Once a beehive of activity in the 1800’s; today, Nantucket is a sleepy little island reflective of yesteryear with quaint colonial New England architecture lining cobble stoned streets. As the furthest island east of southern New England mainland, Nantucket was the starting point for fishing and whaling boats to head out into the Atlantic Ocean in the 1800’s; until both industries outgrew the protected, but little Nantucket Harbor. Nantucket Island was left behind slumbering in its former glory. Today proud Sea Captain’s houses line the main streets with widow walks perched on the roofs. Hydrangeas, roses and lilacs peak out from behind picket fences. And chic shops and boutiques fill the colonial buildings that were once the homes of wealthy Sea Captains, and busy businesses in the 1800's.. Walking the streets today, one can easily imagine the hustle and bustle of this village in its heyday. Nantucket exudes a lovely unique quaintness that is all Nantucket and a comfortable relaxed life style that is all New England.
