The island of Nantucket is a place of incomparable beauty and rich history.

We will gain insight into Nantucket’s past as we tour the Nantucket Historical Association’s Whaling Museum and historic houses, the Nantucket Atheneum, and the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum. We will walk elegant Main Street and picturesque Siasconset, visit a working cranberry bog, and venture through a wildlife refuge to Great Point Lighthouse. Our accommodations at the historic Jared Coffin House will afford a comfortable retreat.
