  • Make sure to bring a good pair of walking shoes. The cobblestone streets can wreak havoc on a nice pair of heels.
  • Dress in layers. Mornings can be cool and fog can roll in at the drop of a hat, blanketing one part of the island while the rest is bright and sunny. Evenings can run the gamut for dress; you'll find a restaurant to suit all styles. But do make a reservation, if possible.
  • Nantucket Reds™ are a surefire way to look like a local. A faded, worn-out pair of shorts is a badge of pride. Pick up a hat, pair of pants, or a shirt at Murrays on Main St.
  • One can easily spend a week exploring the beauty of the island, but a day trip is doable if you are pressed for time.
  • Forget the hassle of bringing a car. Everything is walkable in town, and beaches are easily reached by bike, moped, or the island shuttle. The flat terrain of the island makes it perfect for a bike ride.
  • Miacomet Golf Course is a wonderful, challenging public course, with beauty to match. Book a tee time ahead of travel. They also have a nifty restaurant for lunch and dinner, off the beaten path.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
