bike ride and conveniently on the way to get to the Cisco Brewery. The Brewery is a must stop!

This beach is where you go to surf or take lessons at the surf school. Nice sand, great waves but prone to rip currents so pay attention. The lifeguards here are in great shape. A lovely ride from town by car or on the bike...More
